If you’ve ever been to Italy, you probably know what a passeggiata is…the Italian ritual of taking an early evening walk. Author G.G. Husak has written a book entitled Passeggiata: Strolling Through Italy about the annual pilgrimages she and her husband began to take to Italy once they became empty-nesters. You can WIN ONE OF THREE COPIES by telling us about your favorite walk in Italy!

Wandering together along out of the way paths in tiny hill towns and seacoast villages, Husak and her husband explore breathtaking scenery. By traveling light and learning the vagaries of Italian life, they have become Italian in spirit. The book provides many practical hints on how to travel like the locals, reminding us that even novice travelers can learn valuable lessons from immersion in another way of life, and that one’s companion can be an essential part of the pleasure of a journey.
