Really, it depends on the season. I don’t want to go to Russia in the winter or Thailand in monsoon season, so if I had to pick one holiday, I’d say Italy. I’d fly into the North, make my way down the coast, and back up the other one. The goal would be to spend time in some cities viewing art and architecture, taking in the history and culture, eating in some fine dining establishments, and enjoying the nightlife. Then I’d head to some smaller towns and villages to get my hands dirty — check out farming and wine making, meat and cheese curing, hanging out with local craftsmen and eating in local taverns. Then, I’d work the coasts to visit all of the different fishing villages — sampling fish from local waters and some local wine.
