A filed trip is always great, but as an Italian I can say this was pretty hard... didn't get all of them!

I totally forgot about the song “We open in Venice”. It sure would have helped. I did remember to use “Brush up your Shakespeare” to help get Shakespeare’s plays!😊

Cheeses and meats got me through a bunch of these. Parma ham, Genoa salami, Bologna, and Bari (pasta brand). I guess the towns of Mozzarella and Provolone didn't make the cut ;-)

I answered the first six cities correctly, then missed 14 of the next 16. Disappointed that the population of the village of Corleone on the island of Sicily hasn't yet surpassed 185,000 people because scoring a 9 would have been so much more satisfying than the 8 I received.
