Take a holiday to Mona Lisa's backyard on this week's Travel with Rick Steves. We'll examine the enormous appeal of  Italy's Tuscany region, and its quieter neighbor Umbria.   Rick chats with Cecelia Bottai (cha-CHEE-lia  bo-TYE), a winemaker from Orvieto (or-vee-AY-to), about how visitors can experience  authentic local culture in central Italy's hilltowns and estates.   We'll also hear another round of listener haiku poems.   Grab  a glass of Orvieto classico and a seat on the plaza as we talk about Tuscany and Umbria on the next Travel with Rick Steves.
