A Question about Italy?

Have a question about Italy?

I am happy to try and help wherever I can with advice. Whether your question has to do with Italian facts and figures, insider tips or tourist information please ask away!

My family is from the north of Italy – near Venice and I tend to know this part of Italy best. However I lived in Piedmont for ten years, in the city of Turin, and know a fair bit about this north-western side of Italy too.  Plus we have traveled extensively throughout Italy and spent months on end in regions ranging from Tuscany, to Umbria, to Sardinia.

In fact, there is not a region of Italy that our "team" has not visited.

Wherever in Italy it might be that you need information about I am always willing to try and help answer your questions. If I can’t help then I can certainly point you in the right direction.

You too are welcome to answer any question, share interesting facts on Italy or add a comment.

If you'd like more personalized help, and information on tiny towns we love dearly, but never share publicly, then you are welcome to become a member of A Secret Italy.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Maria
