Subject: Re: Italy in April
Hello Ziners and John,

First, I would suggest that you plan to fly into Milan and out of Rome. This is very possible and gives you extra time because you do not have to back track. I did this in 2002.

For location near to all the biggies in Florence, I suggest the Hotel Cascio, very reasonable and great people running it. I plan to stay here again. In Rome I suggest the Hotel Parlamento, again very, very well located and reasonable for the location. Both have websites you can check.

I will be making my ninth trip to Italy this April and May so if you have any other questions, I would be glad to answer what I can. I have never driven so I can't help you there.

Have a great trip! Joan Schmelzle
