My name is Dion Protani, founder of Italy Review. The Italy Review blog will resume later in the year as the summer season comes to a close and more time is available. Thanks for following up to this point and have a great summer!
Italy Review is an independent guide to Italy, showcasing the very best that the country has to offer. Throughout the three thousand pages of the website you'll find comprehensive tourist information, opinion and original photos.
Alongside the major tourist destinations that you've already heard of, there are thousands of others that may come as a surprise with the intention of the website to provide inspiration for your future trips to the country.
The photos and descriptions on the website are all my own work and are the fruit of my extensive travels around the country. I've visited every place that's listed on the website which means I'm able to give useful advice for first-time visitors.
You can keep in touch with the latest developments in Italy, particularly important at the moment at the time of the pandemic, via my Italy Review Blog for which you'll find links below to the Facebook and Twitter pages.
If you'd just like to start your exploration of Italy with some ideas of places to go then I'd recommend starting at the highlighted Things to see in Italy page. Or using the grid to your right you can click a photo to enter the main menus.
