Subject: Re: Drive from Zurich to Florence
Dear Ira,

Thanks for your suggestions for flying into Forence or Pisa.

The reason that we have chosen Milan is because both Swiss Air & Alitalia have no direct flights from Zurich to either Florence or Pisa. Alitalia gives me the choice of Rome or Milan first and Swiss Air offers me Zurich to Boston, Boston to Charlotte NC and Charlotte to Florence - believe it or not. Since I am not the most relaxed flyer, two planes in one day is enough for me. We have driven to & from Milan many times.

However, we thought that we would take this opportunity to see a bit of Switzerland on this trip, although, like you, we are passionate about Florence & Tuscany in general and cannot wait to return.
