Planning for Italy and France in September
It was my great good fortune to win first choice in the 2006 Slow Travel contest. We had a very difficult time selecting our prize, but we eventually decided on this apartment in Trastevere in Rome in September 2007. One of the attractions of this prize is that it would allow us to offer a chance to see Rome to 2 of our 4 children. Our 2 sons, Steve and Brad, took us up on the offer.
Since then our travel plans for next month have expanded to include 10 days in Rome, 2 days on Capri, 2 days in Paris and 10 days in Provence. We are re-visiting all of our destinations. We were last in Paris in October 2006, Provence in 2005 and Rome and Capri in 1976. Our sons will be with us for the first 2 weeks (Rome-Capri--Paris), before they have to return to work back home to Canada. Here is an outline of our itinerary:
