Venice & Milan are amazing....

In Venice, would suggest studying up on the water taxis as that is the only way to get from place to place.

Milan - I spent hours at the El Domo alone

Purchase your books & plan your trip ahead of time as you do not want to waste any time.

Tommy,

JoAnn and I just did the Tauck Tour -Italian Lakes and Cities. We flew into Milan, went to Lugano, where we visited Tremezzo, Como and Bellagio, on Lake Como, then went to Venice, Florence, Siena and Rome. It was an amazing trip.

Call me and I will give you some hints.....

Also--need a referral to the product manager for dental imaging.

Thanks!

Have fun on your trip to Italy.
I just got back from mine recently, I went to Rome and Capri and other little cities off the beaten path.
Unforunatly the dollar to euro value is pretty bad.
