As someone who has yet to make it overseas (particularly, to Italy), I made it a point to find Carmen Carbonell, the founder and president of Your Own Italy. As someone who has spent nearly 30 years in Italy, Carmen has - in that time -
developed an incredible passion for Italy - its art, its architecture, its cities, its countryside, its culture and cuisines, and its people. Therefore in our interview together, I piqued her brain about what tourists should prepare for and/or expect as first-time visitors of the country.
I also asked how factors such as increased demand for passports as well as the influence of social media has shaped interest in visiting the country.
