The Italian Summer: Golf, Food and Family at Lake Como by Roland Merullo

Leave a comment

I love every type of travel essay that is out there, particularly ones that take place in western Europe. When I saw the title of this book, I thought to myself that I had never read a book about golf before but if it takes place in Italy, I’m game.

Roland Merullo is one lucky guy–he gets to spend his summer golfing at premier golf resorts, dining alfresco at marvelous restaurants tucked deep into the mountains and spend time with his wife and young daughters. As a late in life golf enthusiastic who turned his passion into a writing career, he brings wit and humor to not just his golfing adventures but to those with his family and new friends.

Admittedly, I know nothing about golfing so I thought I would skip those chapters but I found myself reading and enjoying them anyway.

If you’re looking for a different twist on the American living in Italy story, give this one a shot.
