    • Hiking around Pale di San Martino

      Dolomiti Feb 2, 2016 at 11:33 AM

      Hi - We're planning a few days' hike in the Dolomites, in Pale di San Martino, and I did help planning it.... I did a lovely hike about 20 years ago - but I can't remember the details... I know at least a par of it was part of the Alte Via 2. I started with the cable car from San Martino to Rosetta hut, then walked about 3 hours to another hut, stayed the night there, and continued next day to another hut, from there came down and found my way back to San Martino... I'm almost sure the first hut was Pradidali, but I have no idea which was the second one... I would like to do something similar this year - in July - but need more info about trails and huts. Any suggestion for a trek that starts with this cable car, then has about 3-4 hours of walking to the next hut where we can spend the night, and from which we can continue to another trail of 3-4 hours to another hut - from which we can walk back to San Martino - will be very much appreciated. Another option is to stay 2 nights in the same mountain hut - and doing a day walk in between.

      So I need advice on -

      Option A: San Martino - cable car - Rosetta - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 2 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep downhill) , back to - San Martino

      Option B: San Martino - cable car - Rosetta - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep) back to Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep downhill) , back to - San Martino Thanks a lot in advance, Ana.

    • Rental car Sardinia --> Corsica posisble?

      Sardegna Jan 17, 2016 at 12:40 PM

      Hi,

      We are planning 3 weeks for Sardinia. As this is a bit long, we wish to combine it with Corsica. Idea is to fly into Corsica and out of Sardinia (or vice versa). But can anyone please advice on the most logical thing to do with the rental car? Can we collect in Sardina and hand in in Corsica, to save the travel back time and ferry costs?

      For short: travel-time is June '16, family of 4 (2 kids of 2 and 4 yrs), have own car-seats with us.

      Thanks guys!

      Robin.

    • 1 week in Tuscany / Le Marche

      Le Marche Yesterday

      Hey there.

      My wife and I are celebrating our 1st Anniversary with 1 week in Italy. Apr 6 - 13th. Flying in and out of Florence. 24hr layover in Amsterdam. :-)

      We've been to Venice, Rome, Cinque Terre, Naples and Sicily before but not the Tuscany region.

      We're both early 30s, quiet and will be renting a car in Florence. We're thinking a couple days in Florence then rent the car and explore Tuscany.

      We'd love to visit San Marino (just love those tiny countries), see some of Le Marche (up for suggestions) and then just explore the hillside towns throughout Tuscany. She wants to stop at a vinyard or two and I'd love to taste some amazing olive oil + focaccia bread (my fav!).

      Any suggestions that pop to mind, please let me know. We haven't even really started looking into this yet.. in the middle of a move and other things.

      Thanks!

Any other recommendations from those who done it or those who live in the area? I will be in Venice April 3 through April 9. Since it is my eleventh visit to Venice, I could spare one day and leave my beloved Serenisima to visit Cremona. Is it possible/feasible? leaving Venice in the morning and coming back by night time, having at least three hours for Cremona? Kinda seems impossible, but let's try...

Is it best to drive from Florence to Montepulciano and then to Venice or to take the train or combination of both? If rent a car, is it best to hire a driver?

      Thanks

    • Easter Sunday Dinner - recommendations

      Rome Jan 18, 2016 at 11:33 AM

      We will be in Rome for Easter this year, any recommendations on a "reasonably" priced Easter Dinner after Mass?
      Trattoria would be preferred.
      Also, looking for a smaller church for Mass on Sunday?
      We will be staying near Barberini station, but, have no problem travelling in Rome!

    • Car rentals in Benevento

      Benevento Jan 18, 2016 at 11:29 AM

      We need a car for a couple of days in March, found Hertz right in Benevento but the price is a little outrageous compared to other areas of Campagnia. Are there any other options in Benevento?
      Thanks

    • Rental car Sardinia --> Corsica posisble?

      Sardegna Jan 17, 2016 at 12:40 PM

      Hi,

      We are planning 3 weeks for Sardinia. As this is a bit long, we wish to combine it with Corsica. Idea is to fly into Corsica and out of Sardinia (or vice versa). But can anyone please advice on the most logical thing to do with the rental car? Can we collect in Sardina and hand in in Corsica, to save the travel back time and ferry costs?

      For short: travel-time is June '16, family of 4 (2 kids of 2 and 4 yrs), have own car-seats with us.

      Thanks guys!

      Robin.

    • Weather /road conditions November

      Italy Jan 16, 2016 at 3:21 PM

      Thinking of taking a break in November to Italy - we've done Florence/Rome/Venice but are a little concerned about the road conditions given that there are a lot of mountainous roads. Suggestions please from people who have driven in Italy at this time of the year. Weather looks good in Sicily at this time of the year.
