25th wedding anniversary trip to Italy, have 2 wks what are the must sees for regular touristy places & the not so touristy but gotta see?
I would say you'll need at least a few days in Rome to see the Forum, Palatine hill, and the Vatican. Florence has an amazing museum as well as a beautiful town. For a little less touristy location I recommend Assisi, home of St. Francis. If you are Christian it is amazing and the town is beautiful on a hill. almost 9 years ago
Thinking about heading down to Austin for SXSW, any suggestions on a restaurant for a traditional Texas meal?
Green Mesquite is a good place for what you're looking for, but there is no shortage of good BBQ places. Franklin BBQ may be TOO good as you will have to stand in line to get in. almost 9 years ago
I recommend the Black Star Pub on Lamar. Locally grown food and a variety of beers. A little on the pricey side but service is included in the price so no tips are accepted. almost 9 years ago
