♥ Si! I want YOU to experience the Italy that I love and am passionate about!
♦ Massimo Burgio, Social Media Expert (Rome, Italy):
“Io sono Italiano – I’m Italian, and currently live in Rome. I generally don’t trust travel tip books about traveling to Italy as – believe me – 80% of them is packed with stereotypes, or with tips that are good in the city but not in the countryside, or good in the north but not in the south… understanding Italians and their ways, with all the regional and local variations, it’s not easy. And I’m not talking dialects, that’s a totally different planet – I mean ways of interacting on human basis.
‘Victoria’s Travel Tipz’ gets it. The book is easy to easy to ready and makes it easy for you to localize which section can be more useful to you. The tips are spot on, and Victoria’s way of sharing them is funny and entertaining, making things simple to learn. Don’t expect to be able to engage in complex conversations, but among the things you’ll learn to say and all the body signs, behavioral and expectations tips you’ll get from this book you’ll definitely be able to interact with people in a more relaxed and confident way at your next trip to Italy.
Plus, the book is light enough for you to carry at all times during your trip, and you can probably read it all at once during your transoceanic flight from the US! Highly recommended.”♦ JoAn Locktov, Author, Bella Figura Publications (US):
“How I wish I had read this book before my first trip to Italy! A lovely guide book filled to the brim with practical tips to make sure your Italian adventures are informed, safe and enjoyable. Victoria bases her suggestions on her own extensive travel experience and also includes excellent tips from her community of Italy travel experts.”
“This book provides the needed information about, Italy’s most authentic way of life. It’s literally a mirror of what Italians are and what to expect when traveling in the “Bel Paese”.
Highly recommended a worth a (or more) reading from the cover page to the very last page of the book. It’s a privileged access to Italy’s culture, way not to miss it.
Victoria De Maio, congratulations for your book that perfectly depicts Italy, Italians and Italianism in all its splendor!
A must read for discovering and enjoying the Italian lifestyle.”
“This is the perfect guide for anyone planning a trip to Italy, Concise and up-to-date, Travel TipZ Italian Style is well written and informative. Victoria’s travel tips are organized in sections, making it simple to find what you need. Her sense of humor sprinkled throughout the book allows the reader to learn in a fun way. It is apparent that Victoria’s passion for Italy, as well as her multiple travel experiences makes her an expert in suggesting the best ways to enjoy Italy. An added bonus is the section called More Expert TipZ, where the author has invited eighteen other ‘experts’ on Italy to weigh in with one tip each.
I highly recommend this guide to anyone going to Italy, first-timers as well as seasoned travelers. I guarantee that you will discover something you didn’t know.”
“Happened to read this book as a foreigner living in Italy since more than 10 years now. I guess I can evaluate the quality of Victoria’s TipZ, even if I am not American (to whom the author addresses her book mainly). This book is absolutely worth being read before coming to Italy, not only for Americans. Victoria provides well-researched and detailed information, good tips and hints and she presents all this with a most pleasurable sense of humor. I loved her positive attitude towards her readers as well as to Italy and the Italians and their different way of living,
I loved her relaxed Dolce Vita approach of traveling (enjoy what you see, be flexible, ‘come with an open mind, an open heart and embrace the differences’) and also the Italian proverbs she added. I can highly recommend this book!”
“An amazing book to have while you travel around Italy with all the information you need to hand and a fantastic introduction to Italy. Warm and witty and well worth a read. Victoria captures the essence of Italy and its culture. Best read with a glass of Prosecco.”
“Among European destinations, Italy tends to be at once the most alluring and the most perplexing. Having some accurate information in your pocket before you go will save you time, and allow you to relax and enjoy instead of dealing with the many complications that one often encounters when traveling to land of La Dolce Vita.
Victoria’s advice is concise and accurate. You can find bigger, more comprehensive guides when looking for specific hotels, etc. But as far as an overview of details of traveling through the Bel Paese, you can’t do better than this.”
