“The only thing I found missing while reading this book was my location, I was still in Sydney, but my lord, I was transported to the sounds, smells and enjoyment of an exploring romp through one of the most beautiful countries in the world… What a great book for all to fall in love with Italy…” Connie, Indie Books reviewer
