- Off the Beaten Path – 10 Amazing Places to See near Rome – "The beauty of Rome is well known, but so are not the many villages and realities in its surroundings, forgotten by tourists and obscured by the brightness of the Italian Capital. I want to give these off the beaten path places all the attention they deserve as there are several possibilities to choose a perfect day escape from the bustling city of Rome. You can go hiking, dig deep into archeology or to relax at the beach, I’m sure you’ll find the option that best suits you. And if you have a camera with you, you’ll find plenty of subjects to show to your friends back home, no need to be a professional travel photographer!" – Posted By Dave and Deb – "About Us" – Source: theplanetd – "Adventure is for Everyone!"
- Off the beaten path in Italy – "Because of the name of my company, I get regular requests for itineraries that are at least partly off the beaten track. The definition of off the beaten path in Italy differs depending on how well you know the country. For some, the beaten track includes just Rome, Florence, and Venice, while for others it would certainly include the Amalfi Coast, the Cinque Terre, Pisa, Milan, Siena, and Lake Como. There are entire regions of Italy that are off the radar of foreign tourists (yet full of Italians exploring their own country), but in my experience most travelers want balance. They want to see the Colosseum in Rome but then escape the tourists for awhile. They want to see the main sights in Florence and then head into the countryside for some independent exploration. With that in mind, the places I recommend below are both easily accessible from Italy’s main sights, yet have fewer foreign travelers." – Oct 23, 2014 – Madeline Jhawar – "About" – Source: ITALY Beyond The Obvious – "Italy Trip Planner | Italy Tour Guide"
- Off the Beaten Path in Italy’s Small Towns – "Italy is the most visited country in the world. Like other tourists, I have visited Rome’s Colosseum, Vatican City’s chapels, Florence’s Duomo, Venice’s canals and Milan’s shopping centers. While all of these sights are notable must-sees, they are also overwhelmingly crowded with visitors from around the world. On my most recent trip to Italy, I decided to do something different: get away from the known destinations, explore the small towns and learn a bit more about the local culture. Follow me on my path below as I travel to Italy’s less-visited small towns." – 06/04/2014 02:40 pm ET | Updated Aug 04, 2014 – Sucheta Rawal, Travel Writer, Founder of Go Eat Give – "About Us" – Source: The HUFFINGTON POST – " Inform • Inspire • Entertain • Empower" – Edition: U.S.

- Friuli-Venezia Giulia: Italy off the beaten track – "Friuli-Venezia Giulia is tucked into the north-east corner of Italy, bordering Austria and Slovenia. Much of it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, so there is a fascinating mix of cultures in this region - Italian, Austrian and Slavic. There is also a lot of very good wine here, which has made my many visits to family here over the years nicely mellow affairs." – Published on Sep 14, 2014 – by: Paris Franz

- THE DOLCE VITA DIARY: episode 1 – "When I lived in Positano on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, I met Daniele, who taught me the secret to happiness, to living well, the dolce vita and his theory on why so many people struggle to live a happy balanced simple life. Italians have a saying "Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano" which literally translated means - "He who goes slow, goes safe and goes far" but I guess it's similar in English to "slow and steady wins the race" and basically means that although something may take longer, in the end, patience is always rewarded..If you are a dreamer or a traveller or just working or studying and saving money until you can visit a place like Italy, follow me on social media for daily escapism and inspiration." – Published on Jul 19, 2016 – by: Kylie Flavell
- Dream of Italy: Full Naples/Amalfi Coast Episode – "In the fourth episode of Dream of Italy (new PBS travel series), we travel to Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Neapolitans are serious about their coffee and we visit the historic Gran Caffè Gambrinus to taste what some say is the best espresso in the city. Naples is also famous for its tailoring tradition and we visit Rubinacci for an inside look. Host Kathy McCabe attends pizza school with master Enzo Coccia and learns it isn’t easy to make a perfect pizza. A visit to Via San Gregorio Armeno reveals a street full of Christmas crèches and caricatures. Mount Vesuvius looms large over life here and we venture into the crater with guide Roberto Addeo. In the shadow of Vesuvius we enjoy a local folk music performance before venturing to the Amalfi Coast. We visit some very special vines at Tenuta San Francesco, watch paper being made at Amatruda in the town of Amalfi, learn to make limoncello with a local, watch a cooking demonstration with Chef Christoph Bob at Monastero Santa Rosa and go fishing with local Costabile Laudano." – Published on Jun 5, 2015 – by: dreamofitaly
