In between Parma and Ascoli Piceno — two places most U.S. travelers to Italy never visit, maybe never even HEAR of — are two you definitely have:  Florence and Tuscany.  From the far away vantage point of our laptops in San Miguel de Allende, we thought “Why not drive via Florence, stay in a castle outside …

Venice — so magical, so unique, and so out of reach with every room booked for the 2015 Biennale, this year’s of contemporary art. If not for my friend Giulia and her new B&B, we would have skipped it entirely.  Lucky for us, she had four nights available…

A solemn procession that reaches San Miguel de Allende every year on the Sunday before Palm Sunday.

(APRIL 27-19, 2015) Parma, Italy — stingy? Dingy? Heartless? A menace? — nothing could be further from the truth about this elegant, fashionable foodie paradise. We’ll have to forgive Cole Porter for maligning Parma in his attempt to rhyme Venice…
(APRIL 27-19, 2015) Parma, Italy — stingy? Dingy? Heartless? A menace? — nothing could be further from the truth about this elegant, fashionable foodie paradise. We’ll have to forgive Cole Porter for maligning Parma in his attempt to rhyme Venice with…anything. Here’s “We Open in Venice”  the 1953 film version of “Kiss Me Kate”, the …

The last time I was here, it was 1990 and I bought a book I never read called “Red Bologna” because the Communists were in power and I was an organizer. This time, I arrive eight hours before Tejano. Just enough time to roam to the Piazza Maggiore, eat…
