Dear Italy Traveler,
So, you're dreaming of Italy? The art, history, cafes, gondolas, oh, and let's not forget the food!
Whether you're set to fly off in a few weeks or preparing to do so in a few years, you can probably close your eyes and taste, hear, and feel the incredible richness of Italy beginning to stir inside of you already. I know I can...all the time!
"The Problem with Trying to Prepare for a Trip to Italy..."
You also, if you're like many of my Italian language students over the years who've taken my classes and purchased my books in order to prepare for their trips to Italy, might be a little anxious and overwhelmed. -anxious because you're not sure if you're preparing properly for what you hope will be a dream trip and...overwhelmed with the sea of information out there to wade through.
Add to this all the travel guide books you can find the seemingly endless resources online, and, if you're like most people, your head might be spinning.You could spend the next decade wading through all the information out there.
God help you if you tend to be a perfectionist!
But don't worry. Take a deep breath and relax...I'm going to introduce you to a resource guide that I've created that cuts right through the information overload and that gets to the heart of what you need to know to be soundly prepared for your dream trip.
First, allow me to introduce myself briefly so you know why you can listen to me.
"I've Been Guiding Others Related to ItalyMy name is Paola Nanni-Tate.I'm an Italian citizen who has lived most of my life in the United States after I married my American husband 46 years ago. But...all things Italy run through my blood.My hometown is Bologna, Italy, home of the world's first official university and some of Italy's most heralded cuisine. My parents were both Italian, and my daughter lives in Italy as do relatives and lifelong friends, all of whom I visit along with my husband several times a year. On each trip, we make it a point to tour some new region or city or to experience more richly the wonders of Italy that we've already visited.In short, traveling Italy is a lifelong passion of mine. I can never get enough, and I love sharing my finds!In the arena of language, I've invested my working life helping people around the world to learn both English and Italian. I have five published Italian language books, most of them which you can find at popular bookstores and all of which you can find online.In addition, I have taught Adult Continuing Education courses for years at Ohio State University. Over the years, my students have looked to me not only for Italian language instruction but also for advice on traveling in Italy. They also return with wonderful - side tours they've taken, unique restaurants they discovered, etc..

Okay, I think I've made my point. Now, let's get back to what you're really interested in, and that's preparing for your trip to Italy.
"There are Common Trip Diminishing Mistakes
People Make When Traveling to Italy
Know What They are Before You Go to Avoid Them!"
I'm sorry if I'm sounding negative, but I know that your outcome is to have trip to Italy that is enlivening, stimulating, safe, and memorable...and I also know this isn't going to happen by accident.
|"Our trip was everything we hoped it would be. Thanks for your assistance!"|
Jeanine Williams, Bethesda, MD
You might liken it to a Space Shuttle launch where a detailed checklist is followed to ensure a successful launch and trip. They don't leave it to chance. Now, you don't have to get that detailed, but since you've got considerable time, money and hopes riding on your trip, it behooves you to be very clear ahead of time on what could diminish your experience in Italy.
Common Trip Diminishing Mistakes
- Trying to pack so much in that you exhaust yourself and your family
- Being on a tour that is too constricting or that rushes you
- Missing out on unique attractions that are right near major stops
- Assuming that everyone will be able to speak English
- Feeling isolated because you can't communicate with Italians you meet
- Getting frustrated and lost as you try to find your way around
- Wasting money from not knowing the ins and outs of life in Italy
- Losing your valuable trip time trying to figure out basic things
- Difficulty navigating signs, train stations, ordering at restaurants
Okay, certainly you are aware of the pitfalls of traveling in a foreign country without being prepared.You know you need to prepare for your trip but exactly how to do it and how to do it without sifting through the glut of information is the challenge...until now.
