Well for all the week between the 14 to 19 March I'll be in Bologna to exhibit and I'll be back very tired. :(( So, if you'll be free, we could have a dinner Tuesday or Wednesday. Before you leave please tell me which kind of food you'd love more to have.

Oh, what a small world!!!! I grew up in Milano and I'm in Torino because of my work, but it's been a long time now.

Well, in Italy I'd suggest you the Hertz. You can check a prepaid rate, or, if you want, I can check for you the price taking it from here (in this case, pls. tell me which car would you prefer). Are you sure you want to drive in Italy??? ;-))

I guess that with the Euro so down, you'll have good rates in Italy. But.... the gasoline is very expensive. Around Lit. 2.000 per one liter.

> If you are so kind e mail me your phone number and when is the best time

Well, Torino is a very small town and there are many hotels in the central area. You can check the Travelogue of Don and Linda, to see how they were here in Torino. Please, tell me what kind of hotel (3 or 4 or 5 stars) would you like and I'll check something for you, if you want.

Oh, I'll email soon my phone number, but.... be patient when calling me since my english knowledge is not so good and the worst is speaking by phone!!! :((

Ciao Simona, Torino, Italy
