By the way....you know us.....we are not usually willing to just let things be.

We always like to tinker with our trips.

No details, no answers, nothing definite...but....you may have options.

There...was that cryptic enough?

Buono Serra!
Such a tease!!!

I found an evening Italian 101 class at Emory University here in Atlanta. It is 10 weeks and covers the following:

After this class, you will be able to
Greet others appropriately
Introduce yourself and others
Briefly describe things and people
Talk about activities and pastimes in the present tense
Make polite exchanges such as those needed for shopping and ordering food
Ask and respond to basic questions
Pronounce and use numbers correctly
Ask for and understand simple directions
Talk about prices and dates, tell time, and discuss the weather

The current session has already started but hope that one starts up again in January. I think it would be worth the time and money.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Ciao ABDers

I am sooooooo excited for all of you. You are going to have a trip beyond your expectations.

Thought I would post a link to a really great Italy information website. I found it before my trip and it was a great resource of information.

http://goitaly.about.com

Don't forget to sign up for the newsletter too - it's like getting a taste of Italy in your inbox every month

That course sounds great, looks like it covers all the basics!

Has anyone even thought about booking air yet? I looked at the time I signed up for the trip and then again yesterday. The price has went down a few hundred dollars. Part of me wants to jump on it but am hopeful it may come down more. For London / Paris, I booked extremely early. It worked out well b/c the price only went up from there. What are you guys thinking?

I have been pricing airfare and what I am finding seems high right now.

John and I have decided to go to Italy for Christmas and I found first class air for $2500.00 each.

Coach was about $1400 each....but we buy 3 seats in coach. Our choice was 5K or $4200. With first class, you have much higher baggage allowances and no additional fees. It was an easy choice.

It's really a gamble as to when you buy. I know some airlines will give you credit toward your next flight if the price goes down. You might want to look at that as well.

Italy for Christmas! FUN! Thanks for the feedback regarding flights. You're right. It really is a gamble. I think I may sit on it for a little longer.

Anything for you my dear....

We are flying Delta.

Our outbound flight is Orlando / Atlanta / Rome.

Coming home there are two stops...Venice / Charles De Gaulle (to be so close to Paris and not be able to stop) / Atlanta / Orlando.

I am flying American from Boston to JFK and then British Airways JFK-London-Rome, then Venice-London-Singapore-Melbourne-Canberra (Stopping for a couple of nights in London - with the possibility of a sneaky side trip to Paris).

I'm pretty sure that you aren't allowed to go to Paris without the rest of us.

Folks,

It has been pointed out to me (Thanks John!!!!) that the actual dates of the trip are 5/24 - 6/1 and not 6/3 as I had in the heading of this thread.

Kevin
