The selection process…
Travelling is about experiencing the best of what a new city can offer and a great place to find inspiration is in blogs. However, it can be a jungle to navigate through the many blogs and content you can find online. Therefore, our team has scoured the internet looking for the best travel blogs in Rome.
The 20 blogs that have made the final list have been selected following a selection according to 4 criteria:
- Quality of the content
- The practicality of the tips and pieces of advice
- Purpose of the blog
In this award, you will find talented photographers, skilled writers, wanderlust addicts, foodies, family travellers, and eco-friendly travellers. Additionally, it is necessary to mention that some websites awarded are not, strictly speaking, travel blogs. However, in every case, the usefulness of their tips or their great content have convinced us to include them.
All 20 blogs have made it as « Best 20 Travel Blogs 2019 » meaning the order is random.

Becky Excell created the blog in 2013. When I was first told it was game over for me and gluten. So I started posting/creating gluten free recipes for all the things I missed eating… and it turned out that loads of other people missed the same kinda things as I did! Since then I’ve dedicated my blog to help make gluten-free people’s lives easier in whatever way I can – with recipes, travel guides or new product finds.
I love to travel and because eating out abroad can be a very stressful experience when you’re gluten free, I always try to create travel guides for my audience whenever I can. Nobody should have to miss out on seeing the world just because of gluten!

The content of his articles would be suitable for any type of traveller interested in stunning landscapes, cultural immersion, exotic food or photography.
Why have you created this blog? : “I enjoy sharing the excitement of adventure travel with others, inspiring them to discover new destinations that may not have been on their radar. To dive deep into the local culture and learn something new about the world we all live in. To help give them the courage to venture outside their comfort zones. The catalyst to start my travel blog was working an unfulfilling job, and feeling a bit lost without a purpose.
In the hopes of injecting some inspiration into my life again, I took a risk by saving some money and quitting my job. Next, I went backpacking through Central America for a year while sharing the journey with family and friends via the blog. But soon other people started to follow along too. And I was having such a good time, that I did everything I could to figure out how to make travel blogging my full-time job.” Matt
