in three weeks, i'll be departing for a 15 day vacation in europe. my itinerary is 6 days in paris; then off to milan to shop & see duomo number 1; then cinque terre where we'll be staying in vernazza; then to a little farmhouse outside of bologna called corte d'aibo to enjoy the italian countryside; and finally to florence, where i plan on gaining multiple pounds from all the wonderful gelato.
the last time i was in paris, i was stuck in tourist-trapped alleys with 15 euro pre-fixes that catered to the american palate so i'm looking for some recommendations. where shall i dine in paris? in florence?
