The Story

Young Indy visits Florence, Italy with his parents and tutor, Helen Seymour. Helen gives him lessons in physics, with examples from Galileo and Leonardo da Vinci, and takes him on tours to see the splendors of Renaissance art.
While Indy's father is temporarily away, the family is charmed by the generous attention of Italian opera composer Giacomo Puccini. Indy is at first fascinated by the composer, but then realizes that Puccini's devotion to his mother is more than mere courtesy.

During a visit to Vienna, young Indy meets Princess Sophie at the Spanish Riding School. It's Indy's first encounter with love. Even though he's got advice from the best experts Vienna has to offer on that subject - Freud, Jung, and Adler - he's not prepared for the excitement. He soon finds himself hanging from carriages, scaling walls, risking guard dogs, and avoiding an overprotective governess to be near his beloved Sophie. But Sophie's not only the object of Indy's affections; she is the daughter of the heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the ruler of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
