The Jersey Shore Does Florence, We Hope You Do Too…

So the Jersey Shore does Florence! We thought we’d let the Jersey Shore Season Four get off the ground before commenting on what it’s like seeing this group on the ultimate Italy vacation. As it turns out, last week’s season debut got the highest ratings ever. We know part of the reason is that the show was shot in Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the most beautiful country in the world!

When the news breaks, the Internet is going to go insane with reaction! Tour Italy Now will be on top of it, of course. We hope you’ll chime in. For starters, what do you think about the idea of doing a season in Italy? To give you a sense of the first round of reaction, here’s a piece that ran on the Wall Street Journal’s blog. (Talk […]
