The Charming Small Town In Texas That Was Named After The Country Of Italy
That European vacation you’ve always dreamed of is closer than you think! One of the most unique town names in Texas, Italy is a charming little community about 45 miles south of Dallas. It’s no Venice, but it offers something even better, perhaps – a sense of Southern hospitality that only exists in small-town Texas.
Visit the City of Italy website for more information.
