About Delicious Italy

Delicious Italy was co-founded in 2000 by Philip Curnow and Giuseppina Marcolini and from our Rome base we have been helping independent travelers and visitors discover the unique food, culture and history of the Italian regions. 

With almost 3000 articles and having replied to more than 5000 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.

Direct Italy Contacts 

All the information contained here based on our own travel experiences as well as personal contacts with regional tourism authorities and other incoming organisations. We actively encourage all our readers to contact directly all the hotels, restaurants, local tour operators etc. featured in the website as you plan your visit. 

Nevertheless, whether you are planning a visit to Italy or are simply curious to ask a question about Italian food, regional culture and lifestyle, we are more than happy to point you in the right direction. Drop us a line via the Contact Form. You can also leave your travel and Italy comments beneath the articles across the website and do share the conversation on the usual social networks.
