Come along with us as we relive our trip to Italy, full of wonder and surprises. Andiamo!
First, though, you might wonder what’s so good about The Best of South Italy in 13 Days tour. Sure, you’ve heard of Rome and Naples and Sorrento, but you’re also seeing names of places you’ve never heard of, like Vieste. Why should you go there? And Matera? What’s that? Well, if you’ve seen Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion of the Christ, you’ve “seen” Matera. But, ahhh…just wait until you experience it! Our first tour was The Best of Europe in 21 Days where we saw places we’ve always dreamed of seeing. On this tour, we saw more of those, but we also saw so many places that we never dreamed existed. What a great combination!



"So," you ask, "what's it really like to be on a Rick Steves' tour?"






You’ve looked at the web site, maybe read the brochure, but that’s just advertising. You want to know the truth. Well, now that we’re veterans of not one, but two, Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door tours, we feel well qualified to tell you what you can expect and what you can’t expect.

We invite you to come along with us on our tour of The Best of South Italy in 13 Days, and we’ll give you the scoop, the whole scoop, and nothing but the scoop as well as some valuable travel tips along the way. Then you can decide for yourself whether a Rick Steves tour is right for you. Don’t want to wait to get the scoop?
