Love and golden suntans are in the air during the the summer in the Med. Since I was a teenager my summers were always spent across the pond. Greece and Italy were the destinations we would always hit. Italy quickly became my family's choice given my great grandparents were all born in Italy. From the Med to the Adriatic, Italy's beaches are the most beautiful! Puglia would be my top choice if you are looking for crystal clear waters. Amalfi if you are looking for a mix of shopping beaches and nightlife. Tuscay beaches in the likes of Portofino and neighboring island for glam. Italy just hits different in the summer.
