My passion for Italy was ignited when I was offered the opportunity to study abroad in college. With my Italian heritage I was eager to find out more about where a large part of my family came from. When I left I didn't know much more than its reputation for great food and wine, but I always knew I would fit right in. It ended up being one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Living in Italy opened me up to a completely new way of life and having the time to travel round the country introduced me to Italy's diverse landscapes and culture. Whether you love art and architecture, fine food and wine or beaches and mountains, Italy has it all. I'm grateful that I have the opportunity to share my passion for Italy on a daily basis and can't wait to show you what this amazing country has to offer.
I'll never forget when…
Visiting the Amalfi Coast for the first time really blew me away. There is a point along the winding coastal road where the trees abruptly end and the whole coastline is revealed before you in a series of pleated headlands. My jaw dropped when I saw it and I became suddenly emotional. There are no descriptions, photos or videos that can prepare you for how incredible the Amalfi Coast actually is. The cliffs plunging into turquoise seas, small villages cascading down mountainsides, and the precipitous hiking paths have to be seen firsthand to be believed.
