italy travel blog

Italy is the country that captures my heart every time I visit. It is one of the main inspirations behind this travel blog.

From its vibrant cities to the gorgeous Italian lakes and coast, the landscapes will get you first. And then there’s the food and culture. There is truly something to enchant everyone.

The country’s famous tourist attractions are popular for good reason but it’s also been my mission to uncover the best kept secrets in Italy – local restaurants, quiet regions and bustling smaller cities.

Italy off the beaten track is very special and I want to help you discover it. Below are all the links to the best information on this site to help with inspiration and planning for your most memorable vacation to Italy.
