With 2020 having limited travel opportunities, planning is now underway for 2021.
We expect our Spring travels to be local. Too much uncertainty with the state of COVID-19 here and around the world.
But we are going to make a heroic attempt to get to Italy in the fall. We will fly from Vancouver to Paris on Air France, and then from Paris to Rome. We will pickup our car and spend the next two weeks in different areas of Lazio and Umbria.
First, near Lago Bolsena. Lake Bolsena is located in what is known as the Alta Tuscia. Tuscia reflects the Etruria history and culture. Tusci is plural for the Etruscans.
The town of Bolsena is one of the most scenic towns in the area. Tree-line lakefront complete with a medieval centre. There is also the town of Montefiascone, oneof the largst villages on the lake. It includes the Rocca dei Papi and the belvedere for great views. The Renaissance Cathedral of anta Margherita and the San Flaviano Church are noted churches to see. The town of Marta is on the southern shores of the Lake and faces the Martana Island. Great historic centre, port with fishing boats.
We will end the trip with some time in Rome.
