Victoria DeMaio of www.postcardsfromtravelpizazz.com joins me to share her tips and insight on traveling through Italy with her organized groups and her independant travels.
We talk about the great things to do, how to get from here to there, and why indulging in getting lost is the way to go.
Even if you've been to Rome, Florence, and Venice 5 times there is always something to enjoy and a fun way to do it.
I'm inspired by Victoria and her passion for Italy and it comes through with her every word.
Think about enjoying the Sistine Chapel with no one else during regular visiting hours, using the new train option, tours with wonderful tour companies, and blogging about it all the while.
Victoria you put a smile on my face and I'm certain you'll help many others find their way in Italy.
Shannon Kenny, the founder of Arte al Sole, joined me for a great segment about her wonderful camp for kids in Italy. Through a diverse and fun program children enjoy art, food, culture, language, and natural sciences. With six locations throughout Italy you're certain to find one (or two, or three) that perfectly fit the bill.

Arte al Sole is a summer day camp for international children offering week-long sessions based on the art, culture, and natural science of Italy with locations in Panicale, Umbria; Lucca, Montepulciano, and Florence in Tuscany; Rome; and Puglia. Children ages 6-12 will explore the artistic and natural wonders of these inspiring environments through exciting and engaging activities in art history, fine arts principles, nature walks, sketching and painting, collage, architecture, sculpture, craftsmanship, and science. Each session includes a cooking lesson preparing regional dishes and a fieldtrip to local museums and architectural sites. The program is entirely in English, offering an optimal language immersion experience for children of all ages and languages. A teen leadership program is also offered for students ages 13-17.

James Martin has been going to Italy since the 70's and has witnessed the changes, he lives there a few months of the year, writes for About.com, created 2 wonderful apps: Tuscany for Foodies and Sardinia from the Inside Out, was an archeologist, and anthropologist, and has wonderful insight about the hidden treasures of Italy.
Peruse his blog and you'll see what I mean. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to James about the food of Italy and how different it is from town to
First of all let me tell you how much I don't like tour. This may sound strange, but it's exactly at the base of how I design my own "tours for people who don't go on tours." I don't want my clients to feel like tourists when they are traveling with me. I was born and raised in the capital of the Renaissance, aka Florence Italy, so you can imagine how many "herds" of people I would see being dumped every day on my city's most histo
Join Richard Bowen of Context Travel and I as we discuss the impact of WWII on Italy and how the Monuments Men of the Allied forces and the Italian citizens saved their art for the world.
I read Robert Edsel's wonderful book Saving Italy about the Monuments Men and was inspired to dig deeper into a part of Italy's history that I've largely ignored. I guess the snob of Ancient Rome, Medieval, and Renaissance Italy got the best of me for many years...until now.
This is a fascinating subject that includes the near loss of Da Vinci's Last Supper, the loss of the complete collections of many of the museums throughout Italy, and how the Monuments Men worked day and night to protect, preserve, recover, and replace many of the world's most famous art, manuscripts, and architecture.
Be on the look out for the soon to be released movie starring George Clooney and Matt Damon as I'm sure, as much as you might like my show their star power slightly out powers mine. Also read Saving Italy, and visit http://www.monumentsmenfoundation.org/
Visit Contexttravel.com and set up a custom Rome tour focused on WWII.
