The Travel Diaries with Holly Rubenstein

We frequently feature and support Holly Rubenstein’s, podcast series, The Travel Diaries. Holly’s passion for travel and special guest interviews mean Italy is fondly discussed in many episodes.  

Season 8 kicks off with The Hairy Bikers as they pick Southern Italy, Calabria and Puglia, as their favourite place to eat in the world because of its cucina povera. In a later episode, Wolfgang Puck chooses Sardinia as his all-time favourite destination.  

You can listen to all her episodes here.
