PS: Pack light. It really is the way to be able to deal with any travel contingency and not end up babbling and ranting.

OMG! Why didn't I think of that? I'll be sure to tell Thom Browne to do that next year. The advice you get here on Fodor's is so smart. LOL.

"babbling and ranting"

Darling, here, you dropped your mirror.

We went in mid to late November and it was indeed quite chilly, but wonderful -- espresso, hot chocolate, roasted chestnut carts, fashionably bundled up Milanese.

espresso, hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts sound divine! I am hoping for some light snowfall, but nothing that would cause flight delays.

Thanks again for all the input, and I'm off to check out hotels near Cadorna.

Once I've settled Milan, I'll be back again to post my questions on Florence!

"I am hoping for some light snowfall"

The Italian film director Luca Guadagnino says it rarely snows in Milan. He got lucky one day while shooting I Am Love, his gorgeous film set in Milan. The scenes he captured with real snow were breathtaking. But most of the snow in the film is the fake stuff.
