Now that we've arrived in Rome, I'm so glad I strolled through this book last month to revive my memories of previous trips to Italy. Although hubbie and I don't have time on this cruise to spend a lot of time strolling, we will have two days - one in Rome and one in Florence to see sights we missed on previous visits. This little treasure is a perfect starter for someone who has never visited this glorious country, who wants to get a feeling of life as it can be in the land of gelato, Michaelangelo, Dante, domes, fountains, and vespas. I don't think anyone can ever see it all, but the Husaks give us a sweet picture, wonderful suggestions, and re-engender the urge to do Italy over and over and over and over. I hope to post pictures of our passeggiata later tonight.
