RenataFTorres I stayed in the Veneto Region (North) for a while (which is nothing short of breathtaking), then went down to Livorno and sorroundings. It was spring, so the temperature was just warm enough for us to enjoy the beach and not roast in the sun. _ Our flight back was from Milan, so we did stopped by some touristic atractions on the way back up as well, like the tower of Pisa and Florence. We've been to Venice before as well, super cool!
I'm ok with Duolingo's methodology for Italian, maybe it's "easy" for me because IT is very similar to PT... I'm learning Irish on it as well, and it is a bit harder. The biggest advantage of Duolingo I think is the reminders for daily practice, and the repetition. I have an Irish friend who's learning German on it and he can have a conversation with people already!
