In late September of 2015 I had the absolute pleasure of exploring the wonderful country of Italy with a group of strangers - now friends - on a Rick Steves Europe tour. You may know Steve from his European travel series on public television. What you may not know is that he has a travel company called Rick Steves Europe. Worth checking out! Together we explored the Italian cities of Venice, Florence, Rome and all the countryside in between. Click on the image below to share some of that experience with me.
