Ok, here is the quick rundown oh where I am going, how, and where I will be staying.

I will fly into Venice and take a water taxi to HTTP://WWW.HOTELSAVOIAJOLANDA.COM/ for 3 nights. Venice should be a nice place to shake off the jet lag I hope. From there, I will take a train to Como and spend 2 nights at http://www.hotelmetropolesuisse.com/frame_ing.html

From there, it is down to Milan via train and will spend 3 nights at HTTP://WWW.GRANDHOTELVERDI.COM/INDEX_ENG.HTML I have tickets to the opera at La Scala to see Verdi's MacBeth. Should be fun. Check back to see how it worked out if you like.

From Milan, I am taking the train to La Spezia where I will pick up a rental car for the drive into Portovenere where I will be spending 3 nights at HTTP://WWW.PORTOVENEREHOTEL.IT/ENG/HOME This is a town just South of Cinque Terre, the 5 towns I am especially looking forward to seeing in person.

After unwinding in the Italian Riviera, I will take the train to Florence and spend 4 nights at HTTP://WWW.HOTELPIERREFLORENCE.COM/ I have already purchased a ticket to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa, so will take the train to Pisa and Lucca for a day trip. I also have tickets for the museum so I will be able to see the David.

From Florence, I will drive a rental car up through Italy into Slovenia to the town of Ljubljana. I will spend 3 nights at http://www.hotel-lev.si One of the main sights in Slovenia is Bled and the beautiful lake Bled.

My last town will be Zagreb Croatia, where I will spend 2 nights at http://www.palace.hr/eng/index.html I didn't realize until just the other day that Croatia is not on the Euro system, so will have to use the Croatian currency. Hmm. Wasn't thinking about that, but hey, I figure I will manage.

From Zagreb, I will drive back near Venice and spend one night in a hotel before catching my flight home at dark o'clock.

I hope the links will work. If not, give a shout, or just google them. All of the hotels are online. I also hope you were interested in this.

So exciting!
Time has finally come for it to be your turn to go on a long vacation. Everything seems very well organized and I'm sure you are going to have a blast. Don't forget to post many pictures! Oh! I stayed at the same hotel you are staying at in Firenze! How funny is that! Try to get as much sleep on the plane so that you can avoid jetlag... a cocktail of champagne and zanex works....
