Chris Atwood - Communications and Education Specialist for See Italy Travel

Born and raised in Boston, Chris lived in places far and near, New York, Bologna, San Francisco, Rome, Chicago, and Florence.
What thrills him about travel is the chance to live — however briefly — in someone else’s world, to taste what locals eat, to traipse down well-walked streets and to grasp how others make sense of the people and places around them.
Chris joined See Italy Travel because he wanted to share his Italy with others. He first went to Italy in 2001. More than a decade later, the warmth and the beauty that he glimpsed there still draws me back. This is the Italy he wants to share, an Italy defined not just by monuments and museums but by moments forged together: the slow passeggiata through town or the meal where strangers become co-travelers. An Italy made up of people and not simply sights to see.
