Any restaurant recommendations for Milan?

Bird's from there so suggestions may be wasted anyway when she rules the roost

check the opening times of the catacombs, it was shut on a Monday (i think) when we went. also get there early as queues can get big….its really good though.

Going to go to Italy in may, can get cheap flights to Pisa. Thinking 7-9 days doing Pisa, Florence + maybe Bologna on the train. Sound good? Anywhere else we should/shouldn't go?

Emirates > Qatar

But echo what Duffman said, thailand is no longer a cheap holiday. If you want Thailand prices of 20 years ago go Cambodia/Laos.
