Delicious Italy was co-founded in Rome by Philip Curnow and Giuseppina Marcolini and has been helping independent travelers discover the unique food, culture and history of the Italian regions since 2000. 

With almost 3000 articles and having replied to more than 4500 travel requests, we are happy to say that we are a trusted travel hub not only for leisure visitors, but also companies and media who contact us for ideas and local support (see list below).

Our aim has always been to discover and communicate directly both people and incoming proposals which help create a unique vacation or stay in Italy while always eating well. We also provide dedicated services for the press and media, as well as companies and organizations looking to realize adhoc projects, events and group tours. More of this at www.deliciousitaly.biz
