Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Continuing his journey through Italy in this ninth episode of Travels in Europe, Rick Steves guides his "vagabuddies" to the most attractive sites along the Italian riviera. A visit to the Leaning Tower of Piza is followed by a stopover at the ancient walls of Lucca. After spending quality time in the resort town of Portfino, Rick goes through the Cinqueterra -- five isolated Riviera villages where time has virtually stood still for centuries. And for the benefit of those who've never travelled abroad, the host provides useful laundry, health, and hygiene tips.
