Rick delves deep into the Italian heartland - the place where la dolce vita is a way of life. Starting in Umbria, he connects with rustic, traditional culture. Then he tours Assisi, with its inspirational story of St. Francis and its awe-inspiring basilica. In Siena, Rick enjoys a front-row seat at its wild horse race - the venerable Palio - and marvels at cultural treasures from the city's glory days. He finishes with the ultimate Riviera getaway: the Cinque Terre, where he gets to know each of the "five lands."
