    • AREA to stay in Elba

      Isola d' Elba Apr 9, 2015 at 4:25 AM

      Travelling to Elba with my Mum and Dad at the end of May, beginning of June.

      Due to the Bus time tables from Florence, we would be on Elba for 4nights.

      Ideally like to pick 1 hotel for the 4nights, and do day trips from that base.

      Tried to research the best area to stay in Elba, with no luck. Suggestions seem to be;

      Marina di Campo/ Porto Azzuro/ Cavoli.

      Obviously I need to narrow it down to 1.
      They are both 50yrs old, we would like to see all of the 'touristy' things that Elba has to offer, and also a couple of walks, and a beach.

      So in short, best AREA to stay in Elba.

      Thanks

      Hello, I was wondering if Giuseppe Zanotti's store at The Factory Outlet is any good and how much are the discounts usually. Is it worth going?
      Thanks!

    • Marble Shop in Carrara

      Carrara Apr 11, 2015 at 6:04 PM

      We visited a marble shop in Carrara many years ago when we were stationed in Naples, Italy (1990). The shop had a small cafe attached to it - and I remember the owners had a pet monkey that was on a leash which they chained to one of the chairs. Does anyone know what shop this is? If it still exists? Thanks.

    • Florence and Pisa

      Florence Apr 17, 2015 at 2:01 AM

      Hi all, first of all I love this site, so helpful, thank you.

      I am on a cruise ship (first time) and docking nearish to Florence & Pisa. I am not into organised timed excursions, as I like to amble around and take my time. Is there a way to visit both these places independently of the cruise ship? Bus train etc? Also any recommendations? Thank you in advance x

      Our 2.5 Day Itinerary in Florence (First timers - Need advice!)

      Florence Apr 14, 2015 at 7:14 PM

      Greetings dear travellers! Me and the wife are going to Florence (for the first time!) this summer. With so many things to see, eat, and do, I can't help but make a detailed itinerary. We're newlyweds and kind of in a budget trip, so you might notice we're just hitting the panini stands and pasta/pizza to-go shops a lot.

      Now I need some advice from seasoned travellers and Italian enthusiasts to know if our plan is possible, especially the museum/gallery trips and walking distances. Also, if you have some "YOU MUST DEFINITELY DO/SEE THIS..." advice, that would be awesome! By the way, we will be coming in by train from Venice and we're off to Cinque Terre after.

      Without further ado, here's our 2.5 day Florence itinerary:

    • CLOTHING QUESTION

      by friendly3330 Online Now Mar 3, 2009 at 7:28 PM

      Hi VTers,
      Here is another question. On Sept.16-22 will be in Chianciano Terme. We know Italians love to wear black clothing and we do too. But when we come there the temperature is supposed to be about 26 degrees Celcius (76 degrees F) so is it all right to also wear some other colors?? Since black clothing absorbs the sun's rays and makes one feel hotter, we were wondering if we would look out of place wearing different colors? At home we wear other colors in warmer weather.

      Thanks once again...........

    • WEATHER & TRAIN INFO

      by friendly3330 Online Now Mar 2, 2009 at 12:30 PM

      Hi VTers,
      We are coming here in mid Sept. this year and could you please tell us what the weather would be?

      Also would we be able to get from Chianciano Terme to Venice by high speed train and tour a bit of Venice in 1 day? Where would we get the train, prices, etc? We think it may be too far away.

      Are there any reasonably priced ($8-10 US Dollar) dinners available in Chianciano? Not full course dinners only main dish and side dish. Could you please tell us the names of the restaurants?

      Do you have to pay Euros for use of toilets in Italy? I have been 2 times to Italy, but can't remember.

      Thanks for your help.
