Bonjour, Ola, Hallo, Ahoj, Dia Dhuit, Buongiorno…

I’m Kathy McCabe

The founder of Dream of Italy, the website and magazine, and host and executive producer of the hit PBS travel series, Dream of Italy.

Even before I was dreaming of Italy, I was dreaming of Europe

I first stepped foot on the continent at the age of 10 on a family trip to London and I have been enchanted by this continent ever since. I even have a B.S.F.S. in European Studies from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, where I also gained fluency in French.

I always say France was my first love, before Italy stole me away.

Well, I’m going back to my first love for the very first episode of my new PBS series Dream of Europe! We will be filming in Annecy and Talloires in the French Alps where I lived and studied for a summer when I was 18.

Then we are off to FIVE MORE European destinations in the coming months to film the entire season which will premiere on PBS stations in Fall 2024.

I don’t want you to miss a thing as we share behind-the-scenes stories from our travels and build out this website with European travel tips and deals.
