Subject: Re: First European Trip

Wow, that's a daunting task! Europe in two weeks! But given the time of year, it is probably best to stay closer to the south. Although overrun with tourists and pretty expensive, Italy is a magical place that embodies the spirit of Europe: history, art, fantastic food and a magnificent coastline. The advantage of the almost too well-developed tourist industry is... well... a well-developed tourist industry! It will be easy to get around and find great places to stay.
