My wife and I are headed to Italy tomorrow! We are going to Venice, Modena (visiting Ferrari, Lamborghini, and having dinner at Osteria Francesca), Florence, a small town outside of Sienna in Tuscany, and then finishing up in Rome. Any suggestions for eating, drinking, etc.?

While in Tuscany, try to swing San Gimignano. Easily one of my favorite stops outside of Florence. Never once been to Modena. Can't speak much for Venice, as I've never stayed long. Rome has so many great restaurants, outside of the tourist realm. La Pergola in Rome is unbelievable; $300-something (don't recall exactly) for a nine-course sample menu, but if you can make it happen, certainly do so. Enjoy yourself.

Enjoy the trip - and have fun at Osteria Francescana; ironically, my favorite bite there was their house-cured parma ham and prosciutto, even over the famous tortellini!

Make sure to hit up a winery while in Tuscany as well. We visited Castello di Verrazzano, they have an awesome wine tour and food pairing.

Too many to even list. I found the stretch of coast between Genoa and Portofino to be my favorite part of the country. Just serene, traditional, and beautiful.

So...back from Italy! What a trip! We started in Venice then to Modena, Florence, Tuscany, and then Rome. Just a few of the highlights....lunch at Osteria Francescana (once in a lifetime experience), Ferrari Museum (somewhat disappointing), Wine tour at Castello di Verrazzano, cooking classes in Tuscany, plus all the art and history in Florence and Rome! Well over 1,000 pics so if you are interested in seeing any of them just let me know. Caio!

Florence is definitely one of my favorite cities in Italy. If you can do the night tour, do it, it includes a great dinner and drinks.

Don't know how flex your plans are but if you can make it to Lake Como check it out. Definite must in my book.

I know this is an old thread... but seriously? If you're going to pretend like you are cultured after making one trip to Italy, please spell the word correctly.

Patrick...I'm not sure if you are trying to be funny and just bust my balls or if you are just being a dick. Because I accidentally misspelled a single word I am now pretending to be cultured?

I went to Italy and shared my experience with others...isn't that the point of this site?

So Patrick, I can't tell if you are just trying to be funny and bust my balls or if you are just being a complete DICK?

I went to Italy and decided to share the experience with others, isn't what this site is about? So I accidentally misspelled a single word, that makes me somehow pretending to be cultured?

Rarcher, please post some pics here.
I went to Rome in 2010 and going there again this Oct (Milan, Cinque Terre, Maranello, Venice, Lake Como).
I'm particularly want to see some pics of Florence and the landscape in Tuscany.

We are going back in November, planning on staying in the Tuscany region in a local village. Ridiculously inexpensive, it's a working village so part of the experience is helping with the harvest and production of either the grapes or olives.

How do you set something like that up?

Nice
