You may have the universe if I may have Italy.

– Giuseppe Verdi

The best of Rome!

Italy has always held sway over me. I was obsessed with Roman history and mythology as a kid, and studied Italian in college. Some of my favorite moments of our month-long European adventure were in Italy, and I ate the best meal of my life here! As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to love it, we now live here, just an hour outside Venice. I collect our Italian favorites right here!
