Before, you think I have totally gone off the rails, please know that we have spent a great deal of time driving around Italy over the past 20 years. Just back from our favorite stay with Nico at Sant'Antonio, in Montepulciano, and we will be returning next May. We usually try and do one long day trip during our stays. Even drove to Venice and back one time in the same day, so our friends could see it. Otherwise, they would never have a chance to see that wonderful city. So, we are not looking to stop at every town while riding the Ferry, but may make one stop for lunch??? Are we biting off more than we can chew? Actually, I asked Nico, and he told us we could do it, only if we rented a helicopter!!! We lived in the great state of Texas for 30 years, so long drives are a normal.
