The US Tour Operators Association (USTOA) has just voted Italy the number one worldwide destination in which to take a vacation. Italy has secured the top spot for the last eight years in a row thanks to the ancient architecture, scenic walks, gourmet cuisine and fine wines. The second place was a tie between the UK and Australia.
The survey also revealed some hot destinations for 2011 including Peru, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico. Turkey, Egypt, Ireland and Mexico also fared well, thanks to the value of the dollar.
