Of all the journeys we have ever taken, those romantic vacations to Italy still linger in my mind and heart, resonating magic into my everyday life for months if not years after the fact. Italy’s long and enduring past, her extraordinary history stretching back into antiquity, her volatile geology which in turn has created her dramatic geography, all combine to make Italy a kingdom of storybook landscapes, always ready to be discovered and celebrated anew by this year’s crop of avid t
ourists. In case you will be among them (the avid tourists, that is) in the coming months, and because it’s rude to show up unprepared and uninformed, here’s a little background and history on one of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations.
