When we can't be there...

Do you dream about visiting Italy? If you’ve never been or are planning your second, third or twentieth trip, Italy somehow holds a special place in your heart. And there’s some kind of yearning that you feel when you can’t be there.

When we can’t visit Italy as often as we’d like (or in 2020, when we would like), it's frustrating. It can seem like our dreams are on hold and that’s no fun at all.

As we wait to go to beautiful Italy, why not join us to plan your future trips and learn all about Italian food, wine and culture. It's just like relaxing in the piazza with your favorite friends, talking, laughing and learning about Italy.

Meet your host



Katy first arrived in Italy over 20 years ago inspired by her studies and favorite books like A Room With a View. Her first taste of la dolce vita on the shores of Lake Garda sparked a series of adventures up and down the "boot" - from Venice to Sicily.


Even after over 30 trips to Italy, Katy still finds wonder and excitement in planning her travels. She loves to share her finds and experience with her listeners on the Untold Italy travel podcast and via her blogs Untold Italy and Untold Morsels.


Untold Italy Insiders is her project to bring the people, stories, food, wine, history and culture of Italy into the homes of people around the world knowing that this will enrich their travel experiences when they finally arrive in (or return to) bella Italia!
