re: 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia - jordan21210
If I were shopping in the high performance mid size sedan segment, I'd get a Quadrifoglio. It'd be between the Mercedes C AMG or the Giulia Quadrifoglio...but the Italian car just does it for me, regardless of which performs better. It's a sharp looking vehicle. ...

re: Pick pockets/europe - jordan21210
Make photocopies of your passport and carry one with you. Leave the actual passport in your room. Buy a money clip, take some euro, your drivers license, and a credit card (and a debit card in case you need an ATM). Keep the clip in your front pocket. Leave one credit card in the room. For the wo...

re: Review of Rome, Florence (Carmignano/Siena/San Gimignano), and Positano (w/ Capri) - jordan21210
Gah damn. How'd you find flights for $445/person? Flew direct from Houston or another major hub? When I went last year it was $1,100/person to fly MSY to Newark then Newark to Milan. Return route was Rome to D.C. then back to MSY. ...

re: T-ZERO DAYS until Italy, final logistics to-do list - jordan21210
I haven't followed it closely, but just from googling it, it actually looks like they banned it right after y'all left but the courts just lifted the ban temporarily yesterday or today. Seems to me like it'll be around for a bit until the injunction works its way through the Italian legal system. It...

re: T-ZERO DAYS until Italy, final logistics to-do list - jordan21210
Pretty sure the big water taxis run early morning, IIRC it's a 20 minute or so boat ride to the airport. Depending on how long you're in Venice for, there is a 72 hour pass you can buy and you just hop on and off at your leisure. I remember it being the best deal for getting around. Don't use the fa...
