Thanks. Are you going on either the 4th of July cruise or the Baltics cruise this summer. We'll be on both of those.

Oh I do have one "special" request. Can we get some pizza while we are in Italy? I keep hearing how different and wonderful it is compared to our pizza here in the States.

If you like the pizza in the states, you probably won't like the pizza there, and vice versa!
But whatever, it is a great trip, and Rome is a wonderful place to see!

You can put me down as a maybe for this one. I can't commit this far ahead but, I'd sure love to join my fellow "Freeks" for a trip to Italy! So I'll be watching this one with great interest.

Is this one a charity fund raiser too?

Hi everyone,
I'm very excited to return to Italy as it is one of my favorite countries to visit. I've been to all of the sights more than once, so I'll be happy to go along with the group or make suggestions if asked. The Pope's private gardens for which you need advance reservations as well as the Borghese Museum are really wonderful. The one thing everyone should try is the wide variety of gelato flavors, so much better than regular ice cream! If the itinerary has the same ports as the Dream's inaugural, it will be an extra special cruise, especially with getting to meet all of you.

Thanks Pete, I'm going to see about Nick's suggestion in our Private Messages back and forth, I think you'll figure out what I mean. I'll be the first one to book if I can make this happen! If not, I'll be the second one to book! lol!

Pizza in Italy :eat:

History of Pizza

Link: http://www.lifeinitaly.com/food/pizza-history.asp


Quote :
Italian Traditional Pizza
The Pizza Margherita may have set the standard, but there are
numerous popular varieties of pizza made in Italy today. Pizza from a
Pizzeria is the recognized round shape, made to order and always cooked
in a wood fired oven. Regional varieties are always worth trying such
as Pizza Marinara, a traditional Neapolitan pizza that has oregano,
anchovies and lots of garlic. Pizza Napoli Tomato mozzarella and
anchovies. Capricciosa: a topping of mushrooms, prosciutto, artichoke
hearts, olives and ½ a boiled egg! Pizza Pugliese makes use of the
local capers and olives of the area while Pizza Veronese has mushrooms
and tender Prosciutto crudo. Pizzas from Sicily can have numerous
toppings ranging from green olives, seafood, hard-boiled eggs and peas.
Besides regional styles there are several varieties that are popular
throughout Italy. Quattro Formagi uses a four cheese combination using
fresh mozzarella and three local cheeses such as Gorgonzola, ricotta
and parmigiano-reggiano. Italian tuna packed in olive oil is also a
popular topping along with other marine products like anchovies,
shellfish and shrimp. Quattro Stagioni is a pizza (similar to the
Capricciosa) that represents the four seasons and makes a good sampler
pizza with sections of artichokes, salami or Prosciutto cotto,
mushrooms, and tomatoes. In Liguria you may find pizza topped with
basil pesto and no tomato sauce. Of course there are hundreds more to
discover and all of them are delicious, not to mention the other
members of the pizza family.

Hi everyone,
There are definitely some unusual pizza combinations in Italy. One of the best pizzerias in Naples is named da Michele. They do an incredible margherita pizza, and the line can go down the block to get a pizza . If the cruise stops in Naples, it's definitely worth a side trip. I think I'll skip the pizza with fries on it, and stick with the more traditional ones. For those of you who have been to Rome, what was your favorite place that you have visited?

Our favorite place was the Vatican & The Sistine Chapel. A close second was the Colosseum, but then again we loved all of Rome, so iy is hard to say! Can't wait to go back!
