Organized Activities in Florence, Italy?

My family is traveling to Florence in October. This is not our first Florentine rodeo, so to speak - we've done a lot of sightseeing and exploring on past visits. This time, we thought it might be fun to delve a little deeper and take a class (cooking?), workshop, special organized tour, etc. Four adults, fairly foodie, up for anything that isn't too physically strenuous. Any MeFi "Been There Done That" recommendations?

Exceptional, unattainable in North America, Italian wine?

What excellent red wine should my partner buy in Italy to bring home that he can't get here? We're fans of Luigi Righetti Amarone, but we can, uh, get it in Toronto. Seems silly to fly it home. Likes: dry, full-bodied, spicy. also enjoy dry pinot noirs (lighter body). Dislikes: sweet, fruity, herbal Price: up to $100/bottle, but that would have to be out of this world amazing.

I'm going to be in Venice for the next week and a half! Please give me some recommendations for food and sightseeing. Thanks!

Hi all. I am looking for recommendations for food in Venice (anything from a Paninoteca to a Ristorante). I've read that it is difficult to find good food in Venice, so I'm hoping the Metafilter hive mind can help me out. In addition, any recommendations for sightseeing would be great. Especially non-traditional/off the beaten path stuff. Thanks again.

What on Earth was going on in Venice?

I was in Venice for a few days at the end of March, and several times saw young people in the street participating in a weird ritual: they would read out a passage from a hand-made poster, the crowd would laugh, and someone would attack them with a foodstuff -- I saw a lot of flour, once a meat tray, and an unfortunate soul having canned whipped cream injected down his pants. What? [more inside]

Should I go to Milan

I have a chance to go to Milan in mid-October. My husband's ticket will be paid for, so we'll just be out-of-pocket for my ticket and lodging for a week. It's been an expensive year for us so far, and I'm reluctant to lay out money for this trip unless it's likely to be spectacular and relatively inexpensive. I cringe at the thought of paying for a rental car and staying at an expensive hotel. On the other hand, the thought of a hostel is not very enticing - unless there's a private room and bathroom. So Mefites - can you recommend spectacular things to do in Milan and places to stay for a frugal traveller? Would this trip be worth it?

Rome Alone

I plan to visit Rome during the end of June primarily for a wedding and to meet up with an ex-girlfriend. I am on a very tight budget and with about 4 days alone, I would like to use the time to partake in some interesting (albeit cheap) activities. I plan on staying at Hotel Taormina due to it's location and reasonable price (43 GBP a night) although I'll take suggestions. Cheap watering holes relative to the hotel and advice on getting from Ciampino airport to the hotel (or one you suggest) would be helpful. Grazie.

Mediterranean holiday ideas...

So, my father, sister and I are planning a trip to Europe in mid-June. We need to work out quite where. I need to be able to fly in from London, the others to train or fly to wherever from Lyon. We need to go somewhere where we can stay for about 6 days, and there will be enough to entertain us there or in nearby town. I was wondering about Malta, my sister thought Genoa, my father thought St Tropez (our budget is not endless so perhaps not) Any suggestions?
