    • Day trips from Agropoli

      Agropoli Apr 6, 2014 at 11:23 AM

      Are there day trips from Agropoli to Salerno, Naples or Herculeneum or do we take a bus or train on our own?

    • Train to Salerno

      Salerno 5 hours ago

      I will arrive at Ciampino Airport at 11:20 am from Madrid and will like to buy train tickets to Salerno on line. But not sure how long it will take to get to Roma Termini from Ciampino to be able to buy train ticket on line for the Freccuarissa train. First I don't know if I can buy train tickets from Ciampino to Roma termini on-line. Neither how long it will take from Ciampino Airport to train station. Playing safe I was thinking to buy ticket to depart from Roma Termini to Salerno at 13:45 hrs, non stop, but not sure if is too tight. Next train is at 14:25hrs. Anyone have done this can tell me if is safe to buy tickets at 13:45

      Hi, we need to get from Bari to Amalfi after ...arriving Bari from overnight ferry from Dubrovnik...... Then after staying 5 days in Amalfi we need to get from Amalfi to Cinqe terre.. August 2014. I cannot see that a bus runs on Sundays from Bari to Naples to get to Amalfi...any suggestions? Could we get a train from Bari to say Sorrento or Salerno? I cannot see online that this may be possible....should we hire a car and just drive from Bari to Salerno, then ferry to Amalfi .The trip from Amalfi to cinque terre..any ideas for the fastest and easiest way to get there in one day... I want to book the fast train, but unsure of what time I could book, as not sure how long it will take on ferry from Amalfi to Naples, Of all the arrangements I have made, this part of the journey has baffled me the most! Appreciate your thoughts. many thanks. Anna

      Pompeii and Naples day trip from Rome, is my Plan possible

      Pompeii Apr 10, 2014 at 1:46 PM

      Hi guys

      I am planning a day trip from Rome to Pompeii and Naples National Archaeological Museum. I know it will be a stretched day, but we are 2 young guys(23 yrs) and we think we may be able to pull it off. Please review the following plan and help me understand if I may be missing any caveats.

      - Take Frecciarossa at 7-35AM from Roma Termini. Reach Naples at 8-45AM.
      - Take the other train to Pompeii Scavi. I believe we would be able to enter the site by 9-45AM? Am I right?
      - Explore Pompeii for about 4-5 hours and leave the site around 2-45 to 3 pm. Is this time too much or too less or appropriate?
      - Take the train back to Naples, Then Take the Metro to the National Museum. Expect to enter the museum around 4-15.
      - Enjoy the museum for a couple of hours (Only stuff related to Pompeii), Leave the Museum before 6-30 PM
      - Reach Da Michele's Pizza from the museum and have a great Napoli Pizza. I hope the waiting should not be much if I reach before 7pm. If the waiting is too much then I could go to Pizzeria Trianon across the street from Da Michelle.
      - After the Pizza feast head back to Napoli centrale and take the Intercity Train to Rome at 8-30pm.

      Please give me your thoughts about this and also feel free to shout it out loud if you think this is crazy. :-) :-)

      Sorrento Apr 2, 2014 at 9:59 PM

      I booked on-line for Sorrento hotel 3 nights early May 2014 for mid-week stay. It was booked in November 2013 not a booking agency but the hotel's website. There room rate offer was 79 euro per night. I have now received by email a notification that my credit card has expired (it hasn't) and that the rate is now 89 euro per night. Can they do this?

    • How long should I spend in Ischia?

      by sophievis Online Now Jul 6, 2011 at 1:12 AM

      Hi, I'm visiting Sorrento and want to spend some time in Ischia, but not sure how long to spend there.

      I know it's much bigger than Capri which I believe can be seen in a day or so, so I'm not sure how long I would need. I have a friend who visited Ischia just for a day and said that they only had time to see the port town and so didn't do justice to the island.

      What towns/villages should I definitely visit, which should I not bother with (using public transport)?

      How many nights should I stay? 1 night, 2 nights?

      Where is the best place to be based? we want somewhere that is fairly busy at night, ie, lots of restaurants etc rather than somewhere that is more remote and quiet.

      Hope someone can maybe help with this.

      Two questions:
      1. What is the best beach for laying out/swimming and enjoying the thermal springs?
      2. If we're traveling from the main port on Ischia would renting a moped or taking a water taxi be a viable option for transportation to the beach/springs?

    • questions about Ischia in January

      by gurusy Online Now Dec 3, 2008 at 4:55 PM

      We want to visit Ischia for the first time this winter January 2-6 with our 19 year old daughter. Should we take our rental car over from Naples on the boat, or should we get one on the island instead?
      We know it will be quiet since it is cold, but we love thermal hot springs and it is the only time we can go. The side by Forio looks very nice so are considering Royal Palm Hotel or something in that area since we will have a car to go into porto Ischia if we get bored. Or should we stay in town so our daughter has more to do? Any other recommendations welcomed! Our favorite hot springs so far are in Oregon and California, USA.

      by palm1403 Online Now Apr 18, 2007 at 6:10 PM

      I'd like to take a morning boat directly to Forio - it seems I need to take one from Molo Beverello at 10:25 AM? I'm not sure if it's a hydrofoil or a
      ferry, but it seems better to go directly to Forio than to Ischia Port. I've been told it's better to stay near Mergellina port than Beverello, but I don't think there's a good schedule to Forio from there.

      Does anybody have any hotel or ferry suggestions to share? I leave for Europe in one week!

      Hi guys,

      I'm Carole, 36, and I'm thinking of booking a week in Ischia in July/August 07 in order to relax after attending a wedding in Madrid, Spain and after sightseeing around Italy.
      I'll be going alone to Ischia. Never been to Italy before and I don't speak Italian. Well, I'm half Spanish/half French so I'm not too bothered about the language bareer (Italian is pretty similar to Spanish & French) but is there any risk of being hassled there as I'll be out and about on my own?
      Thanks for advising
