Italian vs. U.S. healthcare: My healthy heart is with Italy but some here see problems hidden under the cheap costs
Italian vs. U.S. healthcare. I love the Italian healthcare system. Here's why: I had my annual full-body check up Wednesday. They gave me a battery of tests and consultations. It cost all of 450 euros. In the U.S. it would be five times that. However, an American doctor and Italian doctor here both punched holes in the Italian healthcare.
The 2008 film "Mamma Mia!" made Skopelos famous and made a tiny church atop a 300-foot cliff one of the world's ideal places to get married. Now couples from all over come to this little Greek island for their ceremony. They say it's more romantic than you can imagine and less hassle than you'll believe.
Skopelos became famous in 2008 when Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sang and danced their way across the island in "Mamma Mia!" But the scenes you see in the movie are just a snippet of the real beauty of this island of 5,000 people. Great beaches. Deep forests. Excellent food. It's our new favorite Greek island.
