Let me see if I can make this clear. My wife bought a copy of Fred Plotkin's book on Italian restaurants, etc.

We are planning a trip to Italy and want it to be a combination of touring and eating at some of his recommended places.

This is our third trip so we want to cover some ground we have not seen before. Right now the plan is to go to Venice, then across to possibly Padua, Manantova, Cinque Terre and around the bend to Sanremo. The latter is highly recommended by Plotkin.

From there, I don't know where. This is where I could use some assistance from the gastronomes of Italian food and those acquainted with Plotkin's book.

I have thought about flying down to the Amalfi Coast and seeing Pompeii, or flying over to Umbria and touring that area (We dearly loved Tuscany but have been there twice). Also I don't really know that much about the northern part of Italy. I have driven through there but didn't dally.

Thanks,and hope I am not asking too much of you wonderful, charming people.
