I can concur as I have been to italy, spent 3 weeks there. What I really liked about the Italian ladies is how they always dress up nice when they go out. No walkin around in sweatpants and t shirts for those ladies. They wearin dresses and heels and makeup, and they look good.
I lived in Vicenza (between Verona and Venice) Italy for 2 years. I can tell you for sure that there are SO many hot women in that country. Big thing is, if you dont speak the language they wont give you the time of the day. If you want the hottest women there, catch a train and head to southern Italy. Sicily is loaded also.
Unbelievably hot, but they let it all go as soon as they hit their early thirties (or as soon as they're married... usually the same thing), and then it's nothing but cankles and angry-Italian-mama from then on out... unless their actresses or models, in which case plastic surgery keeps them going.
Also, you don't have to speak Italian if you're blond. Italian women love blonds. I am not blond. I learned how to speak Italian.
