About Us

Dennis & Dee

There are two people in every relationship:

Partner 1 (Dee): “Okay, I have our passports, boarding passes, itinerary, euros, travel accommodations, first aid kit, etc.”

Partner 2 (Dennis): “Where are we going again?”

Why did we pick Italy? The history, the culture, a book, a bottle of wine, and the tease of “a deposit now and pay the rest later.”

5 Reasons we chose Rick Steves:

Who knew in less than a year we would be walking through the streets of Italy enjoying amazing history…plus a few aperol spritzes and many glasses of vino.

On to Venice…

After the Rick Steves Tour we chose to extend our vacation a few days…
