Best-selling author Frances Mayes tells us about her favorite uncrowded corners of Italy, away from the crush of Italy's top tourist destinations. And we'll get a personal take on the current political scene in Hungary, Poland, and Turkey, where conservative populism has changed and challenged these countries' democratic structures.

  • Beata McCommas, tour guide from Poland
  • Yaren Türkoğlu, tour guide from Turkey
