Rebecca Winke


Rebecca has written for various Italy-focused digital and print publications, including Dream of Italy and Italy Magazine, as well as DK Eyewitness travel guides.

She is now the Rome travel and hospitality expert for The Telegraph Travel and provides insider intel for Italy aficionados on members-only luxury travel platforms.


Rebecca’s first visit to Italy was a coup de foudre and her affection for Il Bel Paese has only grown over almost 30 years of living here, during which time she has mastered the art of navigating the sampietrini cobblestones in heels but has yet to come away from a plate of bucatini all’amatriciana with an unsullied blouse. She loves A-list sights like Rome and the Amalfi Coast but also little-known wonders including Umbria and Abruzzo.

On the bucket list

To get lost in the souks in Marrakech, catch the Northern Lights over Lapland, light a lantern in Hoi An, and fly over the Nazca Lines in Peru.
