travel quote featured by top international travel blogger, Tracy's Travels in Time 

Are you planning a trip to beautiful Italy? Or are you simply looking for some inspiration for your next travels?

I love reading about new places before I go. It helps gain an understanding and a sense of the culture and history.  Actually seeing the places you have read about makes it even more special when you get there. I spent a few weeks traveling Italy by train a few years ago and it was wonderful to see the works of Michelangelo I had read about in The Agony and the Ecstasy: A Biographical Novel of Michelangelo  a few weeks before my trip.

Don’t limit your reading to the pages of a guide book – I have selected some of the best books about Italy including fictional and non-fictional works to peruse before your trip. If you are thinking of a longer term stay I have included some great books written by authors who have moved to Italy to live and work.

    This post has inspired me to look up some of these books. It’s true that your experience of a country or city can be so much richer if you find a biography or piece of fiction that you can relate to… Great blog Tracy!
