What makes different from the other travel information sites is the quality of the stories, which travellers share. They are different than the practical and impersonal information one can find on other travel information sites. Written by travellers who might not be professional writers, the readers of the blog have the opportunity to read descriptions of places and advice by their own fellow travellers. And they get the opportunity to travel though different parts of Italy even before they actually go there. And when they come back to India, to share their own impressions – to inspire others.

To appeal to the Indian travelers’ senses is planning to soon launch a section dedicated to Italian food and wine.
