About the Book

Anyone interested in travel will enjoy this easy-reading tale of a month in a small seaside town in Northern Italy. The writer and her sister-in-law, both recently retired educators, take an unforgettable trip in September of 2001 to Italy and experience the endless hospitality of an extended (aren't they all) Italian family, their friends and others. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 strike the first week they are there, but despite this the trip continues to Rome, Venice, Florence and Pisa. Travel with them on the trains, buses, and water-taxis as they see the sights, struggle through the language and have an unforgettable month among their amici!
