This is me again. I posted on another site earlier, but decided that my heading was too vauge. Thought this might get better results. I have been informed that using all capitals is "shouting", something I did not know. So sorry for shouting at you.<BR>Thanks!

Sunshyn - How are you traveling? Where are you staying? Are you alone or with others? How long will you be in each city??? What time of year are you going to be there?<BR> One thing you need to know is that you have to have your shoulders and knees covered to visit the churches in Italy.<BR> Give us more info and we can help more.<BR>

cherie,<BR> There will be two of us, both women.<BR>We leave California on June 18th. The hotels are booked, (long story, not our doing...we are actually taking someone else's bookings and plane tickets.)The whole trip is 10 days, not nearly long enough..but beggers can't be choosers. we start in Venice for 3 nights, Milan 2 nights, Monaco 1 night, and end in Paris. I did not ask about Paris because ther seems to be a lot of info here on the talk boards. Thanks so much for replying! We really need help!

Venice: the islands of Murano and Burano, the Doge's Palace, St Mark's church, the streets. We found the best food away from the main tourist areas, like the Fondemente Nuove area. If you have time, go to Chioggia, a mini-Venice accessible via waterbus from the Lido, or by land taxi or bus.<BR><BR>Milan - Duomo, daVinci Museum, Naviglio area (which is where we found the best food), La Scala. You can also do a daytrip to Lake Como.<BR><BR>Monaco - Tiny, easily seen in a day. Short train trips to Nice and other Riviera towns. Don't remember where we ate, but it seems to me it was on the beach near a surfer or diver's club.<BR>
