Are you superstitious? If so there are plenty of opportunities in Italy to make your dreams come true. The most famous location for making wishes is probably the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Toss a coin in the fountain and you’re guaranteed to return to the Eternal City one day. I know this one works – I’ve been fortunate to return to Rome twice.

If you’re more interested in general good luck, then you should head to Villa San Michele on the island of Capri. There’s a granite sphinx on a terrace overlooking the sea – what a fantastic view! If you pat the sphinx’s hind quarters then good luck is sure to come your way.

And if you’re seeking good luck in love, Italy’s got you covered too. The statue of Juliet in Verona attracts millions of visitors who rub her right breast and ask for her assistance in matters of the heart.
