Passeggiata, Strolling Through Italy

Passeggiata: Strolling Through Italy
By-G.G. Husak
355 pages

The very name of this book makes one want to pack their bags and fly off to romantic Italy.

This book, Ms. Husak's travel memoir, will appeal to those of us who are retired; single and longing for a little adventure; or taking that dream, family vacation. It takes the reader to major tourist centers, and out of the way, tiny Italian villages. It takes the guesswork out of travel and teaches valuable lessons that will make the journey easier and more relaxing.

Whether you want to stay in a quiet village, or take in all the historic sights and art of Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, or Naples you will not want to leave home before reading Ms. Husak's book.

Some chapters which are included are:
*Culture Shock
*On Our Own
*The Italian Riviera
*Hill Towns
*and much, much more

Even if you don't have the means to actually travel to Italy, you will want to use this as an exciting armchair travelogue.

This book is well written and is sure to please the world travel reader.


  1. Oh...We're off to Italy the end of August...I must get this book ---thanks for pointing it out.

  2. Tina- Oh, I do envy you! What a fun place to visit. I'm hoping you have a wonderful and safe trip.

  3. I had no idea that you had so many blogs. Travel memoirs are another category of favorite reads for me, especially if they are about Italy. I doubt if I'll ever get there, thus my specialization in armchair traveling. Thanks for the book review.
