Via dell'Amore

You may be puzzled by Italian politics and organization, but you can’t avoid falling in love with Italy culture, sights and charm.

This is exactly what happend to me, and even after 40 years spent in this country I just can’t stop feeling in love with the art, the food, the views, the weather and the people. There’s so much to do, see and enjoy!

Sad enough, the usual “pizza, pasta, mandolino” cliché is hard to die, and most visitors may get trapped in a “classical” tour and miss the best.

Delightfully Italy is aimed at sharing my favorite places, itineraries and recommendations, (“trips and tips”), as well as my passion for “off the beaten track” itineraries in this beautiful country.

Some quick notes:

– I’ve been (usually many times) to all the places I talk about (including hotels and restaurants). My posts are hands on, live comments. Real life, no invention.

– I’m suggesting only places and hotels/restaurant I really liked. Delightfully Italy participates to a limited number of affiliation programs that I believe can add value to my readers and followers, but this doesn’t affect my independence in suggesting the best places to visit (imho).

– Delightfully Italy is not a travel diary: it’s aim is to give you good travel advice (imho) and make your life as easy as possible when planning your trip to/in Italy. That’s why I’ll add pictures, maps, links to site descriptions (often wikipedia) and to hotels/restaurants. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments!

– I’m passionate about travel counseling, and I enjoy giving travel advice. If you’re planning a trip to Italy and didn’t find the info you were looking for in this blog, just ask, and I’ll do my best to help

– I shoot most of the pictures I post. Please don’t copy and use them without my approval. Said so, I’ll be more than happy to grant you free usage of my pictures if you quote me and my blog.

– I may use somebody else’s picture if I describe a restaurant or a hotel. In this case I may use pictures from their web site (it’s a referral). Keep it in mind before infringing copyright laws.

So here we go, off the beaten track!

  1. Looks like you have the start of a wonderful travel blog for Italy. I am looking forward to all your articles. The first I’ve read was Lake Garda biking. It looks like an off the beaten path recommendation that so many people are always hoping to find. Very nicely done.

  2. Thanks for stopping by TravelByTerry, my own quirky travel blog. I was so impressed by your site that I just sent an email to about thirty of our leisure travel agents recommending it as a great source of info on Italy. We are a Travel Leaders travel agency with multiple locations in Texas.
