Frances Mayes Always Italy (Hardcover)
We will want to return to Italy or visit if for the first time as soon as we can. Italy will need us and Frances has written the guide that will help us plan the trip now. In this richly illustrated guide (published by National Geographic!) Frances and Ondine Cohane travel the entire country and find the interesting and out of the way spots as well as the can't miss treasures of Italy. They include very practical information about what to see and do; where to stay, where to eat, and they introduce us to interesting people. It is the perfect book to dream with right now.
Frances was scheduled to talk with us about this book in person but now that plans have changed she has sent signed book plates that will be available with every book. And just maybe she'll get to come see us in the fall!— Rene
