Elettra Boccia

I look at a place and immediately start to see it divided into sentences and paragraphs – sentences and paragraphs that I may never write, but will most definitely remember.

My Italy
Watching the sun slowly setting over the sea…

The place I’ve never been to
The Alps in wintertime. I just can’t imagine myself up there, surrounded by all that snow.

The city I’m always happy to go back to
In Italy, Venice – to make sure that bar in the Castello district is still open (for a Spritz and a tuna sandwich). Outside Italy, Berlin – it’s a lasting love affair.

What I miss when I’m abroad
Not being able to communicate with the locals in their language

A glassful of Italy

A whirlwind wine tour from Puglia to Tuscany, via Sicily, Procida, Capri and Umbria, staying in 6 amazing wine hotels from ItalyTraveller's collection.
