Going deeper underground: subway stations that will make you think “wow that’s a really cool subway station!”
Taking the subway’s not usually a memorable experience, unless it’s for the wrong reasons: The dawning horror that you’ve taken the wrong train and getting to the airport in time is now a beautiful distant dream. The realisation that unless you’re a high-level cryptographer you’re not going to decipher the labyrinthine map and find your destination. The unforgettable experience of being smushed up against someone’s armpit in an oven-like carriage; someone who sees showering as a suggestion rather than a necessity.

“Why would you travel through Italy on an organised trip Jane? Europe is EASY”, several friends decried. “We can tell you some great places to go, and you are an experienced traveller.” Well, yes there is truth in that. But I booked on to Intrepid’s “Best of Italy” small group adventure regardless.
