    • 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

    • Livorno to Cinque Terre

      Livorno 3 hours ago

      Our cruise was originally supposed to stop in LaSpezia, but they changed the itinerary to Livorno. We had our hearts set on going to Cinque Terre from LaSpezia. I know that Livorno is quite a bit further away, but we are in port from 7 am to 7 pm. Would taking the train up be a possibility?

      Mugello Race

      Barberino di Mugello 13 hours ago

      Hello, VT Nation:

      I've traveled to all of the MotoGP races in America and am now trying to gauge distances from Europe's MotoGP circuits to each town's epicenter (hotels, restaurants, motorbike shops, bars, clubs, etc.).

      For Mugello, is there just one little town outside of the track? And if so, how far is it and is it very exciting? If the track holds 50,000 people, I imagine all of those Rossi enthusiasts need to eat and sleep somewhere close by.

      Any help you could provide would be most helpful.

      Cheers!

    • 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.

      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:

      Florence (Day 1)

      • Arrive at train station
      • Check in at apartment
      • Lunch at Amorino Panino e Vino
      • Il Duomo di Firenze (Cupola, Campanile, Baptistery)
      • Dinner at I Due Fratellini
      • Buy wine from Enoteca Alessi
      • Lounge around Piazza della Signoria

      Florence (Day 2)

      • Galleria dell'Accademia
      • Tuscan Food Cooking Tour (starts 10am):

                - Tuscan countryside cooking lesson with chef

                  (arista, pizza, pasta, tiramisu, and gelato)

                - 4-course Tuscan lunch with Chianti wine

                - Receive a diploma, book and apron

      • Shop at Mercato San Lorenzo
      • Dinner at Sandwichic

                - Galleria Palatina and Boboli Gardens

      • Walk along the river to Piazza Poggi
      • Enjoy the sunset at Piazzale Michelangiolo
