Rachel Vermiglio Smith
Rachel is an Arizona-born, wanderer at heart who eventually settled down to live the pasta-eating dream in Florence, Italy. Since 2014, she has been working as an Italian culture decoder, writing articles and consulting on all things Italian. When not exploring new restaurants or geeking out over art history, she can be found strolling the Arno river with her bilingual California rescue dog, Stella.
The time has come: you’re finally on your way to Italy. You’ve been dreaming about this trip for months and know you just need to know how not to stand out like a tourist!
