Fantastic Italian travel resource

If you are looking for a podcast to help make 2020 brighter, this is it. It allows you to dream about travelling to Italy, and to start planning where to go and what to see and do besides the major tourist hotspots and attractions.

The guests they have on the show are fantastic and have real passion and enthusiasm for their region/area that is contagious and all of a sudden your planned 1-2 trip day of that area has expanded to at least a week or 2 and you still don’t know how you’re going to fit everything in.

I love this podcast and I find it hard waiting until Thursday before a new one is released.

Untold Italy is exactly what it says. It shows Italy from an insiders view, and allows those of us planning on travelling to Italy, whenever it is safe again, to add destinations and experiences that we wouldn’t have known about.
