The first time I traveled to Italy I fell in love with it. I started this blog when I was preparing to go to Italy for the third time. It seemed like I could never get enough of this beautiful place. I thought after that 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 this my fifth trip to Bella Italia. I know that I will always return. I feel at home there!
I am a second-generation Italian-American with a passion for travel, and a particular love of Italy. I am a freelance writer and photographer, and write for La Gazzetta Italiana as well as several websites. I recently published a photo book from the first of three months in Italy, and have just completed writing my first book, “Memoirs of a Solo Traveler – My Love Affair with Italy,” which is based on this blog and my solo travel adventure to Italy.
I am working on a second book, My Love Affair with Sicily, and hope to publish in early 2014.
