ROME (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright arrived in Italy Sunday on the first leg of her whirlwind diplomatic trip overseas.
During the 11-day trip, Albright is to tour nine nations, including France and Russia.
The trip, which the newly confirmed secretary has dubbed "The Albright Express," will largely focus on European security issues, especially NATO's plans to expand into Eastern Europe.
