    • Evenings in Griante

      Cadenabbia di Griante Jan 11, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      We are hoping to travel to Lake Como this summer and are looking at the possibility of staying in Griante. Is there enough buzz in the evenings. We do not look for entertainment but like to potter about, perhaps a few shops and of course spend the evening dining but do like a 'buzz' and people watching. Is this typical of this area.

      Naples to Pompeii to Benevento

      I'm arriving in Naples Sat. 8 Feb. from Bilbao, Spain around 1pm. I would like to visit Pompeii & Herculaneum on Sunday, but I have to be in Benevento that night for work on Monday. Should I train to Pompeii for Sat. night? It looks like I'd have to take a train back to Naples, then to Benevento, taking about three hours. How late do the trains run, and what time should I plan to leave Pompeii on Sunday?

      Opening hours for churches

      Assisi Jan 21, 2015 at 2:12 PM

      Dear friends hallo again. Since we will be visiting Assisi as well, for a day trip, we would like to visit some of the churches. But, unfortunately, we don't have any luck at finding the exact opening hours for some of them. And when we find them at some sites they don't seem to match one info with the other. So, in short, any help upon this would be mostly appreciated. The churches are:
      1. Eremo delle Carceri
      2. Tiempo di Minerva
      3. Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli
      4. New Church
      5. Oratorio dei pellegrini
      7. San Pietro
      8. Parish of Santa Maria Maggiore
      9. Church of santo Stefano
      10. Santa Maria delle Rose

      Thanks again for your precious help.

    • Transit to Ski Tonale Pass or Presena Glacier

      Italy Jan 9, 2015 at 11:36 PM

      Hi, would like to make a Saturday ski excursion in and around Tonale Pass, more so the Presena Glacier. I can see a train from Brescia will get me as far as Edolo. But what after that?

      Are there shuttles that will get me to the Ski basin from the train station in Edolo as well as carried back?
      Any insights into making this little ski stint a fun experience greatly appreciated. Would be even better if there was a ski/bus tour out of Brescia directly to the ski basin but I just haven't been able to find it.

    • Searching for a specifik hotel in Ischia!! Please help me!

      Ischia Jan 7, 2015 at 12:30 PM

      I'm searching for a hotel in the Ischia and I would really appreciate if you could help me find it.

      It's a 4 star hotel/resort when it's full there can be around 400-500 guests at least.

      The hotel is u-shaped and has bungalows in front of the main building, on the other side of a parking space,

      I think it's quite a big complex, when guests are going to stay in one of the bungalows one of the staff will take you to your room in something similar to a golf car.

      It has 5 floors

      It has a spa with emotional showers and jacuzzi baths/thermal baths,

      The hotel has two restaurants for the customers and two bars, one pool bar and one bar inside.

      The hotel is open right now but it is closing this week for 3,5 weeks for maintenance.

      Outisde of the hotel, very close, there is another restaurant that is not with the hotel but many hotel guests go there, it's like a disco bar restaurant/pizzera where people can both eat, drink and dance.

      The hotel has bed and breakfast, half board and full board.

      When guests arrive late in the evening and they have booked HB or FB, they get a cold dinner plate served for them.

      The hotel has glass doors in the entrance and the floor is blue and beige tiles, the reception desk is white,

      The reception area/lobby have a beautiful ceiling and arched roof between the rooms.

      It's a family run hotel and the owners are old over 60 or 70 years old and they still work there.

      It has 24 hours reception service.

    • Any National Holiday issues?

      Italy Dec 31, 2014 at 8:23 AM

We'll be in Rome for the first date but were considering being at Lake Garda for the second holiday.

    • Adriatic part of Italy!

      by TravellingCA Online Now Jan 26, 2014 at 1:49 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I'm planning on going to the Adriatic part of Italy in May and was wondering on the ideal location to stay as a base for traveling around the region. I thought about Ancona since it seems quite beautiful in pictures. I don't necessarily need to stay in the city itself since I have a car and can travel around. I would be happy to have a base town from which I can visit beautiful hills/beaches/cute coastal town/charming cities. I'm asking too much I know but I'm taking my mother there for her birthday and want to plan a very nice trip for her!

      Many thanks in advance for your suggestions!

      Hi, we are catching the ferry from Ancona to Patras - it leaves 13.30 and we need to be in Ancona at 11.30 to check in (we are told). We don't really want to spend the night in Ancona - we would rather a nice hill town nearby that we can train into Ancona from the next morning. Are there any recommendations? We thought of maybe even staying Verona or Assisi but these seem to be about 3 hrs from Ancona so it may be a bit of a morning rush. We also loved the idea of Spoleto but it is further away. We are coming from Varenna (2nghts), Bergamo (1ngt) and now need another night before Ancona. Any help appreciated.
