Do you enjoy reading? If so, these 8 books set in Italy will warm your heart this winter

I enjoy reading books. I also enjoy traveling. Italy is my favourite destination in Europe. It is for this reason I have compiled 8 books set in different parts of Italy for you to enjoy this winter.

Here we go…

  1. Under the Tuscan Sun: Frances Mayers. This is a beautiful story about loss and second chances- a story about how a divorcee found love, laughter, and romance in Tuscany.


2. Beautiful Ruins: Jess Walton

This is my absolute favourite. It is a beautifully crafted and compelling book.

3. Midnight In Sicily: Peter Robb

This is definitely a book you will want to read, especially if you love Italy, its rich food, art, and politics. It is powerful.

4. Letters from Palazzo Barbaro: Henry James


A beautiful collection of letters which gives an equally beautiful and vivid insight into life in Venice.

5. The Stranger’s Child: Alan Hollinghurst


This is an interesting read. It is a moving and cleverly written novel that will leave you wanting more. I highly recommend it.

6. Tender Is The Night: F. Scott Fitzerald


Although somewhat tedious, this book is packed of promises. A good read.

7. The Talented Mr Ripley: Patricia Highsmith

A popular and beautifully written book. I watched the movie too. I love movies with Matt Damon in it. That’s just me.

8. Romeo and Juliet: Ernest Hemingway

Ahh- the old classic! I will never get tired of Romeo and Juliet. Who doesn’t know the story of Romeo and Juliet?

A brilliant read any time!
