New and interesting in Rome and Venice?

My girlfriend and I are going to Italy in three weeks. We both love Rome, but neither of us has been in a while. I am a "foodie" (sigh) and am fluent in Italian, if rusty. Some things we're seeing: Palazzo Altemps, S. Luigi dei Francesi for the Caravaggios, Villa Borghese, MAXXI, the Quirinale. Is there anything new, or newly open, that we should be aware of? Any musical happenings in early May we shouldn't miss? [more inside]

City for a long weekend getaway?

My wife and I have some friends willing to watch our kids and 50,000 Delta skymiles each. We'd like to spend a long, car free weekend in a city that is new to us. We want to have a hotel room from which we can walk to nice restaurants and fun or interesting attractions (we like good museums and parks, for example). We've been to Boston, D.C., San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, and New York. Can you suggest somewhere new in the U.S. or Canada that would be fun to visit?

High-speed think-on-your-feet logistical-planning vacation?

A friend and I take a trip once a year together. Usually it's been something like a national park, but last year we said "screw it, let's go to Disney World" - and had so much fun; not so much because "Disney" but because of the challenges of high-speed navigating a complex ecosystem of timing and logistics and transportation and reservations. What can we do next year that would scratch the same kind of itch? Anywhere in the world is fine. [more inside]

How do I Bay Area?

Help me plan an introvert's vacation.

The gap between President's Day and Memorial day is months long and, in the lack of state holidays, I tend not to take any time off during that stretch. It seems to me that a four day weekend in April would be a good idea. I live in central New Jersey, and a four hour drive could take me to most of Pennsylvania, most of Long Island, the southern extension of New York, and even parts of Connecticut, Maryland or Delaware.

Recommendations for beach shacks in South Goa?

I'm looking for recommendations for beach shacks in South Goa. Ideal would be right on the water, quiet, and with good food options nearby. We'd like to steer clear of places with a bit too much of a ayurveda/yoga/woo/backpacker vibe, but understand some of that is inevitable. I'm familiar with TripAdvisor and IndiaMike--I'm mostly just seeing if AskMe users have any personal recommendations of their own.
