Italy’s Weirdest Legends (Part 2)

Italian Flag bar

In this episode of Italy Made Easy Podcast we are going to talk about Italian legends. We’ll discover the curious stories that someone at some point in time invented in an attempt to explain certain customs and traditions whose true origins have been lost over time.

The particular legends we talk about in this episode are set in the mountains of Italy. Hopefully, none of you get too scared to go and visit the Italian mountains after this! Nonetheless, I’m sure that you will understand the moral of these legends. You have nothing to fear if you explore nature with good intentions, respecting the animals who live there.

Oops! I hope I didn’t give too much away! Well, you'll just have to listen to the whole episode!
