Can I preorder?
Good points. I am willing to go out of the way to pick something up, but not that far out of the way. I was concerned that buying cloth without knowing what I'm doing could be a poor choice.
Cities: Rome, Sorrento, Florence, Venice, Cinque Terre.   No kids.
I will be travelling to Italy soon, and would like to bring back something as a momento.
