People to thank and blanks to fill in - Italy trip soon....a bit of panic

Jump to last reply

Thanks to Jean, PalenQ, Bob the Navigator, LowCountryIslander, Moremiles and Taconictravler and others I know I missed.

before we start our Italy adventure. I still have some gaps to fill in and perhaps your experiences will help me. I know I actually have a lot of gaps. I have had to make a huge business trip over to remote area so some of the research I intended to do has gotten put aside so I am hoping you can understand my compiling.

I am not too worried about the Tuscany part of this, as long as we have a list of towns to see. I am more anxious about Florence and Rome and only having 1 ½ days in Florence and two days in Rome. Not much time to see these cities but if you have some high points that could make it easier on us. Shopping there has to be some shopping, have those handbags and oils on a list from LowCountryIslander ☺

First stop is Dubai for one evening (thanks Moremiles, we are taking your advice and staying at the Park Hyatt)
Dinner at Tagine Restaurant one of my favorites
