Suzanne Gibson commented on Return to Milan

What a great trip, inspite of the heat and inspite of the virus! We have cycled to many of the places you visited, and I do love Italy's towns and food. Maybe we can get back next summer?

Love hearing about all the adventures. You never know what will happen when you step out the door. It sometimes makes you late for dinner...

You got my hopes up for a second when you mentioned Lesbian rulers. One can but dream. However, I’d never heard of one, so looked it up. It’s the good old flexible ruler. Those are good to have, in all senses.

Wow. We were here only three years ago and I my memory has dimmed of how spectacular it is in places.

Are you still wavering between Brescia and Bergamo? Bergamo is pretty amazing but you have to love hills to get the most of it. Brescia is well worth a visit and much easier to navigate.

Brescia and Bergamo are still on our to-do list. I’ll be getting my tips from you! :) Enjoying your adventure - thanks for keeping this journal.

We used to do a lot of climbing but I’m liking flat terrain on lot more, especially with panniers. I’ve been carrying a lot more stuff and can really feel it. I really prefer to do climbing when I’m hiking. We loved Ithaca and did some climbing on the bikes without bags but also really enjoyed the hikes to the different falls. What a beautiful place!

Agree! It is so easy to pedal here. The hills are 3% and so short. Sure we could make it harder but why? It is vacation.

As you have learned, Ithaca is gorges and that means steep. Our neighborhood access is a 2 mile climb from the lake that ranges from 6 to 16% before getting home.

That sounds incredible. We tried to do the museum but missed the open time. Will need to put it on the list for our next visit! Turns out most museums and other public places are open Sunday and closed Monday.

Suggestions for Brescia or Bergamo?

Hi Zelda - you probably already know this but if you’re still in Cremona on Sunday you might check out the stradivarius museum. Every Sunday they pull out one of the old violins and play it. We loved it!

Thanks for the advice — we walked in from the Agriturrisimo and glad to miss the huge cobblestones.
