1.Name and what do you do at Select Italy?
Ciao! My name is Mauro and I am an intern in the Chicago office.
2. What’s your favorite Italian destination?
Impossible to not say Rome, of course, but I love Sardinia too: wonderful seaside, friendly people, and very good food. Also, that region is very different from all the rest of Italy.
3. Whom would you go there with?
I would definitely go there with my friends, that is a perfect summer destination since you can find the best for every kind of vacation you want: fun, relax, nature, food and culture. All in the same place.
4. Which 3 things should never be missing from one’s luggage when traveling to Italy?
Even if you can speak basic Italian, I would suggest to bring a dictionary. Only a few Italians know English and I think that to exploit 100% of this wonderful country you should be able to communicate in a perfect way; you will see that every Italian you meet will be glad to let you find and enjoy everything you want to see. Of course a good camera is recommended! Getting addicted to taking pictures everywhere is the rule. Lastly, a very practical recommendation: you will not be able to pay by credit cards and to get wifi internet everywhere you go, so prepare yourself and you won’t have problems.
5. What Italian food are you addicted to?
I am addicted to spaghetti allo scoglio bianco and also to tiramisu. I will be never full of that.

If you will be there during the flowering period (June), don’t miss the amazing view of Piana di castelluccio: priceless!!! If you are not sure yet, just Google it for some photos and you will see that it is impossible to resist.
