    • 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.

      Bologna Airport Bus - some questions

      by Kathrin_E Online Now May 2, 2014 at 2:48 AM

      Ciao amici,

      I'm going to Bologna soon and could do with a few details about the airport bus, linea BLQ.
      I already found this here: tper.it/content/linea-blq-ae...
      My hotel is at the corner Via dell'Independenza/Via Irneria/Via dei Mille. Google street view shows a BLQ bus right in front of the hotel,which looks convenient. Which stop would be the nearest to get off the bus - Arena del Sole?
      I arrive on Wednesday, so upon arrival this stop should be served. However, it seems that on Sunday, when I leave, the route is different and not all stops are served, but I do not exactly understand that information sheet tper.it/sites/tper.it/files/... Does that mean that on Sunday I'll have to walk to Stazione Centrale to catch the airport bus?
      Do I understand correctly that tickets can be bought from the bus driver, or where do I get them?

      Mille grazie in advance for any help!

      P.S. Links in Italian are perfectly fine with me.

      Travel from Karlsruhe to Bologna

      by Kathrin_E Online Now Feb 27, 2014 at 1:21 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I am looking for the fastest and easiest wat to reach Bologna from Karlsruhe. Of course there is the train, but that means something like 10 hours. Doable if there is no alternative, sure.
      However, I'd like to ask if any of you can think of an alternative, i.e. flying, preferably without changes, that gets me there faster than the train.

      The dates in question are: arrival May 14 (if I have to take the train) or May 15 by early afternoon (if there is a faster option), return Sunday May 18. Dates are set in stone because I am attending a conference.

      Night trains are not a viable option as I know from experience that I cannot sleep on board a running train, that I am a zombie on the day after and would not recommend anyone to be near me - not the perfect conditions for attending a scientific conference and perhaps even giving a talk.

      Driving is also not an option.

      ... any ideas?

      Hubby & I are planning 11 days to Italy from Texas. Thought of flying to Bologna so we can take a day trip to Venice, one to Florence, maybe Pisa?? Rental car while there to explore these areas. Then take a train from Bologna to Rome for 4 days then fly home from Rome. No car there, lol. We prefer B&B to hotels, but a small apartment may be ok.
      So - Travel from TX 1-2 days [ hubby hates lonnnnng flights so we'll break it up

      Bologna area- drive to Venice for day, Florence for day total 3 days here
      Train to Rome, stay in city and us public transport
      Travel home 1-2 days

      I've been to Rome for a very quick 2 day tour with high school kids, wanted so badly to bring him back there.
      Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

      We will be traveling on our way from Modena to southern Tuscany and stopping to visit a friend in Bologna at the University there. Any tips on parking our car while there? Thanks,
      Ken

    • Where to spend the night?

      by alexialea Online Now Aug 27, 2013 at 10:23 AM

      We are 3 adults and a child 6 years old, and we arrive in Bologna airport at 19:10 late September. We have to take an early flight next day 06:50. I cannot find a cheap hotel to spend the night. The cheapest hotel I found in Bologna costs 256 euros for one night. Is there a cheapest way to spend that night? Can we sleep somewhere else except Bologna? We need a very early transportation to airport next morning. Please help!
