    Any resort suggestions for Italy

    I’d like to surprise my wife for our 50th with a trip to Italy in September. Do you have any recommendations on a great RCI affiliated resort to visit? In addition, I’d be interested in any overall suggestions you might have for visiting Italy in September. Thanks.

    What's the difference between a Regular and a Plus room at HGVC Borgo alle Vigne?

    I'm hoping to book a room at Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Borgo alle Vigne but the website is very uninformative about the difference between the room types (except for the fact the the "Plus" rooms cost more points). Has anyone stayed there and are familiar with what the "Plus" rooms have...

    Driving thru Italy...

    My wife and I are planning a trip to Italy next fall. I am considering renting a car and driving from city to city. If you have done this, would you do it again, if so, or not, why. TIA Ted
