Overwhelmed by options? Here are all my Italy boards - free and paid - organized by region of Italy.

First up: my dream hotel bucket list! If you're not attached to an area yet but want some visual inspiration, start here. 

Veneto

How you may know it: Venice, Dolomites, Verona 

Formerly a wealthy empire all its own, Veneto has some of the best of Italy. From the classics like Venice to off-the-beaten-path gems like Bassano del Grappa, you'll love Veneto. Don't forget that Prosecco comes from here too!

Since I live close to Venice, I put all my Venice guides in one place: 

Friuli Venezia Giulia

How you may know it: Trieste, Aviano, Dolomites

An underrated region in northeast east Italy, and my current home! Known for its Austrian and Slovenian influences.

Liguria

How you may know it: Cinque Terre, Genoa, and the Italian Riviera

Beautiful water, gorgeous coastal towns, and great hiking. Eat pesto, foccacia, and as much seafood as you can!

Emilia Romagna

How you may know it: Bologna, Modena, Parma

In a country of good food, Emilia Romagna reigns as the foodie capital of Italy! It’s the home of parmigiano-reggiano, tortellini, lasagna and more!

Tuscany/Toscana

How you may know it: Florence, Siena, and the Chianti wine region

Tuscany is beloved for a reason! Its amazing food, gorgeous rolling hills and fascinating history means it lives up to the hype.

Lazio

How you may know it: Rome

Rome is iconic, and one of my favorite places in the world. From the history and architecture to the food and culture, it’s an incredible place!

Campania

How you may know it: Naples, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii

Whether you want great food, amazing archaeological sites, stunning seasides or an inside look into daily Italian life, you can find it in Campania!

Sicily/Sicilia

How you may know it: Palermo, Catania, Mount Etna

Trentino Alto Adige

How you may know it: Bolzano, Dolomites, Trento

This region has some of the best Dolomites in the country! It has a lot of Austrian influence as well, giving it unique food and culture.

Sardinia/Sardegna

How you may know it: Cagliari, Olbia

Italy's lesser-known island region offers some of the best beaches in the country! 

Umbria

How you know it: Assisi, Orvieto

This region has much of the hilly beauty of Tuscany with some Rome/Lazio influences!

Valle d’Aosta

How you may know it: classic Italian Alps, including the Matterhorn (Cervino) and Mont Blanc (Monte Bianco)

Valle d'Aosta may be one of the smallest regions of Italy, but its mountains are some of the biggest!

Lombardy/Lombardia

How you may know it: Milan and the Italian lakes

Lombardy can claim the both the style of Milan and the tranquility of Lake Como and Lake Garda.

COMING SOON:

I already have the research for all these, they're just not organized into premade guides yet! Reach out if you've got a trip in mind - I make personalized guides all the time!

Puglia/Apulia

How you may know it: Bari, Lecce

The heel of the boot is less noticed by tourists, although recently it’s become more popular in recent years.

Cortina d'Ampezzo
@teaspoonofnose
Great jumping off point for the Dolomites! Very much a resort town, it attracts the who’s who for skiing. They hosted the Winter Olympics in 1956! It’s still a good spot for winter sports or summer hiking, and a good base for exploring this part of the Dolomites.

Cividale del Friuli
@teaspoonofnose
A beautiful quiet city, with almost no tourists. Has several historic bridges, an archaeology museum, and is a jumping off point for Friuli Venezia Giulia's excellent wine region.

Amateur Italian, travel advisor, and adventurous eater! I’m a travel creative living in small town northern Italy, and I've been planning travel for over 15 years. I've lived on three continents and visited over 40 countries, so I'm passionate about helping travelers experience the best of a location, no matter where! I love both/and travel: I want to see the big sights AND the local hangouts, the big cities AND the small towns. I’d love to help you do it too! If you’re going to Rome for the first time, you don’t need me to tell you to see the Colosseum. But you might want me to tell you if it’s better as a guided tour or on your own, what add-on’s are worth the money, and what are the extra secret things your ticket can get you! My favorite part of travel is eating well: finding the local haunts, tasting a new wine, and trying the local dishes. Amazing food doesn't have to be expensive: sometimes the best of a place is in the street food! But if it is a splurge, I'll make sure it's worth every penny. I'd love to work with you to create the trip of your dreams!
