Hope to see you in Italy!!

Too bad Jen..We are going in the same places but in different dates.
I leave Capri the 8th and depart Rome for Nice the 11th.
Have a safe trip,
Buon Viaggio..

Hi Jen. Our route is reverse of yours. We're going to Tuscany first then, Positano. We'll be there for 3 nights from Sept. 9-11. I'd enjoy having a GTG and maybe the other 3 ladies I'll be with might want to come. Keep me posted.

We (my new bride and I) will be in Positano Sept 5 - 11 and Rome 12 - 15.

Look for us...we will be the couple that
- Keeps looking at the strange money
- Wears shorts (god forbid)
- Wonders why you get vegetables after your meat dish
- Can't understand how wine is cheaper than Coke.
- Thinks it is cool that breakfast consists of lunch meat.

LindaL, we could start with a tentative plan for drinks, say at the American bar at Buca di Bacco in Positano?

Hi!
I'll be in Rome both days you're there. The 'drink' idea sounds great...although I'm not sure about the American bar (I'm Canadian).

Rachopickle, the American bar is in Positano so no worries . Which days in Rome - the 6/7 or 17/18? We can definitely meet up for drinks, let me know which day is best and I will see what our schedule looks like.

I'll be in Rome from September 11th til the 19th (departing the morning of the 19th), staying as usual at the Hotel San Carlo. (From Sept 6th til the morning of the 11th, I'll be on Capri.)

Last time I was in Rome, I had the delightful fortune of meeting up with the beautiful and charming kismetchiara and her daughter and grand-daughter, so bring on the GTGs, I say!

If you decide on a GTG on the 7th in Rome, we'd love to join you. I am traveling with a girlfriend.

Elba, we can do dinner on the 7th in Roma - how about Trattoria Armando al Pantheon or Del Pallero? I am also traveling with a girlfriend.

Bookchick, Sunday Sept. 17th could work - it is our last night in Italy (boo). You pick the spot and we'll be there . I also have had 3 previous gtg's with fodorites - last year I met SusanP and Azure and the year before awbaker. All were wonderful evenings!

To kismetchimera, sorry we will miss you, have a lovely trip.

Dinner on the 7th is fine with us. I don't know the restaurants (they are on my list), so I'll go along with your choice.

Hi Jen, Sure wish I could meet you for dinner again. It was a lot of fun last year. I just started a new job, so don't have any vacation time yet, but I'm thinking of going over Thanksgiving for a very short trip or maybe over Xmas. Have a great time!

Grazie JenV. Have a great time in Rome.Dont forget to visit the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, the Mother Church of Rome, I, my siblings and my two older children were baptized there.

BC, I will be in Capri the 6th also with Pina, my childhood Roman friend..We were the two Musketeers..Inseparable.

Thanks for responding everyone!

Elba, dinner on the 7th it is. I am not sure about the restaurant - I loved Del Pallaro last year but it is fun to try new stuff too so that is why Trattoria Armando and Obika Mozzerella Bar are on my radar for this year. Does anyone have any comments as to which of these three would be the most fun for a gtg? My email is [email protected] if you would like to email me and also I will check this post prior to the 7th to confirm.

LindaL - so you're the reason I could not get a room at Villa Rosa this year You are lucky! I have stayed there twice and love it, especially Marianna Caldiero, whose family owns the hotel. We are staying at the sister hotel Villa La Tartana. How about the 9th for drinks say 7:00?

Hi Susan, congrats on the new job! I will say ciao to your beloved city for you and hope you get back there soon.

Kismetchimera - I visited San Giovanni last year and it is amazing, how incredible to have been baptized there.

Jen
