Sims 3 churns out expensive DLC at an amazing rate. I'm amazed at how many there are and how expensive there are. I enjoyed both Sims 2 and Sims 3, and this DLC lets you interactive with one of the more memorable families in one of the Sims 2 maps.

The rest is really the normal overpriced stuff: new items, clothing, and some new people for you to meet or torture.

It's fun, but it's because Sims 3 is fun, not Monte Vista itself. Know what you're paying for, and don't expect it to change your game fundamentally.

In the heart of the old country

This world is a pleasant surprise, it has a lot of warmth and character to it. The parks make for beautiful pictures. It makes you have the feeling that you are in Italy, full of sims who hold long grudges but also have an incredible amount of passion. One of the best items in the world is the pizza stove, there is even a location where you can dine on pizza with other sims. This is a world that can win over people who usually love seeing lush greens. Still, it isn't the same as an expansion so buy it on sale.

Good Neighborhood with Italian Flavor

Monte Vista is a very well-made world that adds some Italian flair to your Sims game. From the Mediterranean brick houses to the appropriately tinted sunshine to all the Italian families living in the world, this is probably one of the best Sims 3 worlds in terms of immersion. As someone who really likes the Mediterranean aesthetic, this was something that appealed to me a lot. However, like all Sims 3 material, I'd only advise buying this when it's on sale - it's not really necessary for enjoying the game, and I'd only recommend it if you too like the Mediterranean aesthetic. Otherwise, your money is better spent on other Sims material.
