Dick Wilkin asked Frances Mayes:

My wife and I visited Italy and fell in love with culture. Part of our inspiration to visit were your books. We are planning to walk the Via Francigena. What would you suggest we see or try to grasp about the country while we are there? If you had to list one thing about Italy that people have to "get," what would it be?

Frances Mayes That's easy. Just relax and enjoy. Take the off road. Read some poetry. Eat what you don't usually eat. Drink copious local vino!! Just "get it" that there's a sensuous, easy, spontaneous day ahead of you!!!
