I went through all the emails I received on Florence, Venice, and the congratulations on finishing the PhD. Apologies for the delay in responding. If I missed your email, I apologize (I’ll go through them again over the weekend).
You are all very kind, and I printed out and saved to my phone all the advice that you provided so I can refer back to it while I’m in Italy!
I’m going to collect the places and links that were offered and check them out while I am over there and then share the information here for others planning trips to Florence, Venice, and Sicily.
It’s great to have a community of like-minded individuals who enjoy sharing their information and joys of Italy. It was a pleasure to read all of your emails; I learned so much!
