Program 213a: Italy Faux Pas; Tuscany versus Umbria

Release Date: 10-13-2012


Helping to melt the age-old rivalries between two popular regions of Italy, locally-based guides help us take a closer look at Tuscany, and its neighbor Umbria.  They're both classic destinations for exploring Italy’s scenic medieval hill towns and countryside.  And listeners share reports of faux pas and misunderstandings they experienced in Italy, and what they learned from their travels. 


  • Italy-based tour guides Jamie Blair-Gould (from Lucca, in Tuscany) and Cecilia Bottai (from Orvieto, in Umbria)
