Subject: Re: Northeast Italy - advice, please
Hi Carol,

If you are looking for a city I'd agree to Ira about Padua, if you are looking for a medium size and quite city I'd suggest Trento. Trento is linked by train to Verona, Milan and Venice. It is a trully nice city with a pedestrian city centre with a nice cathedral and a well preserved Castle (nowadays museum). Moreover it is at the feet of Dolomites.

Ciao, Marco in Milan - Italy.
