Listen to “Listener Q&A Vol 2. – Driving tips, what to eat in Florence and beyond, travel update and more” on Spreaker.




Italy trip planning Q&A. Our 3td Untold Italy listener Q&A episode. Answering your tough questions was so much fun the first time we did it so we decided to do it again. This time the topics range from driving, to what foods to try and where to try them. Plus we reveal our favorite city to visit with kids and give a quick update on the ever-changing situation in Italy.

Show notes
Our call out for questions resulted in a huge number of queries sent in via email and our online community – come along and join us there if you haven’t already. We really love answering them on the podcast because we can give a much more in depth answer than what can be achieved in a few lines of text.

This time we had practical questions about driving, tollways and parking as well as questions about food to try including a section on the famous Florentine steak – Bistecca Fiorentina. We also cover some questions on travel style, for those traveling with their family and women visiting Italy on solo trips.

Thanks to everyone who wrote in with their questions. We can’t wait to do more of these sessions, so stay tuned for more Q & A and Italy travel inspiration in the weeks to come.
