It’s summer, which means every country with a tourism budget is pulling out the stops to get people to choose them over the other worthy vacation candidates. Italy is no exception, and there have been several articles in English newspapers and online news outlets over the past few months highlighting some of Italy’s choice destinations. Here are just a few recent ones:
- With hotel prices rising along with the value of the Euro, it might be more cost-effective to rent yourself an Italian villa instead.
- The New York Times’ top restaurant critic, Frank Bruni, headed to Puglia not long ago to sample the local fare. I think he liked it.
- Rick Steves might have his own TV show, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still write for other outlets – this time it’s CNN’s travel section, and it’s about the northern regions of Italy which remain heavily influenced by their Germanic neighbors and Germanic past.
