Siena is nice; all these medieval Tuscan towns are amazing.

I find the food in Italy to be uniformly excellent with the exception of the McDonald's in Rome.

The one across the street from the Termini station? That place was absolutely terrible, far worse than the one in the train station in Florence.

Mantua cause I haven't been there yet, then a bit to Rome (always nice) and the rest couple of days to the S/E tip of Sardegna cause I was recommended it - the sea is supposed to be lovely there and also there are very few people...no Toscana in summer btw cause of all the tourists...

Why I am not surprised that you went to a McDonalds while in Rome?

Looks the same as when I was there in '76...just a tad more Americanized.

Yeah exactly, sorry, my mistake: should read Mantova, of course...
post #132 of 190
Yes, Mantova is beautiful. Not in vicinity of Rome; more convenient if in Milan.
post #133 of 190
I thought only about places where I'd like to go rather than about putting together a round-trip (am no American)- also the distances aren't that great, anyway. Btw, I (being in Austria so that I'd come to Mantova before getting to Milano from Venice) have started to learn some Italian from last year on...recently, though, I regret to say, I have been quite pre-occupied with some other, more important studies and have neglected that line a bit...peccato², should get back to it, soon.

Anyone been to Turin (Torino) before? Opinions?
post #135 of 190
I have been to both Milan and Rome recently.Stayed at the Principe Di Savoia in Milan and the St.Regis in Rome.Both excellent hotels but a tad expensive...The best thing i did in Milan was attending a couple of Inter games,shopping,and eating.

As for Rome the most enjoyable thing was the tour i took of the Vatican with (Eden Walks).Best tour ever.Enjoyed other sightseeing ofcourse,the shopping and eating..
