I love travelling but I don't get enough of it. I've seen a bit of three continents (Africa, America and Asia, in alphabetical order) and a lot more of Europe, but there's always room for new experiences.

I'm also interested in promoting the knowledge of my own mother tongue; if you like Italian, you may want to join http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/42949/italian-language-usage

comment Northern Italy: east to west or west to east?
@MarkE. I haven't forgotten that I should write something more about what to see, I just haven't had time to do it yet, but I'll try my best to provide you with suggestions.

comment Northern Italy: east to west or west to east?
Absolutely not skipped, on the contrary! What I meant is that people normally don't realize how many interesting things there are here to visit, and just have a quick look at it. Here you should visit Brera Museum, da Vinci's Last Supper (to be booked early in advance), Poldi Pezzoli Museum, Sforza Castle (with a Michelangelo's Pietà), St Ambrose's Church, the Duomo, and little jewels like St Satiro's Church (if you studied art, it is a masterpiece of perspective). If you wish, I'll think of other things and get back to you with suggestions.

comment Will bringing your own bottle of wine to a restaurant in France cause bad service?
I'd go by Gilles' answer below; in addition to it, and as an amendment to your question, consider that tipping is not compulsory in France, so there is no direct connection between your idea of bringing your own bottle and the tipping option.

comment Is the couvert mandatory or optional in Italy?
@Karlson. I didn't know how to mark the separation between Italian restaurants, which normally make you pay this charge, and those which do not offer Italian cuisine, and that save you the extra expense. To tell you the truth, I very much enjoy eating out when I can get something not traditionally Italian, so Indian and Japanese restaurants are two favourites of mine.
