The Italian Staycation Experience
Welcome to the beginning of the #MadeinItalyStaycation adventure! In this uncertain time, working indoors and with an end to the travel ban no longer on the 2020 horizon, all we are doing is dreaming of the days when we can finally jet off and see the world. In the meantime, the Made in Italy team has decided to bring the Italian vacation of your dreams, straight to your home! So stay home, and get ready to experience La Dolce Vita without the jetlag.
Every week we will be exploring a new place in our Italian motherland, showing you what to see, do & eat for an immersive experience all from your own home!
Spending so much time inside in this current global climate has driven some of us stir crazy. There is nothing we wouldn’t do to jet set on a plane tomorrow, and experience all the delectable and unique cuisines around the world. Oh, to taste some gooey Margherita pizza whilst looking out at the Colloseo, or slurping up some fettuccine in the Tuscan vineyards.
Fortunately for you, Made in Italy is still open! And with our free delivery and some added extras, you can get that Italian summer holiday right from your home. (Don’t worry, we offer NO CONTACT delivery so you can stay safe during your staycation!).
Don’t know where in Italy you’d rather go? Let us help you plan the perfect Italian experience. Light up some candles, pour the wine, turn on the television and choose your trip:
