Ciao! The first time I traveled to Italy I fell in love with the country and the people. In 2011 when I was preparing to go to Italy for the third time, I started this blog. I love Italy and it seemed like I could never get enough of this beautiful place.
After that trip I thought I wouldn’t feel the need to return, but in less than a year I made my 4th trip to this beautiful country of my grandparents. And the following year, I went back again, making my 5th trip to Bella Italia. In June of 2015 I returned from my 7th trip to Italy, and then in September of 2016 I went to Italy because I wanted to write. Afterward, I took a 10-day road trip in Sicily in October. And I just returned from a fabulous 10 days trip in Tuscany and Le Marche. I know I’ll always go back to the Bel Paese as long as I can, because most of all, I feel at home there!
I’d love to share my Italy experiences with you through my stories and photographs. You’ll read about the good and bad in Italy but always with a special love for the Italian people. This isn’t your typical guide about what to see in Italy. It’s experiential, informative, and hopefully entertaining.
You’ll feel my my passion and also my frustration at times about how things are in the Bel Paese. You’ll see my photos, but they won’t be the same ones you’ve seen a hundred times on other sites or in guidebooks. I share a glimpse into the heartbeat of Italy and a sense of its people.
If you’d like to experience an Italian opera, sleep in a convent, participate in an Italian soccer game as a spectator, learn how to make gnocchi from scratch, hike old goat trails in the Cinque Terre and high above the Amalfi Coast, and sip cappuccino while living la dolce vita, this is the place for you.
