Italy traveller

I simply love it when I find a new site or blog that talks about my adopted home Italy, Why? Because people are always writing to me and asking this or that. Visas, receipes, locations, where to get married, best place to stay. It's endless, and as much as I love it, I simply can't be the reserve for all this, so here I list a group of blogs that will make you happy and answer all your questions.
If you want to know what real life is like in Italy and how to start a new life here you can of course also order my book.

Como the beautiful

Hidden Italy, the places we visit regularly from Tuscany to the lake district above Como.

When I became a resident in Italy in 2001, I already knew how visitors liked to praise her places, food and art.
I had visited many times as a visitor myself, and been enchanted.
This site is rather designed to show the hidden Italy, the real Italy experienced by it's residents.
The events of the year, from registering as a resident, to celebrating Christmas, Easter and many other festivals, buying a house, working, banking, and still enjoying its beauty, are to be found here.
