Doesn’t hurt that I had the cutest model on the planet to show them off; these are for sale of course, and free to anyone booking a tour, just let us know your t-shirt size when we’re figuring out your itinerary. They’re made with heavy Gilden brand shirts with a fine cotton feel.
I’ll be sporting one in Venice next week while we do some promotional work. See you over there!
Isa’s offering a new class, one for the seafood lovers out there (even if you’re not, don’t discount seafood until you’ve had it prepared the way they do in the Veneto). It really is different when prepared the way they do there, and the freshness factor is hard to beat–and that’s coming from a native Marylander to boot.
If you’re an aviation nerd or an erstwhile pilot like me, this sort of thing will be right up your alley. Malpensa’s an excellent choice if you’re going to start your Italy experience in the north–the fares are usually quite reasonable as it’s a major hub and the train rides you’ll find to Venice, the Lake Region, the rest of the Veneto is pretty regular and quick, and the views along the way are excellent. The only drawback–public transit options to and from the airport can add considerable travel time as many others have noted. Getting through Milanese traffic can be a pain, but on net it’s where we’ll often choose to land in Italia.
