    Any recommendations for events or exhibitions coming up in the area would be greatly appreciated as well.
    I don't remember the name, sorry. If you are walking towards the bridge from the center it's on the left side on the block before.

    heading to Italia in late march, checking out Firenze and Venezia, anything new to look at?
    also I am also assuming that Venezia has no stores but just curious, could be anything not necessarily clothing related.

    You may also ask Geoffrey B. Small for advice: he's quite near Venice and may have some other good suggestion.

    I wanted to send you a private message but it seems that there is an error "TriggerDiscipline has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

    I wanted to get some details related to a different thread.

    Not really. Just walk around, eat good food, and take it all in. No shops in Venice.

    Yeah, I figured as much, any store related to my interests I would already know about.

    in Florence try this https://www.tripadvisor.de/Restauran...e_Tuscany.html

    it is only about 900 meters from Florence Station. One of the few places not expensive in the centre of the city. I guess one "panino" costed something as 2€..

    Is the Venice Grand Canal boat ride worth it? The price is pretty steep...

    the big ITALIANA exhibition at the palazzo reale (next to the duomo) is worth a visit for sz members. it includes some pretty interesting carpe diem/l'maltieri pieces and photographs.

    Not sure if anyone here lives in Florence but are there any recommendations for dry-cleaners? I found several through searching online but it's always useful to know what others think.
