Enlarging Your World at the Hermitage

A listing of the world's largest museums puts the Louvre in Paris on top with 782,910 square feet of floor place. St. Petersburg’s Hermitage comes in a close second with 719,480 square feet. But if you make the comparison based on the number of art pieces in each collection, you get a different picture. The collection at the Louvre conta...

Paris in the Footsteps of Hemingway

I keep running into Hemingway. On a recent visit to Cuba, I discovered that Hemingway lived in Cuba for 20 years and wrote seven books there, including A Moveable Feast. That was the first Hemingway book I ever read, the first book assigned in my freshman English class, and is still my favorite Hemingway book.

Travel as Inspiration... whatever your "Muse" may be...

Inspiration can be a funny thing. It seems to come to us in as many different ways as there are people to be inspired in the first place. Sometimes, it’s experiencing a great work of art – like, say, gazing transfixed at Rembrandt’s The Night Watch in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam – that does it. Or maybe it's standing in rou...

Scenes from the Seine

Lovers know France best. What romantically inspired traveler has not dreamed of exploring a country where its rivers, like its wines, flow with irresistible invitations to drink in the intoxicating beauty of landmarks, landscapes and lifestyles that reward body, mind and soul.

Coming Home to Italy...
For the First Time

Perhaps because I’m Italian-American (well, half, on my dad’s side) and in the travel field, friends and colleagues have always found it hard to believe that I had never visited Italy, the country that my grandfather Carlo left, on his own, at 17 to make a new life for himself in the United States. But I hadn’t… until just ...

A Mother and Daughter in Paris

My daughter, Isabel, gazes at the Eiffel Tower, all lit up and glittering against the night sky. She’s seventeen, but I’ve never seen this expression on her face before – the look of wonder mixed with joy. The light plays across her face. We stand on the deck of the riverboat on the Seine, arms wrapped around each other, looking u...

One of a very few...

We received this charming photo from the grandparent of a child who had visited the Sistine Chapel on a Tauck after-hours Vatican tour visit with her family. Absorbed in the moment, she is taking in Michelangelo’s magnificent frescoes above, while listening to Tauck’s local guide share their stories. To me, her image portrays what it me...

In Rotterdam, Tweaking a Tauck Trip

I recently joined a Tauck crew charged with working out changes to our Belgium & Holland in Spring river cruise itinerary for the year ahead. A portion of the trip has been “tweaked” to forge a path that is exclusively Tauck: enriching the Lowlands experience to go beyond the major tourist sites, to add more opportunities to experie...
