“With ancient stone building and statues lining every street there is far too much to see here in Venice in one day. There are shops and vendors in every plaza where you can buy everything from diamond jewelry to replica swords to Cuban cigars. You will also find local artists who will paint your picture or play music for a small fee. Europe is famous for its churches and Venice has some of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen – but you do have to pay to see most of them. You can usually find package deals that will pay for admission to several churches at once. It is cheaper to get a hotel off the island and take the train back on but if you want the experience of sleeping in Venice expect to pay well over 100 euro a night. Definitely get a map of the city - once you get lost it can take hours to find the train station again. And take a good camera!”

Verona is probably my favorite city to visit. You enter through the original Roman city gates and can park your car right outside the world’s second largest coliseum. The coliseum is still used every summer for operas and concerts - Pearl Jam was playing during one of my visits. This is the fabled setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and you can tour her home and get your picture taken with her bronze statue. This city is not as well known to the tourists so there are very few long lines. It is a great place to spend a day or two or you can tour the city and see all the major attractions in a few hours on foot.”
