Home to some of the sleekiest supercars in the world, a visit to Italy’s Motor Valley is a must when in the country’s northern region.

From Donna:

Yesterday, Alan and I were reminiscing about our trips to Italy. We so enjoyed traveling with Claudio, our favorite Italian guide, before riding a ship back across the Atlantic from Rome. It truly is the best of two worlds—fascinating land journey combined with a relaxing Transatlantic cruise to Ft. Lauderdale. Maybe it’s time to plan another one. Should we?

From Nicole:

This month, we’re taking Italy travel. Personally, Italy is my favorite place to explore in Europe. Right when I was out of college, I took a trip to Rome and then, went down to the south, and back up to the north, all thanks to the country’s fast train network. It really is so easy to get around.

I have to say that although Rome and Tuscany are without a doubt worth seeing a few times over, the island of Sardinia is my all-time favorite Italian destination. It’s just so beautiful and traditional, and the people are incredibly kind. Alan and Donna stopped there a few years ago on a cruise excursion on a Silversea  Transatlantic cruise. Read all about their experience visiting the ancient city of Nora.
