    Buildings of Italian Architecture.

    by Pakistaniguy Updated Jan 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I really like this thing about this amazing country - Switzerland that even its just a small country but the diversity and blend of cultures is so prominent and everyone is allowed to protect its culture and live life according to his or her own wish !

    Fondest memory: The buildings are one of the most eye catching thing of this town. I am very sure that u will definitely take atleast 2 or 3 pictures of buildings alone. Overhere are the architecture of the buildings is very similiar to the ones in Italy. May be because these people are mostly italian decendents.
