Italian connections by Maggie O'Sullivan

Posted in DESTINATIONS By Maggie O' Sullivan

When I worked at The Telegraph, Italy used to win every readers' travel poll we ever ran. It won everyone else’s awards, too. Plus ça change: this month alone it has scooped Best European Tourist Destination in The Times Group’s Readers’ Travel Awards, as well as Food and Travel Magazine’s Destination of the Year 2015 Award.

But just in case we need reminding quite how fabulous Italy is, the Italian National Tourist Board launched a new promotional video at the Venice Film Festival. The video promotes the country through some of the best films ever made about Italy, and no La Dolce Vita doesn’t feature, though, sadly, neither does my all-time favourite, Roman Holiday. We thought you would enjoy this stroll down cinematic memory lane as much as we did (just ignore the cheesy couple).
