Description
Have you ever wanted to travel to Italy? Are you looking to bring the healthy Italian lifestyle into your home or maybe even retire in Italy? If so, this is an essential guide that not only explores the 11 elements of the Italian lifestyle but also how to move to Italy. The host of the Dream of Italy travel series on PBS, author Kathy McCabe takes you on an informative journey that will help make your own dream of Italy come true in big and small ways. This book dives into all things Italy – the land, food, family, art & culture, beauty, pace of life, passion, movement, community, celebrations, and sense of home. Throughout the book, McCabe shares her own family story to help readers understand how to investigate their Italian ancestry and possibly claim Italian citizenship jure sanguinis, providing an easy way to live and work in Italy. For those who dream of spending a sabbatical in Italy or moving to Italy full-time, McCabe talks to relocation and legal experts on everything from how to secure a visa to how to navigate Italian healthcare to buying and renovating your dream Italian home. This is so much more than an Italy travel guide. Its anecdotes and practical tips will help you discover a place that will change your life.
About the author
Kathy McCabe is the host and executive producer of the hit travel TV series "Dream of Italy" airing on PBS stations, Create TV, and Amazon Prime. She believes Italy can change your life - whether you travel to Italy, move to Italy, or just live like an Italian at home. It was McCabe's first visit to Italy in 2002 when she fulfilled her grandfather's dream of the family rediscovering his father's birthplace that then gave birth to Dream of Italy, the award-winning travel magazine and membership site. 180 issues (and counting) of the magazine cover every corner of Italy detailing where to go, who to meet, what to see, where to stay and what to eat. The travel magazine is the inspiration for the TV series which includes two seasons, the "Dream of Italy: Tuscan Sun Special" and "Dream of Italy: Travel, Transform and Thrive" with guests Sting & Trudie Styler, Francis Ford Coppola, Under the Tuscan Sun author Frances Mayes, best-selling financial author David Bach, retiree Sally Carrocino and interior designer Arlene Antoinette Gibbs. Viewers describe McCabe as "warm," "genuine," "authentic" and "filled with joy." She is also the host of the "Dream of Italy Podcast" which was lauded by The New York Times as one of "13 Podcasts for Wandering Souls."
