Everyone seems to have their favorite travel souvenir. Some people can’t come home without a coffee mug or a shot glass or snow globe. Others go for tee-shirts or spoons. You know who you are! Here at Tour Italy Now, we are major into refrigerator magnets. In many ways, they are the perfect travel souvenir of your Italian vacation. They’re super-easy to find in your travels — they’re available all over Italy and easy to carry and, best of all, when you get home, easy to display.
Tour Italy Now’s very own Priscila Siano has been collecting fridge magnets of her travels for years. Priscila and Dominic’s refrigerator is covered with them, each a special memento that commemorates their travels around Italy, to places like Rome, Milan, Florence … and other places as well of course. The cool thing about souvenir fridge magnets is that they are a constant reminder of your travels. Every time you open the fridge, no matter how rushed or preoccupied you are with life, your eye catches a photograph or sketch of some famous attraction, the leaning Tower of Pisa, the Pantheon, Pompei, and you are instantly transported back to your vacation in Italy. If you’re like me, you’ll be pining for your next one!
Tour Italy Now likes fridge magnets so much, Dominic and Priscila had one custom-made and sent it out to this year’s customers with a holiday greeting. There it is, to your right. Does that not transport you to Italy on the spot!
You don’t have to wait to take a vacation in Italy to get a fridge magnet. In addition to being souvenirs, they are perfect bucket list reminders! That’s right! If you’re thinking of taking a trip to Italy, why not be proactive and order a fridge magnet as a reminder of your plan to take an Italian vacation this year (With Tour Italy Now, of course!) There’s a great selection of fridge magnets featuring attractions in Italy at CafePress.com.
