Do you love Italian food? Do you dream about Venice? If you have the opportunity to relocate to Italy or just going there for a short trip, we suggest you some films to discover the country, the Italian culture and, of course, its inhabitants!
The Trip to Italy
If you are a foodie, you will be jealous of Rob and Steve jobs. In this semi-fictional film, the two comedians are sent to Italy on a foodie road trip. From north to south, they discover the whole peninsula, its culinary traditions as well as the Italian way of life. Of course, always with a pinch of humor!
Under the Tuscan Sun
Florence, Siena, Pisa… All these must-see places in Italy have something in common: They are located in Tuscany region, the region where this film takes place. With the breath-taking Tuscan landscapes as background, this film tells the story of an American woman, who decides to leave, first, her husband, and then, the Italian tour she is doing, to settle in the small village of Cortona. There, she will get in touch with some interesting people, who will help her decide that Cortona is the right place to be.
If you are a fan of the classics, then Roman holiday will not disappoint you. Starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, the movie tells the adventures of a princess and an expat American journalist during a day in Rome. It is a good opportunity to discover the most important attractions in Rome… in black and white!
