I haven’t been everywhere in Italy. But I have traveled extensively throughout the country, both as a guidebook writer and as a resident.

I have been to 16 out of Italy’s 20 regions. I have also visited Vatican City and San Marino, two tiny countries that share the Italian peninsula with Italy.

It is my goal, of course, to visit all 20 Italian regions. The only thing that has hindered me in this quest is the fact that I keep going back to places in Italy that I love.

This site contains posts about every region in Italy. Below is an interactive map of Italy that will take you to the posts I have written about each region.

The regions I have visited are marked in blue, while the ones I have yet to explore are in lavender. You can click on the map to find posts on the site related to each region. Or, scroll down past the map to find a listing of villages, towns, and cities I have visited in each Italian region with related links.

Where I’ve Been: Italy’s Regions, Cities, and Villages

Traveling is so much easier than writing! I have visited far more places in Italy than I have written about. But I wanted to make a list of them here to give you (and me) a sense of where I have and have not been.

See a place on the list that I have yet to cover on the blog? Get in touch! I’m happy to share what I know about each of these places. And perhaps an email conversation will evolve into a post I can publish here.
