      buffalo farm tour price

      Paestum Sep 6, 2015 at 11:54 AM

      I really could not find any indication of price on the buffalo farm website, but then everything was in Italian, so I could have just missed something. Does anyone know relatively recent prices, and how far in advance would you need to book it. I am just wondering if I need bother about sorting it before I get to Italy, or whether I could ask my hotel to help with it?

    • Curreri bus from Sorrento to Naples airport

      Sorrento Sep 20, 2015 at 2:50 PM

      Hi all
      I will be travelling to Sorrento shortly and am hoping to get the curreri bus from the airport to Sorrento. Returning to Naples airport, I need to be at the airport between 10am and 10.30 am . There is a bus scheduled to leave at 8.30 and arrive at the airport at 10.00. Would anyone be able to tell me if the bus usually arrives more or less on time or is it likely to get caught up with rush hour traffic and bad roads? As I'm travelling solo, I'm a bit concerned about getting to the airport in time for my return flight. Thank you in anticipation of any replies.

      I am hoping to visit the Amalfi Coast in late October this year. I have checked the climate, and it looks like the weather should be fine.

      I'm not so sure about whether the buses and the boats and so on will be operating. And the restaurants, and so on, will they be open? Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.

Also have read that you don't know what a place charges till you've eaten. Is this the case?

    • Rome to Amalfi Italy transportation

      by Margcramsay Online Now May 13, 2015 at 7:36 AM

      I am travelling from Rome to Sorrento and wanted someone to check to make sure the information for our vacation there is accurate. My travel is in October 2015.

      Fiumicino Airport to train station options - You can reach the Railway Central Station with a bus, train or cab from the airport.

      Train - One Way Fare: about €14 Adult, The Leonardo Express Airport Train is a dedicated airport train taking 30 minutes to reach the centre of Rome (Termini Station) with a frequency every 30 minutes. The Leonardo Express is the fastest and most frequent and most comfortable public transport transfer between Fiumicino Airport and Central Rome (Termini Station). The service is a dedicated airport train and runs non stop, every 30 minutes. The capacity and ticketing facilities means no prior booking required, journey time of 30 minutes with trains every 30 minutes, the first departure from Roma Termini is at 5:50 and last at 22:50 and the first departure from the airport is at 6:38 and last at 23:38.

      At Fiumicino Airport the train station is well signposted within the passenger terminals. It’s a 5-10 minute walk. The way is totally undercover using moving walkways, escalators/lifts. There are ticket machines, the official ticket desk and three or four other independent outlets that all sell tickets for the Leonardo Express train. Note: The station has three platforms and other local trains also terminate here. So do check which platform the next Leonardo Express train departs from, even if there is only one train in the station.

      Rome Termini Station - Termini Station as well as being the main railway station for Rome also houses the main local bus station and is the hub where the Metro system radiates out from. It’s also the biggest district of hotel accommodation for all budgets. It’s a very convenient place to stay. The station is like a small city with a large shopping centre, countless restaurants and facilities like left luggage.

      Rome to Sorrento - Rome take the high speed train to Naples cost about $43 Euro. Updated fares and cost at choose "Napoli Centrale" as your destination. No needs to purchase tickets in advance just buy them from the ticket machine the day of travel. Ticket machines have English language options are easy to use.

      Garibaldi / Central Station Naples - Central Station (Stazione Centrale) is the main Naples train station just to the east of the city centre. The Circumvesuviana Trains stop at a physically separate set of platforms to the main train station with their own separate ticket barriers. Circumvesuviana can be crowded in rush hours and when schools and colleges finish (2 p.m.). Best to avoid these times if you have bags. Although you never leave the Central Station building the Circumvesuviana platforms are called Garibaldi Station which can be confusing. Once you get off your train at Central Station you just turn left at the end of the platform and keep going following the signs above.

      Naples to Sorrento - Sorrento can only be reached by taking the private 'Circumvesuviana Line' from Naples. Tickets can only be purchased locally upon arrival. You can buy tickets at the station but note you have to pay cash, no credit cards, unlike the national railways. Circumvesuviana trains depart out of the Piazza Garibaldi station in Naples which is conveniently located in the lower level of the same building as the Naples Centrale Station. Go down to the lower level and catch the local, Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento Cost about 5 euros. Trains between Naples and Sorrento depart once every half hour and take about 55 to 68 minutes in duration.

      Sorrento to Pompeii - Getting to Pompeii and/or Herculaneum is very easy and inexpensive by train from Sorrento... Go to the station and ask for round-trip tickets on the Circumvesuviana: you'll want the Napoli-Sorrento line, trains run frequently (although not 24/7) and the trip will take about 30-40 minutes from either place. You'll want to get off at the POMPEII SCAVI-VILLA DEI MISTERI station (scavi means ruins), which is about 50 yards or so in front of the Porta Marina entrance. The POMPEII stop is for the "modern" city and it's a longer walk, although do-able, to an entrance from there.

      The train station in Pompeii is a short walk from the city center and to the archeological site, this station is very small. The entrance to Pompeii is about 50m away from the station and there's a Tourist Information office further down the street. If you need any maps, it can't get wrong once you get off the train and walk from the station to the center. Pompeii is very small easy to navigate on foot

      Circumvesuviana transport information - A 24 hr ticket at the Circumversuvian counter is available for €6.30 (per person). Remember to validate the ticket. Circumvesuviana trains don't have restrooms.

      My family and I are planning a trip to Italy next year late June to early July. We were thinking of flying into Rome, doing a few days in rome and then going down the somewhere on the Amalfi coast for about a week. From there we can do day trips etc. What is the best town to stay in for this? I don't think that we will be renting a car, so I want to be able to get around fairly easily. I understand that there are ferries and hydrofoils that go from naples, salerno, sorrento, capri, amalfi etc. I just want to make the most of the trip, keep cost down and see as much of beauty of the coast as possible. Also, what are the best towns for shopping and good restaurants…. Thanks

      Will be renting a villa in Riviera San Montano for a week in late May 2015. Was looking for advice for a couple of things to do as day trips. Want to relax on this trip, so I am not looking for action packed days that are filled from morning to bed time. Possibly a couple of half day trips but would be willing to take one full day adventure. Land or Sea would be fine. Not interested in shopping or endless museums. Historical sights, spas, water sports would be ok!

      Also, suggestions for restaurants would be appreciated!

I guess we will if there is no option, but you guys are so knowledgeable, I'm hoping someone knows a way by bus.
