Straightforward and helpful

As someone who travels and works in Italy frequently I can say, the advice given on this show is solid. You can tell they really love Italy and respect its culture and want to share it from a place of generosity.

“Authentic” Italy

Thankyou Katy for this episode!! As a farmer, it’s generally mother nature that manages our diaries!! We appreciate that whilst sharing their culture & practices is enriching, many Italian purveyors/producers/curators are ultimately earning a living - and many are very generous with “free” time - but it should not be a given.

Love IT!

See what I did there? This is such a fabulous podcast. Heading to Italy in late September and staying 5 nights with Sarah and Salvatore in Umbria right at the beginning. Have booked our whole holiday with much advice from the podcast, website and FB page. So excited!! 😍🇮🇹
