    • Mountain biking this December

      Torbole Nov 22, 2014 at 2:26 PM

      Hi all. Does anyone know how safe it is to mountain bike in and around Lake Garda and Torbole in Dec? My son will be traveling there with the express desire to mountain bike. I worry that he won't be able to hire a guide and therefore bike alone on trails he knows nothing about in a country where he knows no one.

      He has already secured a bike but I visualize mountains covered with ice and snow and unmarked areas with huge drop offs! Yes, I am mom!

      Thanks all!!

      We (family of 4 - 2 aduls, 2 teenage daughters) are considering either Villa Belvedere or Villa Angela. Both look extremely lovely, and I just can't decide! I know they are located in different areas, Belvedere closer to town and Angela up in the hills. I do not know how much of a difference this will really make to us once we are there. Please share any opinions

    • Getting to Positano from Naples

      Positano Nov 5, 2014 at 7:45 AM

      Hello,

      I'm planning a visit to Sorrento and Positano for next Friday. We will be staying in Naples and plan to take the Circumvesuviana from Naples to Sorrento. We thought it might be nice to wander around Sorrento for awhile before boarding a bus to Positano. I'm having a hard time understanding the SITA time table in regards to bus times to and from Positano. This is the last day of our trip, so it's important that we don't get stuck in Positano. Does anyone know what time the buses run until? Or any other advice for traveling from Naples to Positano or suggestions on must-see's would be appreciated!!

      Road trip December

      Emilia-Romagna Nov 26, 2014 at 9:51 AM

      Hello!
      My husband and I are deciding about traveling to Emilia Romagna in 2 days. The weather forecast seemed much better a few days ago but after checking it today, the surprise was not very good... Of course it will be cold but what worries us most is the rain as we were thinking on renting a car to visit several towns.
      The plan was to fly to Venice to pick up the rental car there. we are not staying in Venice. From there we'd visit Padova, Ferrara, Mantova, Piacenza, Parma, Modena and Ravenna. We were thinking on sleeping in different locations along the way, instead of having a base in one place only. The departure flight would be from Bologna.
      Our main question is: should we be worried about drive/road conditions? Are there some segments to avoid? Should we be prepared to icy roads or are they mainly in the high regions? We've never drove in the North so we are a bit uneasy after checking the weather conditions.
      Regarding these towns, does someone have any particular recommendation?
      Thank you very much for all the advice you can give us!
      Best,
      Tânia

      (Not my merit, VTer @Tuzik, Olga, found it and posted this on FB:
      edition.cnn.com/2014/11/21/t...
      Quoted from this article written Nov 21, 2014 by Barry Neild, CNN:

      • City officials have become so tired with the cacophony of rumbling luggage they're introducing fines of up to 500 euros ($620) for anyone caught using one.

      The move, due to come into effect in May 2015, is likely to create a headache for many of 22 million who annually visit the city and need to cart bags to hotels in car-free streets.*

      • The new rules, which will require luggage to be transported on quieter air-filled tires, are the idea of City Commissioner Victor Zapparlorto, according to the Il Messaggero newspaper."
