whoever tried to research italy before going there found out the hard way that italians think there’s no need for any organization or information for tourists: they rely almost entirely on what the past centuries provided. which makes any trip to italy (at least for me) an endless series of misunderstandings, miscommunications and pure anger.
but i came across a website that gives info on urban italy. great! they have architecture, design, art, gastronomy, etc as well as reviews for places where one can eat or sleep. also, shopping is a goal in itself and treated as such. actually, all the places they cover are potential stops for a customized tour they can make happen for you.
if you are planning any trips to the above mentioned destination and you care to see architecture/art/design more recent than the colosseum, make sure that you bookmark this!
