Bitch on Wheels

Im 25, ive been wheelchair bound my whole life and unfortunately after an injury that had me in bed for two months, I put on weight and lost quite a bit of muscle. They say its harder for people with spina bifida to lose weight once its gained but on top of that, I used to have a physical therapist but no longer do and am having a hard time motivating myself. I wanna look like I did in my picture again.

Allora... I don't know Venice very well as I've only been once, but my advice would be not to eat or have a coffee in Piazza San Marco as they charge you as if the stuff was made of 24 carrat gold, and to take the bus (well, it's a boat actually) as the gondola's cost a small fortune. I was there at Carnevale so I didn't see much of Venice itself - just lots of people! You can buy beautiful painted masks that you can't get anywhere else though, so if you're after a souvenir...
Florence I don't know that well again, but if you speak Italian ask the locals where to eat.. they'll direct you a little out of the centre (not so far you need a taxi, don't worry!) to some of the little bistrots - the food is AMAZING and much cheaper than the tourist traps in the centres. The Duomo in Florence is really worth seeing , as is Michelangelo's David.
Rome is beautiful, and there's just so much to see... obviously StPeter's is a must, and although the Colloseum is beautiful you either end up waiting two hours in a queue or paying for a highly expebsive personal tour. The ruins nearby (past the maps of the Romen conquest and up the small hill on the left - sorry I'm rubbish with street names!) are fantastic and quite atmospheric. For nightlife I suggest the Trastevere, along the river, which has wonderful bars for all tastes.
Milan.. Dear old Milan, I lived there for a while, and although it's a stressful place to live it's wonderful to visit. Get around on the Metro, it's cheap and accessible via elevators at some stations, and for those where it is not there are buses and trams for which you use the same ticket and don't pay a centessimo more. Go into the Duomo, and up onto the roof (again there's a lift) as the view and the architecture are amazing, and head down Via Dante to Castello Sforzesco and Parco Sempione if you feel like relaxing in the sun. The shops around Duomo are incredible, with high street as well as designer makes, as is viale Montenapoleone if you're a shopaholic! If you prefer more traditional or individual products there are often markets on the Naviglie (the two canals they are restructuring to put back in use) but it all depends on the day you're there and if you're willing to get up early! The Naviglie is nice also for restaurants and bars at night. And if you want an amazing apertivo go to Movida (Naviglie) where they serve killer cocktails and great Italian snack food. As for pizza, well the North isn't the best place for it, but try to book a table at "La Piccola Ischia" , run by a family from Naples, which serves the best pizza in lombardy, and anywhere North of Cassino I think!
Be aware of the pickpockets, especially around Central station which can be a bit dodgy at night, and come to think of it the same applies to Roma Termini...
That's all for the moment, I'm afraid I don't know anything about your parent's hometowns... I had no idea they were Italian!
