We are staying in montactinI in mid October and are thinking about taking a day trip to the Val d orcia, maybe montapulciano for lunch then the sulfur baths in bagno vignoni. Is this a good idea or will it be too far to be worth our while?
I"m thinking about taking some mosiac courses in Spilimbergo and then spending six months or so living there and using it as a homebase while I travel around the area (Slovania, etc.) My ideal would be to find a B&B or pension where I could rent a room with bath and breakfast for six months. I checked with Abergo Stella d'Oro and they gave me a great daily rate of 25 euros but that still comes to almost a thousand dollars a month. So I'm thinking about maybe renting a room with a family? Something like that? Or find a cheap apartment in the city center. (I won't have a car). I need to keep my monthly rent down to $600 including utilities. I only need one room, don't need a kitchen or anything like that.
Also, I keep hearing the weather is awful in Spilimbergo; a lot of rain mainly. I quite like rain but not crazy about cold and raining. (I would be there December through at least April, maybe longer) -- anyway, any ideas or comments or just general info on the city. Has anyone explored the "borderless trail" the alpe adria trail? It sounds magical.
Can you recommend some quiet beaches close to La Saline suitable for a 2 year old to play. We will have a car so can travel a few miles. Sand and rock pools would be ideal. La Saline beach looks unattractive. We are visiting in the first week in September. We are happy to walk some way from the car.
I'm planning on visiting San Remo tomorrow after a day at the beach and would like to have dinner there. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a nice fish restaurant there. Preferably something not too touristic and not overpriced.
Thanks in advance!
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!
Arriving by train we are considering staying at a BandB near the Stazione Porta Nueva(Fiored di Roby)...any suggestions for a better place to stay, best places to visit and inexpensive places to pick up a great sandwich or pizza? Thanks so much.

My family and I were on holiday in Menaggio on Friday the 2nd of August. Early evening all the stalls arrived for the market event. I walked through them all and saw a stall at the beginning of the water front promenade bit with a man selling hand made terracotta houses which he makes with his wife (each one different and individual) they were beautiful. He also had other things like terracotta key rings, broaches and figurines... etc.... The houses are actually candle holders you put a tea light inside and it lights up the whole house - stunning! We bought one - Very happy. Unfortunately he did not put his name or details on his beautiful items and I have come home wishing that I had bought all of them....!! I cant stop thinking about them I really cant and really want to find this man so I can buy more of his houses - please please please if you can help me find out who he is and get him to contact me I would be so grateful!. They are such a beautiful memory of Menaggio and Italy I really love them. Can you help ?
I look forward to your reply.

I was in Mestre a week ago and received a fine while taking the bus to the airport on my way out of the country. I had validated my train ticket to get to Mestre and was told at the office that it would work for both the train and bus. Since I was in Italy for five days I used the train every day this was my first experience with the bus, I had used the water taxi and had the pass that worked on all public transportation so I assumed this was the same. I was wrong and received a fine even though the couple next to me who also did not have validated tickets was allowed to purchase tickets upon leaving the bus and I was not. No idea why even though I produced my validated train ticket and attempted to explain what happened. My question is is there a number or website I can go to pay the fine, or do I have to mail it in?
WHERE IS ALAMO RENTAL LOCATED IN TRAIN STATION?
