Wonderful Italy

Exploring Italy via our travels — places, people, things…


Anne and Keith – Gubbio, May 2017

Hi – this is Keith Chambers.   From 2004 to the present (2020) my wife Anne and I have visited Italy frequently, studied Italian, done some long distance walking, and enjoyed experiencing new places, new thinking, new people, and a wonderfully rich place.

This site is a collection of observations and descriptions of some of our adventures, with photos where we can.   You’ll also find tips here for enjoying Italy when you visit. Hope you will enjoy our sharing.

PHOTO SETS used to accompany many of the entries — these were previoulsy on Picasa, which has recently been discontinued.  We’ll soon post our photos here again — stay tuned…

Background: I am a cultural anthropologist, as is Anne, both of us now retired. We love exploring Italy, especially lesser known areas. A current project is walking some of Italy’s pilgrimage routes. We stay in pilgrim accommodations when we can and enjoy meeting fellow pilgrims and also those who maintain the accommodations. This is slow discovery, but oh so rewarding…
