Dream of Italy -- sounds like something a lot of us do, but it's also a great travel newsletter. It's a great resource if you're going to Italy (not just Venice), or if you're not going to Italy this year, but dream about it.
The newsletter can be delivered electronically or through the mail. If SUBSCRIBE BEFORE JANUARY 8th (that's tomorrow), you'll receive a free 2-DVD set of the Italian hit film Cinema Paradiso. ($24.95 value)
You can find some free articles here if you'd like to check it out.
