Lunch: Shades Oceanfront Bistro, 5083 Santa Monica Avenue #1f, San Diego, CA 92107
Laid back place, that serves surprisingly nice food at decent prices.
Dinner: Coronado Brewing Company, 170 Orange Avenue, Coronado
Large place, busy early, good for groups. Food was average but good, their beers are nice but pricey. The food is reasonably priced.
... cover everything. Other trips on my mind are to the cities of Orvieto (where a family friend lives), Torino, Rimini, Genoa, Mantua, Verona....
But there is only so much time. And, of course, I must see Venice, but that trip will be done first on a program trip and second with my family.
So this is likely my last attempt at research before I go. Soon the rush of organizing, packing, and goodbyes will begin. Next stop, PARMA!

... Jim is! Great craic from an American!! We chilled out there for a while enjoying the amusing convo, and then watching the madness of Little Italy go on – three pimped out cars with hydraulics suspension came and cornered off the roads – one blared Michael Jackson music while another car went up on its side (one wheel off the ground) and drove around in a circle! It was such a random thing to see!! Check out the video!!

How has this hotel rated in the past?
The location is easy to reach by car, with sufficient parking at this time of year (december) but I expect parking may be an issue in summer.

The room is a good size with standard furniture and equipment. Nothing too fancy, but it works all well.
