Two Adventurous Pensioners Head For Europe

a trip by Chris & Marilyn
From: May 12th 2017
Until: August 8th 2017

Our tour begins in Rome. Once we collect our Eurolease Peugeot we'll explore Southern Italy, including Sicily. Our tour continues by following the eastern coastline to Venice and into the Dolomites. After visiting Northern Italy we cross the border into France for a stay in Burgundy. We are looking forward to a fortnight in the United Kingdom before returning to France. Once we return our car we have a brief stay in Paris and then fly home.
