We live in Lansing Michigan,USA. I am Italian and my husband is Dutch and Greek. My Mom was born in St. Ippolito, Italy and my Dad's parents were from there also, so we are hoping to visit the area. We both were schoolteachers for 30 some years and are now retired. We like to sightsee,learn the history of the areas we visit, talk with the people, walk, eat at good restaurants, drink a little vino, bike ride, mingle with the locals, enjoy music, art and a good fun time. We toured Italy last summer and before we begin our stay with you we will visit Paris for 5 days and do a ten day tour in Spain. After we leave you we are going to Sicily for a week. We have 2 grown boys and 3 granchildren. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. We are a very close family. Family is important. Oh, and we are Catholic.
