    • enough time for transfer ferry from Santa Teresa di Gallura

      Porto Torres Mar 2, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      We arrive with Grimaldi ferry from Barcelona to Porto Torres on 22th August at 11.30am. We want to get a ferry from Santa Teresa to Bonifacio with Moby ferrys at 15h. We have seen in google maps that the journey by road from Porto Torres to Santa Teresa is about 1h44m so I guess that would have enough time to get the 15h ferry.

      Can anyone confirm this?

      Different bus from Amerigo Vespucci (airport) to Santa Maria Novella (train station)

      Florence 6 hours ago

      I understand there is a bus named Volainbus that shuttles from the airport to the Florence train station every 1/2 hour for 6 euros one way. 1st question, how long is the 10 euro round trip ticket good after you validate it? 2nd question, is there a city bus that takes the same route for less? We went to Florence by train from Rome 2 years ago, so we are not familiar with the airport.

      2) is the bus station at Cortina the town itself? if not, how do i get there? how much? And would i be able to see all the beautiful landscape/alps/mountains? Or i would need to go outskirts? If yes, how do i go?

      3) is 1 day to spend at the town of Cortina too long? Would you recommend any stopovers along the way from Venice to Cortina?

      4) I am going with a group of 7 people, if i were to take the 1 day tours or book a van from Venice to Cortina, which tour company or van company would you recommend? and which is cheaper?

      Hello,

      We are taking a train from Rome up towards Montepulciano and Tuscany. I figure getting off the train in Montepulciano is a good place to stop and rent a car. We plan to get a place to stay out in the countryside or out near Montefollonico or Montalcino.

      Can you recommend a good 'Food Tour' in Venice?

      Venice Yesterday

      We're going to stay in Venice for 4 full days and I wish to surprise my wife with a (half day or full day) culinary tour while we're there. We saw a video about the various local cicchetti we could try that are really affordable and delicious. But we don't speak Italian and we're from Japan so we have no idea about tipping at all. So a guided tour about things to eat in Venice and wine to sample would be amazing.

      Do you have any recommended or tried & tested food tours in Venice we could do?

      What can we do/visit with our extra 3 nights?

      Italy Yesterday

      We wish to visit a place that has a different vibe from Venice and Florence -- A city that is NOT mainly museums and churches. So Verona or Bologna (most definitely Rome) is 'out', we'll visit them next time. We want somewhere relaxing, but not as far as the Dolomites.

      Backgrounder: My wife and I are going on a 14-day vacation in Italy this August. After much brainstorming, we've FINALLY decided on an itinerary which would begin with 3 romantic nights in Venice, then 3 exciting nights in Florence, and capped off with 4 comfortable nights in Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore). But we still have an extra 3 nights (or 4 days) left.

      Do you have any suggestions?

      (By the way, we'll fly into Venice from Japan and fly back home from Pisa)

      From Florence, where could we spend our 5 days (4 nights) next?

      Italy Mar 26, 2015 at 10:13 PM

      My wife and I are planning to go on a 2-week casual trip to Italy this August. The time might not be ideal (hot and crowded) but we have 5 months in advance to prepare for that. We will be coming from Japan and this will be our first time in Europe. We haven't booked our flights yet, so our plan is super flexible. This is what we have planned so far:

      • Fly into Venice (3 nights)
      • Train to Sirmione (3 nights)
      • Train to Florence (3 nights)
      • Train to ?????? (4 nights)
      • Fly back home

      We want to stay somewhere we can rest our feet and just laze around near the water. We planned to go to Greece (Mykonos or Santorini) but it will eat so much time, money, and effort. So we decided to just stay in Italy instead, maybe Cinque Terre. But people said that we'd get "bored" there. Hmmm...

      Do you have any suggestions where we can stay and relax for 5 days (4 nights)? By the water (especially a beach) would be ideal. It'd be a plus if the last place is a train ride away from an international airport too, so we could use it to fly back to Japan. Thank you.

      Hi all,

      1) what bus/buses should i take if i would like to have a 1 day trip from Venice to Cortina? Please inform what is the website and specify the station name i should take from Venice to Cortina?

      2) is the bus station at Cortina the town itself? if not, how do i get there? how much? And would i be able to see all the beautiful landscape/alps/mountains? Or i would need to go outskirts? If yes, how do i go?

      3) is 1 day to spend at the town of Cortina too long? Would you recommend any stopovers along the way from Venice to Cortina?

      4) I am going with a group of 7 people, if i were to take the 1 day tours or book a van from Venice to Cortina, which tour company or van company would you recommend? and which is cheaper?

      thank you so much for answering these questions.
