Someone needs a hug. And a kiss on both cheeks.

I think I've been to Italy maybe 12 to 15 times in my life and never spoke the language. Always manage to get understood by butchering French words into fake Italian - which seems good enough to get by.

Bromio, via the Passo Stelvio. Of course Lake Como is required as well.

You could easily spend 10 days in Rome alone and not be done with it. Naples might be a shithole to some, but to me, the stark contrast between grit and flair makes the city. If you've got time to spare while in Naples - visit Sorrento, it's only a short ride by local train.

I would also consider Milan. I have found lots of fashion bargains there over the years. If you go Bill then you might want to add Savini to the list for fine food.

But he's only got ten days. I think we all agree that significant time in Rome is a must. Going from Florence to Milan to Rome will eat up a lot of time in travel alone. Anyways, outside of shopping, does Milan hold much of a candle to the other cities on the itinerary? For general touring in the north, Florence or Venice make a lot more sense to me.

I had lots of fun in Milan, but wouldn't go there as a substitute for other cities mentioned.

+1 Milan has plenty of good food and drink and some excellent museums, but I don't know that I'd be going there again if not for business.

Milan arguably has the best entertainment as well but I will leave it up to Bill what he wants to do. The opera and classical music there is superb as is the nightclubbing. I honestly enjoy it more than Rome even it is less scenic.

I second this.

And I'm Italian and not from Rome, for what it's worth.

Bizarre - why would you go to Bormio, of all places? Also, a lot of Americans (except perhaps Californians) would find some of the bends on the Stelvio road rather challenging. And the drop is steep.

OK, we don't actually put parmesan on seafood pasta. But your other posts are rather perplexing, to say the least.

Indeed. By the way, the actual translation is clistere (as in 'enema'), but it's not used as an insult in the same way. I might try it though.

R., would the Italians hate my OneShoe as much as SF'ers do?

It's difficult to generalise. I rather like them (perhaps with the welt/soles modification I was thinking about in the other thread), but that's just one Italian out of 60,000,000. It's also difficult to tell how much the SFers hate the shoes from how much they hate the shoes on you (or perhaps you with those shoes, which is less kind but probably closer to the truth). I would say that most people in most places (such as SF or Italy) have a superficial and not well-thought-through preference for variety in dress.
