, a 6-piece travel TV series airing in the US on PBS and sponsored by Viator, showcases a handful of destinations that are sure to make any trip to this colorful nation a memorable one.
Host Kathy McCabe takes viewers through the very best of Italy's offerings, from Tuscany's olive groves and vineyards to the trulli houses in Puglia. Viewers will also get whisked off to Umbria for a university visit, stained-glass artwork, handmade textiles, and rich local chocolates. In Rome, Kathy explores lesser-known sites focusing on rich food—a feast for the eyes and taste buds. The episode in Naples and the Amalfi Coast features rocky coasts, cobalt blue waters, and green foliage, as well as visits to the infamous Mt. Vesuvius and picturesque Tenuta San Francesco. The series finishes off with a trip to Piedmont and Lake Iseo, a region of distinct wines, white truffles, and luxury spas set in 16th-century palace ruins.
From hearty, homemade meals to ancient architecture and priceless works of art, Dream of Italy highlights Italy's most charming destinations so you can go from dreaming of Italy on the couch to packing your bags and hopping on a plane.
