  1. See, I loved Rome when I was there for 2 nights. I've done the Vatican and that's it.
  2. @ChampKind, this is terrible news! Positive thoughts your way. I didn't get down to the island before I moved, but I was looking forward to a visit once our facility is up and running in Galveston. [emoji3064]
  3. This. If it's your first time, you have to go to Paris. But the South of France is amazing.
  4. As a bump, I'm currently trying to figure out my late October trip. My 2019 plans for Italy were scuttled, and I'm finding great fares from NY. Debating on throwing whether doing Milan/Rome with each for 6 nights so I can take my time and explore as I like to do. Or, add 3 nights and do 5 nights each in Milan, Florence and Rome. #firstworldproblems
  5. The place I always recommend in Rome, and so far it's been well received, is La Sagrestia (https://www.lasagrestia.com/). Went there twice two nights in a row. It is near the Pantheon in a touristy area, but this place is family owned and has been opened a while. I think my review and photos might be in my travel thread. It was fantastic. When I go back to Rome, I'll definitely head back.
  6. I skipped Avignon and did Arles when I was there in June 2018. I loved Arles and am itching to go back. Lots of really nice stuff close by as well, including Pont du Gard. Let us know what you are interested in in Paris. On TOS, there were tons of Paris recs. Paris is probably one of my favorite places in the world. If feels like coming home everytime I visit. Just watch out for the protests. [emoji57]
  7. Yeah, aiming for 2021, early September. Probably taking my folks for their 50th anniversary trip. They would love it there.
  8. I was looking to rent a waterfront house for a week and drive a car. However, need to go earlier in the year than I am going. I am looking for a trip in late October, which is just too late for good waterfront as the water will be too cold.
  9. It has definitely shot to my top 10 of places to go. I was seriously trying to get there this year, but the lack of flights into the area is definitely an issue. I think I am going to do Milan/Parma/Bologna/Ravenna in October, and save this for 2021. It seems like more and more airlines are operating routes there.
  10. Honestly, IMO not a real news site. Still rumors IMO.
  11. Per NY Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/07/world/middleeast/iran-plane-crash-boeing-ukraine.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
