Savvy Sightseer Armchair Travel: Scotland with Talk of Outlander
The popular Outlander series is in its fifth season; this program highlights the best of Scottish sights while at the same time visiting scenes that helped make the books and TV series such a hit! We’ll stop in at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Isle of Skye, Stirling, Glencoe, Inverness, and of course Culloden Moor.
Savvy Sightseer Armchair Travel: Paris and Northwest France
We’ll visit the fabulous Palace of Versailles’ little-known enclave of Marie Antoinette – her secluded hamlet. Then we’ll head northwest to Normandy and the historic American Cemetery with its moving tributes to our soldiers. We’ll also journey to an island cathedral with an unusual second purpose before sweeping into the lavish Loire valley for its splendid chateaux and Leonardo da Vinci’s surprising stash.
Savvy Sightseer Armchair Travel: Switzerland
We’ll start in the northern part of the country in Zurich before moving southwest, and on to the French border. We’ll work our way east through Alpine regions. Along the way, we’ll also visit Bern, Geneva, Zermatt (the Matterhorn), Lucerne, St. Moritz, Montreux and Gstaad.
Savvy Sightseer Armchair Travel: Northern Italy
Savvy Sightseer Jeanne Schnupp leads us on a tour of Northern Italy starting in Milan, the capital of Italy’s Lombardy region; then journey to Verona, the home of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. Next we’ll check out the Northern Lakes and cap our tour in the Cinque Terre – dubbed the Italian Riviera.
