The Grand Finale of My Favorite Italian Websites


When I first set out to make my list of thirty sites I thought I might struggle a bit to come up with that many.

54 blog and travel sites later I realized I may have bitten off more than I could chew.

I decided I would have to somehow narrow my selections and I did so by adding only those that I have not previously mentioned before.  That was almost too much for me and it feels unbearable to just move on without a mention to these amazing people.  So without further ado, here are the very first websites to steal my Italy obsessed heart.  Do not miss a single one!!

I am working to put all the blogs on my official list.  CLICK HERE to see them all.

At Home in Tuscany  She makes you feel like you are right there in the midst of it all.

Bell’Avventura  Love this blog, a must for anyone traveling to the Amalfi Coast.

Golden Days in Italy  Not only does this woman have a fantastic book out that I have featured, but she manages a blog that does just what it says…presents to the reader delightful golden days found only in Italy.


Italofile  This blog makes my mouth drool.  It has everything here.  If you like what she has done, check out her other site at Miss Adventures.

Margie in Italy  I have been a devoted follower to this lovely lady.

Umbria Lovers  These two are an amazing source of true, non touristic information in Umbria.  Very entertaining as well.

What to Eat in Rome – Who doesn’t love a good food blog??

Dark Rome Blog – Several articles about places to see, things to do in Rome.

The Pines of Rome – Another American who has made her home in Rome.  She has a helpful section listing exhibits currently on display.

Feel like you belong on my list or have a favorite link to share? Let me know!!

I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.

Love it??  Pass it on!

        Thank you, I do hope that you would travel to the Lorenzago di Cadore, Italy area. It is set in the Dolomites and the food is amazing. It is actually a town made famous by the Pope, John Paul, he loved the town and would hike around the mountain areas, when he was in good shape. There is now a home there, in which he would stay when visiting in the summer, which has been turned into a focal point for pilgrims coming to see many of his belongings, in a less crowded setting than Rome. I am also excited to visit Venice, Rome and Sorrento, which will also be on the agenda this September. I am so excited to have found your cite! M.
