    Moving to Italy next week.  Anyone have recs for Naples? I'll take any Italian recommendations.  I have been to Florence, Siena, Venice, Rome, and Milan.

    viaggi sicuri e buona fortuna!!!

    Yup.  Been in the works with a job since late February.  It's finally getting real, but it really hasn't hit us.  I don't think it will until we are there for a couple weeks and realize it's not a vacation.

    Wait what? Cinque Terre is legit in general, and Florence is my favorite city of all time, but you’ve done that.

    Cinque Terre is definitely on the list. 



    Wow, badass. Have you found a Browns bar yet?

    Travelling for a work a few times between now and the end of October - Minneapolis, Chicago, then D.C. - probably won't have much down time

    Greve in Chianti region is gorgeous. It’s about an hour outside of Florence. I wouldn’t go there for a weekend, but I’d look into an AirBnB if you have like a week vacation. 

    I have some restaurant recs if you go that route at any point. It’s a super small town, but the views at dusk and night are just incredible. Rolling wineries and the house you’d be staying in likely looks over all of it. All you see is the other houses lights in the middle of the mountains.

    This sounds amazing.  I am definitely going to look into this.

    There are a couple Browns backers bars in Nothern Italy, but none in Naples.  If I  find a couple fans, I will try and start a Browns Backers Chapter in Naples.

    I’ll try and find some pictures I took, but it was 2005, so before everything was saved on digital platforms haha. I’ll have to do some digging. We stayed in a bigger villa, about a 30 min walk/5 min drive to town because we had 15 of us, but they definitely have single family homes for “rent”.
