Stephanie (bluejeanbaby) wrote in bookish,


About a year ago I read the book "Eat, Pray, Love" because I was kind of going through something similar to a divorce. One of the things I really enjoyed was Elizabeth Gilbert's descriptions of what Italy is like and the people she met. So this got me wondering does anyone know if there are any other books out there where someone traveled to Italy and they wrote about it the way Elizabeth Gilbert did. Not so much a travel guide but there impressions and discussions of what they saw and what the Italians were like? I'd appreciate any suggestions.
