Yep. It’s going to be…interesting.
She doesn’t find me funny (at all) and we tend to bicker. But we’re going via a tour – an upscale tour that will hopefully spare me from embarrassing Americans asking for embarrassing American things – so there will be other people to hang out with when we get on each other’s nerves. Hopefully Mom will make at least one friend to hang out with when she gets annoyed with me (and so I can sneak away for a nap!).
Our tour has a few meal gaps. While I can certainly Google, I would love to arrive in Italy armed with personal suggestions.
I am looking for place to have:
- One dinner and one lunch in Rome – proximity to Villa Borghese a plus
- Two lunches and two dinners in Florence (circa Palazzo Vecchio or thereabouts)
- One dinner (I think) in Cinque Terre (La Spezia ideally)
- And finally, one lunch and one dinner in Venice
If you’ve been to Italy and recent years, please share your favorites with me in the comments. Ciao!
Unfortunately this trip has been postponed due to the Summer of Suck.
