Continuing the theme we started last week with our look at Venice, we’ll do a round-up of the various articles on Italy that have been cropping up in the print media over the last few weeks. The Melbourne Age has no fewer that four stories on Italy this month, starting with a look at cycling through the hills of Tuscany, moving to the other end of the country to try out some of Sicily’s delicacies and then heading north to a health resort on Lake Garda.
And if that wasn’t enough for you, consider having a look at the new couples obsession in Rome: chaining padlocks to metal posts on Ponte Milvio.
The New York Times checks out the sulfur baths near Viterbo, and later visits Sardinia’s port city of Cagliari. Returning to Tuscany, we have two articles, one from Canada’s Globe and Mail and the other from the UK’s Independent.
In the blogosphere, the Vancouver Sun has been tracking the progress of Stephanie, in Me and my Euro Summer; her Italy coverage starts at day 29, in Florence. Episode 102 of the Amateur Traveller podcast focuses on the Cinque terra and Lake Como.
