What do you love about Italy?

The food! And the red wine. Above all, the people. They’re the friendliest and most welcoming people I have ever met.


Describe you favourite memory of a trip to Italy
Going to La Fenice in Venice to see La Traviata – an amazing experience. It was my first time seeing an opera, as well!


What’s your favourite Italian dish?
It has to be pizza with prosciutto, rocket, gran Milano cheese and olio picante (hot oil). I can never go wrong with that!

Another strong contender is tiramisu gelato...


What ‘hidden gems’ can you recommend?
Cantina Follie in Tremezzo, Lake Como – beautiful food and beautiful wine! 


Have you ever lived in Italy?
Yes – in Lake Como and Venice. I fell in love with them both the moment I went there. Lake Como was the most beautiful place I’d seen (and it was also quite nice to live down the road from George Clooney!).


Any favourite hotels?
The Danieli in Venice – a great place to go for sunset drinks with amazing views of Venice from the rooftop bar.
