Thanks as always for the write-up. I'm getting both the nostalgia for my first ED (and remembering your ordeal from 3 years ago, actually ) and a glimpse of the next one as we're going to Italy this time around. On that topic, any restaurant recommendations for Lake Como? We're staying in Bellagio but I don't think a nice drive with the top down to go somewhere else is out the question.

This was definitely a more wine-centric trip than my previous ones have been, but that's the beauty of traveling in this wonderful psrt of the world: you can build your itinerary around whatever interests you because there's so much for every interest.
