There's a third kind... those who hang close to a nun when crossing the road. Italians will never run over a nun! And nuns are not hard to find in Rome.

Thanks again for all of the ideas from everyone who posted. Toosie, I think you are my personal savior - great recommendations! I am looking into the Taste of Florence tour. So far, it looks like nobody has signed up for the dates that I'm there, so I'm hoping there is a tour while I'm there. There's another company that does something similar, Florence for Foodies, which was also highly rated on TripAdvisor. I hope I can get on one of these food tours, as they sound extremely helpful.

I'm going to do a couple of guided tours for the major museums. While I find art and art history interesting, I admit that I don't know much about these subjects, so I think a tour might be well worth it. I will leave plenty of free time open though, so I can either stay in Florence and poke around or go to a neighboring town. It's hard to decide which one. Some seem to prefer Siena while others are Lucca fans. And I still wouldn't mind doing the touristy thing and see the Tower of Pisa

Can't believe it's almost time to head to Italy!

Default Luggage storage in Rome Termini

Luggage storages are often overcrowded in the main railway stations. For example in Rome Termini there's always a long line out of the luggage storage door. But there's a valid alternative called Bagbnb, a luggage storage network active in all the main Italian cities. You can go on the website, find the closest sorage and book it online.

Take a break while in Rome...you'll appreciate getting away from the whirlwind that is Rome.

I highly recommend Orvieto, take the train from Rome in 90 minutes. The shopping there is wonderful, as are the sights. Best eateries too. We have used Orvieto as a jumping off point for driving trips into Tuscany and Umbria.

Here's a good description.

We spent 2 weeks in Italy and LOVED Lucca. We spent four days there and are planning to go back. You can rent bikes and ride around the medieval wall to see the countryside. It was our favorite place in Italy by far.

I always take my laptop. I can't leave home without it. We were in China for three weeks last year and I was glad to have my laptop.

Internet access shouldn't be a problem.

Either they're the world's longest planners, or the trip is done. The thread is six years old.
