      Old Bergamo is an amazing walled medieval on a hill outside Milan. Easily reached by bus. Venetian with a fascinating history. You don't have to travel Ryanair to find a reason to go!

      I assume you mean Licante and Malpensa, but if you mean Milano-Bergamo, then do go to the old city of Bergamo,

      Service was a bit dodgy and they were out of most food items by the evening, but fabulous location for amazing cocktails amid the sculptures. Pretty camp but fun! Have coffee or tea among the statues! ... read more

      Impressive villa with some erotic frescoes and some interesting markings from the German occupation on the wall. We had a private tour so I am not sure what the public one entails, but I can't imagine ... read more

      Wonderful art gallery and library in an astonishing building that also houses Galileo's academy. The entrance fee is a few euro which gives you access to wonderful art and statuary. Splendid and in a ... read more

      I saw Candide in Milan in 2008. That wouldn't have been my first choice, but an evening at Scala should be on your bucket list. The lighting and set decent are amazing, the acoustics are too, and the ... read more
      entire experience is memorable. Opera at its apex.

      bought clever fabric bracelets and a ceramic button. My friend got a set of unique graphic place mats. They also offer classes and shows. Stop in for some world-class craft shopping.

      This boutique is not far from the pizza place I just recommended.

      I met my friend R.V., a Roman for many years (though he prefers to be known as a Florentine), in front of Bassetti Tessuti, Rome's largest fabric store. He was going to take me to his favorite ... read more
      pizzeria, nearby. Hm. Where was it exactly. We walked a few blocks and "Ah, here it is." I ordered a bianco (no tomato sauce) with lots of greens and some red wine. Simple meal, yes. But the pizza, the pizza was truly the best thin-crust pizza I'd ever had. And really I've had a lot of Italian-made pizza. The crust was pita-thin, and crisp, and so flavorful. I was planning to eat only half, but I just had to eat the whole thing and savor every bit. In Rome? Want pizza? Go to Taverna Le Coppelle.

      Santa Pudenziana is probably the oldest Christian church in Rome. It doesn’t look interesting at all from the outside, and inside it’s pretty plain, but the main attraction here are the 4th century ... read more
      mosaics (they have been restored). The mosaics (considered to be the oldest in Rome) are very impressive and colorful, they depict some religious scene. It’s worth a stop for sure, especially if you are visiting Santa Maria Maggiore (short walk from there).

      The Vittorio Emanuele Monument is a pretty ugly building and is totally out of place next to the Roman Forum and other historical sites. Romans hate it. It is commonly known as the Wedding Cake. But ... read more
      there is a very good reason to visit it. Take a glass elevator to the top terrace and you will get the best 360 degrees views of Rome. It’s like seeing New York from the Top of the Rock (except you don’t need to be that high to see Rome).

      The Galleria is basically just an upscale shopping mall, but spinning on the bull's testicles is fun as a way of adding spice to a couples' day out. And there are some nice restaurants.
