Have you ever followed a Rabbit Trail? Say you started something only to be distracted by something else, then some other thing, etc, until you notice hours have gone by and you never finished what you had started in the first place. I know it sounds like attention-deficit (or even senility) but it happens to all of us. So what if you had a month to explore Italy? There is so much to see (and eat and drink…) you gotta have a plan. Here’s ours… We picked Sicily this time around and because the airfair was significant we decided why not get 2 trips for the price of one air ticket and added Southern Italy. We explored Northern Italy 2 years ago and fell in love with the culture, the scenery, the people, and of course the food and wine. As you can imagine, this is going to be a trip of a lifetime. With the 2 Rick Steves tours we have some structure – they get us to the good spots, the “must see” places in each area plus we get plenty of time to follow our own Rabbit Trail.
