The following post is a long time in the making and is a non comprehensive and wholly unscientific list of some of the Top Italian Themed Food and Lifestyle Sites and blogs on the web (English language only), at least from our perspective.
Living the Italian life comes so easily to dyed in the wool Italians but is difficult to achieve for us non native Italians born, and living, in other parts of the world.
The sites and blogs below help us experience and live as Italians do through their original content on food, travel, and lifestyle. After all, the next best thing to living as Italians is to experience the Italian life through the lens of people who understand it best!
