Give Your Feet a Break

On my last tour to Europe, I logged quite a few miles on the ground.  The difference this time is that my feet did not hurt at the end of the first day, second day, and all the way to the last day of our trip.  Take a look at my recommendations for the best travel shoes for women, and the best travel shoes for men.  Grab a pair for your next tour to Europe.

Best Travel Shoes for Women:  After Linda heard me telling her about what it was like to walk on a cloud, she jumped on the bandwagon and got herself a pair of the best travel shoes for women she has ever worn.  Her sense of style is much better than mine and she opted for the any of the Skechers "Breath Easy" line like the Skechers Womens Moneybags Sneaker.  They come in 5 colors, are light, and can take a full day in any city on a tour to Europe.  In Rome, Linda gives them a "thumbs up" as the best travel shoes for women.

Best Travel Shoes for Men:  I purchased the Skechers Performance Go Run 400 for my last tour to Europe.  We walked over flat terrain, cobblestone, up and down stairs.  My feet felt great at the end of the day.  They are extremely light and have a nice cushy feel.  I would not recommend them for hiking up Machu Picchu, but for touring the cities of Europe, they are perfect.  They are not the most stylish shoes I have ever had, but for me, they are the best travel shoes for men I have ever worn.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

5 Places to Eat in Florence Italy

Flying Premium Economy

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.

We introduced our Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast cruise with a preview tour in October 2017.  Since then, we have taken many travelers on our 30-person small ship luxury charter on 4 subsequent tours, including 2 this past August.
