Margie has been dreaming for many years of taking her beloved twin granddaughters, Emily and Kate, to Italy. Finally, her dream comes true. Margie, Emily, and Kate go on a much-anticipated vacation from Florida to Rome, Italy. Besides Rome, their trip includes Sorrento and Venice, with stops on the Amalfi Coast, Capri, and Verona. Margie wants to make these two weeks away from home unforgettable for the girls. They take a Vespa tour and visit a famous cat sanctuary, the Torre Argentina, in Rome, attend a gelato-making class in Sorrento, and make masks in Venice. Margie knows how to engage with these eighteen-year-olds and shares many tips regarding safe and quality travel abroad. Italy at Eighteen by Margie Miklas is an informative read for fans of travel books and an uplifting story for memoir lovers.

Margie Miklas writes Italy at Eighteen with great love for her granddaughters, Emily and Kate. Their close relationship and care for each other are heartening and add many positive notes to the compelling narrative. We get to know Kate and Emily, two amazing eighteen-year-olds. They are compassionate toward stray animals and open to new experiences when visiting Europe for the first time. Margie is always by their side, lovingly guiding them in this new environment. The author knows Italy very well. Those of us who have never been to this European country will benefit from Margie's detailed account of their trip. The author tells us about the importance of being adaptable while preparing for a trip abroad. She urges us to be patient when we are rescheduling tours or reservations. Everything is possible for a determined traveler with an open heart. I appreciated Margie's practical recommendations and vivid descriptions of the places she and her granddaughters visited in beautiful Italy.
