We were one of those who agonized over the decision "to go or not to go" after the events of 9/11. I just want to thank all of you who gave me support during a difficult time. For us, the decision to go was the right one, and Iím glad we went. For those of you who decided to postpone your trip, I hope itís perfect when the time is right for you.

The information found on this site ( was invaluable to us. I printed out several pages including the driving and food shopping information and brought it with us. I also printed out some of the language lessons (thanks, Steve).

Our plan was to stay in only two places in two weeks. We also made the decision to stay in more rural areas as opposed to hitting the big cities. Rome and Venice will have to be there for our next trip.

We had perfect weather. October is a wonderful time to go.

Everything in Italy is so clean! In all the towns and little villages we were in, people were constantly sweeping and washing windows. We rarely saw any litter, which made us wonder why here in the States we have to see so much of it!
