Food Trading: For Venitians, if you don't mind the sail and the need for a large cargo (unless you sell for loss) - Ragusa(5)->Syracuse(3)->Tripoli(5)->Tunis(5). They share a lot of items, so you may want to go to Naples/Zadar to dump before going the other way. Wheat, Fish, Olives come in large numbers naturally, even better for Venitians. Swap Naples (2 if you invest to get pasta to show up) for Ragusa for a more compact circle.

Nice thread really :)

One advice for future jewellers: try Pegu in SEA, it has 4 kinds of gems (after some minor invest)

For jewel, Pegu 4th jewel will only unlock at 40k development. Not sure current point is how much, but i don't think it has enough point to be out as not much people invest, however. If u has invest enough ducat, u will unlock jakarta to spain quest (trading, PO4 reward)

Alternatively, another good route for jewel is hormuz<>muscat, though slightly danger, but travel time is less than 2min if nothing go wrong.
Beside that, it has 4 spice to grind as secondary option and 2 season, 2 mineral, 2 fragrance, 2 food as adhoc training if there enough cargo

Both are Appraisal rank 4 maps. Silver one is in Athens archives, gold one is in Alexandria. I believe that for at least one of them, you need to complete a different map first... but I don't remember the name.
