    • Car Hire from Parma to Vernazza??

      Hi everyone,

      We are staying in Parma for a few days then heading to Vernazza for a few more days. We are planning on taking the train, however I thought it would be interesting to drive it. This would happen in about 6 weeks from now. The countryside should be beautiful and the viewing better by car rather than by train, I thought would be better. So here is my question, does anyone know of a hire car company, we could hire to take us there, and how much this might cost? I am just doing some exploring at this stage but very curious what people think of the idea. It might be way out of reason for the cost, but you never know till you ask.

      Thanks everyone for their help and suggestions.

      Day trip to Siena and other Tuscan town(s) using Public Transport from Florence

      Tuscany Yesterday

      Hi friends

      I will be staying in Florence for 4 nights in the month of May. I plan to sightsee Florence on 2 days and take a day trip to Lucca and Pisa on the 3rd day. On my 4th day I wish to visit Siena and some picturesque countryside which is often associated with Tuscany. Also in the afternoon I would like to do some Wine Tasting at a decent vineyard. I have heard Chianti is the place for wine and is between Florence and Siena. However, I would need to do this using Public transport. Please let me know if this can and should be done using Public transport or should I consider spending more to rent a car with a guide or a guided tour. I do not have any knowledge of any Tuscan town which could be combined with Siena for the above, so I am open to all suggestions.

      Thank you

      Hello :) We are headed to Roma this weekend and would like to visit the site of the Mormon temple that is under construction there, but I cannot find its location on Mormon.org. I know the church kind of likes to keep the location of its new temples under wraps until they are open to the public, so I'm hoping that someone who has seen the new site or lives in Rome and knows where it is could share its location so that we can visit while we are there. Does anyone know where it is?

      4 days Rome and Pompeii

      Rome Apr 12, 2014 at 9:30 AM

      I have allocated 4 days 4 nights for Rome and Pompeii for my 11 days Italy tour, have some specific questions

      1. Is it better to stay all 4 nights in Rome and make a day trip to Pompeii? I was thinking 3 night stay in Rome, then 1 night in Pompeii (heading Florence next). Which is better?

      2. Is it better better to get the Omnia Vatican and Rome Card or the Roma Pass? I have checked the website and they look similar to me - looking for some feedback from people who purchased and used them previously

      3. Any specials on certain days to take note of? I should be arriving on a Wednesday morning.

      4. How are the trains route like - i.e. better to travel day time or night time? Are the train rides scenic (Rome-Pompeii-Florence-Milan-Venice)

      Any useful tips would be appreciated. Thanks :)

      Day 1 Arrive in Rome, 3 night stay in Rome, head to Pompeii on Day 4
      Day 4 Explore Pompeii, 1 night stay
      Day 5 Train to Florence, 3 night stay in Florence with Day trip to Pisa
      Day 8 Train to Milan, 2 night stay
      Day 10 Train to Venice, 3 night stay

      Is the above enough to cover the essentials being first time in Italy? I understand the above is more like a classic itenary, let me know if I can squeeze in more within those 11 days (if you think I should cut short some stay to include 1 more city, let me know)

      Will post more specific questions on the cities forum.
