The Real Italy


There is no one real Italy, but many - each one beautiful in its own unique way. Learn about them from those of us who live here.

You've seen Rome, Florence and Venice, but want to see more. You want to get off the beaten path. You're curious what life is actually like outside the tourist circuit.

We're putting together a series of books, written by those who call Italy home. We'll tell you about our favorite places, events, and what it's like to live here.

We will never spam you, sell your email address, or do anything we wouldn't do with our own mammas' email addresses!

Don't want to wait for the books? Follow us on twitter here: @TheRealItaly and our blog here:
