With a relaxed Italian lifestyle, strikingly picturesque landscapes and a climate similar to nearby North Africa (all just two hours from London) – it’s hardly surprising Sardinia has become an increasingly popular holiday destination in recent years. The world’s first identified ‘Blue Zone’ – a geographic area with inhabitants that, statistically,...

Cinque Terre is one of those places where even if you’re not familiar with the name, then you’ve probably seen pictures of incredible pink, yellow, orange and green houses clinging to the cliffs. The adorable houses not only defy gravity but lend a peaceful, calm vibe to these otherworldly towns. Four of the five towns have direct access to the sea...

THE FIRST THING that must be said about the ancient town of Civita di Bagnoregio, just two hours away from Rome and Florence, is that it is beautiful.

Ashley Cavender made a life-long dream come true this past summer, and it began with a spur-of-the-moment purchase at the beginning of the year. “I was looking at flights with my friend on New Year’s,” Cavender said, “and we found one to Italy.

I recently went to Italy for one very important reason: to eat a lot of pasta. But in addition to suffering from a blissful carb coma for a few nights in a row, I learned a lot about the art of cooking pasta al dente, too. And I'm talking about legitimate cooking lessons from a trusted Italian source - Giovanni Rana, the founder of the fresh-pasta...

Debra and David Levinson manage to be in two places at once. The founders of Mr. & Mrs. Italy are themselves Mr. and Mrs. Italy, and they customize experiences for customers traveling to the country while arranging every intricate detail from Sandy Springs. A summer trip to Italy 20 years ago with their children motivated another trip that winter,...
