Italy Travel Trends for 2014

While Italy is always a popular destination for travelers, 2014 is shaping up to be a very special year for travel to la bel paese. I’ve been reporting on Italy travel full-time for 11 years in my role as editor of Dream of Italy, and this year I’ve noticed five new Italy travel trends that are giving travelers more ways to experience the magic of Italy. I shared these with The Huffington Post and they turned them into a slide show!

1. The Pope Francis Effect

2. Sharing, Italian-Style

3. Pursuing Italian Citizenship

4. Outdoor Adventure

5. Multi-Generational Trips
