My wife and I spent Christmas, 1968 in Verona with her brother and Italian sister in law.  (Yes, the same wife I have now!) Beautiful area, coliseum-like amphitheater that still held live operas, Juliet's Balcony, Lago di Garda, and all the rest.  We flew back to my base in Turkey from Aviano, enjoying the view of the foothills of the Alps, and had a stopover in Pisa where we enjoyed a cappuccino in the terminal.  Haven't really been back to that area since.  Mostly Rome, La Spezia, and down south, Napoli, Taranto, Brindisi, and with my wife's second Italian sister in law in a little burg called Martina Franca.  That area is famous for the Trullis, igloo shaped stone homes that were originally designed to be taken apart and carted to the next place the family was to work.  Capri was a bit of a tourist trap until we found a hotel at the "Little Marina" on the far side of the island...much quieter and more pleasant...Prince Albert's yacht spent the night there because he was going to a party in town but when we got up the next morning it was gone.  Had a great view of the Fraglione rocks....didnt know they existed till we got there.  Amalfi Coast is really pretty, and we picked out a restaurant for lunch that was only three or four miles off the main road.  Map didn't tell us it was a mile higher in altitude and there were about a hundred switchbacks getting there.  Once there, though, the food was great and the view predictably breathtaking. 

Maybe we need a joint venture over there, about a month in duration, so each of us could show the others what we love about Italy.  Only restriction would be no discussing politics.....if that is possible, lol.
