Have been to Italy several times including Torino for the winter Olympics, Rome, Venice (my wife used to live there), Florence, Portofino, Positano, Capri and many other spots. Some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet! The history is enough of a reason to go, but the food and wine make it doubly so. Have you thought about reaching out to the folks at Beretta? If you don’t want to start off calling Italy, you could try the Beretta Gallery in New York or Dallas. They should be able to point you in the right direction. While I love Italy, if I was going to retire permanently in Europe it would be hard to beat Provence!
