Subject: Short Italy trip suggestions
You might want to consider the island of Elba for at least part of the trip. Warm, sunny, beautiful water, a variety of beaches, good food, some history (Napoleon, etc.), nice people and great people watching. Seemed like the only people who have discovered it are the Italians and the Germans. I honestly think my wife and I were the only people on the island who's native tongue was English. Never heard a word of English from anyone else in four days. It was a great experience. --Mark
