Many thanks to Birgit Navarre at McCabe World Travel in McLean, Va., for taking our ideas and turning them into a vacation. She booked our flights, suggested destinations, booked hotels and rental car, and got us off to a running start.

Giolliti, an older established gelateria with a popular name. All the locals steered us away from it as a tourist attraction. I would compare it to Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The fare is no better than elsewhere but you get a certain sense of place.

Here is where we went instead, Gelateria Le Palme (The Palms). They offer dozens of flavors, maybe over 100, including conventional gelato plus yogurts, fruits, and mousses.
