CHICAGO (CBS) — While few foreign journalists had time to enjoy, Chicago during the NATO Summit just ended, several of them praised the city and say they will return on their own time.

As WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports, Chicago has not seen the last of Anna Guaita, U.S. correspondent for Il Messaggerro — Rome’s largest newspaper.

Guaita says she couldn’t see Chicago during the crush of NATO Summit news, but she wants to come back to truly see the city she calls the most beautiful, and its most prestigious art museum.

“Yes, the Art Institute – I just go buy a couple of posters and visit a couple of rooms, and every time is like that, you know, you take a walk along the lake – 15 minutes – and you think, ‘Oh my God, I wish I could stay a couple of hours,” Guaita said. “I would like to walk along the lake at night and see the stars over the lake.”

Guaita and her husband have both visited the city separately on business, and she guarantees they’ll be back together.

And Chicago’s Host Committee can rest easy. Anna believes other reporters feel the same way.
