Hey, I Didn't Know I Could Do That on Vacation!

Cultural travel, it's all the rage. No longer do we have to stand inert in front of the Colosseum in Rome while someone holding an umbrella spouts important facts. We can laugh with a baker in Siena as he displays his big loaf in front of his enormous oven, or drive a vintage Fiat 500 in Florence. We can mountain bike in the Schist Villages of Portugal or drive on a racetrack in Germany.

I was thinking about this as we took a cultural tour of Rome with Eddies Fun, a great way to learn about the Roman way rather than about the emperors who reigned while the  monuments were built.

Vinegar pralines? Well, you can taste them while you're doing all the Things You Didn't Know You Could Do in Germany. I'm drooling over the sausage factory, but maybe that's because it's lunch time.

And if you happen to be in Lyon, France, you can take part in the city's Silk Festival in the last half of November. Afterwards, you can head over to the library, a miniature one of course.

We live in interesting times.

Thanks for the tip!! I’m from Milan and my husband is American. We took one of Eddie’s tours of Rome and it was really fun! We ate great food, saw things that were off the beaten path and felt really safe while doing all of these things that were not in any of the other tours we looked at. Thanks again and we highly recommend Eddie (and the Eddie’s Fun tour Buddies like Jobe!!) for anyone going to Rome. Ciao!
