Gelato Run 2007

My last few trips have been to Paris (twice), Burgundy, and Israel. We haven't been to Italy since our Bologna-Ravenna-La Marche-Rome trip of 2005. Time to return.

While the boys are away, Larry and I will head to Piemonte for 2 1/2 weeks. We scored a direct flight to Milano using FF miles, for which I am profoundly grateful. Even though it's Alitalia.

We land in Milano on July 24, and Larry's friend C. is determined to pick us up. No amount of persuasion will work to change his mind, so we're just cheerfully accepting his hospitality. At some point, he'll put us on a train for Torino. In Torino, we're staying at a great looking loft with air conditioning, which will be our base for four days.

Plans include a lot of walking, visiting the Cinema Museum in the Mole, the Egyptian Museum, more walking, some good food, and enjoying getting our feet on the ground in Italy once again.

Then, we have 12 days in a little house in a village between Asti and Alba. Casa Nella Vigna. http://www.acasainmonferrato.com/ We have a long list of towns to visit, keeping to within a one hour range. There's plenty to see and do in the area.

We'll have one night in neighboring Liguria, at a seaside hotel. Hotel Casmona. http://www.casmona.com/eng/hotel_casmona.html

Leaving two weeks from tonight!

Good news! An Amy post. :)
Your trip sounds exciting - I'm looking forward to hearing more. I stayed for a night at your Camogli hotel on my lat trip.

Piemonte is a lovely area. Lucky you. :)

Kim:

Hey Amy, I've been meaning to ask - r u taking the phone? If so, if you know someone who is fluent in Italian (perhaps your friend C), see if he can figure out how to turn off those annoying messages from TIM.

I'm quite jealous of your trip (but then again, I get to go to Paris in September, so not too much to complain about). :D
