Inside Perspective of Lesser Known Places
I love off the beaten path places. These ladies do a great job of identifying cool spots in Italy. I look forward to listening each week. My travel plans change with each new location. It’s also fun to hear about the real Italian culture not the stereotypes. I can’t wait to visit again!
My family is from Bedonia/Tornolo and I have been over the mountain pass that Valerie was mentioning many times, always getting out of the car with a very bad headache, even though my cousins drove slow!
When the road does open up, the views are magnificent and then you arrive at the beautiful Riviera. Well worth the headache. Enjoy your podcast very much!!
