Here’s a round-up of the latest Italy travel news and information for January 5 through January 23:
"Ancient scrolls that were burned black and buried in ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly two thousand years ago have begun to give up their secrets. Researchers in Italy used a powerful x-ray procedure to read out the first words from two of the Roman scrolls, which belong to the only library to have survived from the ancient world."
Some of you may know that years ago I co-hosted an Italy podcast called "Eye on Italy." Well, we're back, & our new episode is an interview with the photographer behind the "Dream of Venice" book – Charles Christopher.
I loved his story of falling in love with a Venice bridge at the age of 14, & you will never guess what city he says is a lot like Venice.
I hope you enjoy this episode – if you didn't listen to Eye on Italy before, there are 57 other episodes in the archives to catch up on! And don't forget to subscribe via iTunes or your podcast player so you'll get new ones automatically.
