    • Evenings in Griante

      Cadenabbia di Griante Jan 11, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      We are hoping to travel to Lake Como this summer and are looking at the possibility of staying in Griante. Is there enough buzz in the evenings. We do not look for entertainment but like to potter about, perhaps a few shops and of course spend the evening dining but do like a 'buzz' and people watching. Is this typical of this area.

    • Transit to Ski Tonale Pass or Presena Glacier

      Hi, would like to make a Saturday ski excursion in and around Tonale Pass, more so the Presena Glacier. I can see a train from Brescia will get me as far as Edolo. But what after that?

      Are there shuttles that will get me to the Ski basin from the train station in Edolo as well as carried back?
      Any insights into making this little ski stint a fun experience greatly appreciated. Would be even better if there was a ski/bus tour out of Brescia directly to the ski basin but I just haven't been able to find it.

    • Searching for a specifik hotel in Ischia!! Please help me!

      Ischia Jan 7, 2015 at 12:30 PM

      I'm searching for a hotel in the Ischia and I would really appreciate if you could help me find it.

      It's a 4 star hotel/resort when it's full there can be around 400-500 guests at least.

      The hotel is u-shaped and has bungalows in front of the main building, on the other side of a parking space,

      I think it's quite a big complex, when guests are going to stay in one of the bungalows one of the staff will take you to your room in something similar to a golf car.

      It has 5 floors

      It has a spa with emotional showers and jacuzzi baths/thermal baths,

      The hotel has two restaurants for the customers and two bars, one pool bar and one bar inside.

      The hotel is open right now but it is closing this week for 3,5 weeks for maintenance.

      Outisde of the hotel, very close, there is another restaurant that is not with the hotel but many hotel guests go there, it's like a disco bar restaurant/pizzera where people can both eat, drink and dance.

      The hotel has bed and breakfast, half board and full board.

      When guests arrive late in the evening and they have booked HB or FB, they get a cold dinner plate served for them.

      The hotel has glass doors in the entrance and the floor is blue and beige tiles, the reception desk is white,

      The reception area/lobby have a beautiful ceiling and arched roof between the rooms.

      It's a family run hotel and the owners are old over 60 or 70 years old and they still work there.

      It has 24 hours reception service.

      My fiance and I are planning our Honeymoon and would like to base it around a timeshare week in Tropea the last week of September. We plan on flying into Rome, spending a couple days there then driving to Naples where we would rent a car and drive to Tropea. We would love to spend time on the Amalfi coast/Capri/Sorrento but would have this week long time share in Tropea. We are planning on spending 10 days total in Italy. Can anyone give some insight on what the best way to do Rome/Napels/Tropea? Once in Tropea, would it be worth it to go back up to Naples for a day or two or should we get it out of the way on the way down to Tropea? Any suggestions on what we could do in the Tropea area for a week? We are on a budget and just want to make our trip the most efficient :-) Thanks for your help!

      Important Notice: New bag restrictions

      Rome Jan 27, 2015 at 11:37 AM

      http://www.coopculture.it/en/ is informing visitors, tour guides and school groups that for security reasons, backpacks, large handbags and luggage are not allowed inside the excavations at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum in Rome.  Actual dimensions of allowable bags has not yet been determined for these sites but have been recently restricted to 30x30x15 cm (abt 12 x 12 x 6") or smaller at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplonti, Stabia and the Museum of Boscoreale so that might be a good guidline until further notice.

      Visitors to Rome are asked leave larger items at their hotel or check them at the left-luggage office at Termini. Additonally, if you have scheduled a tour at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum, you're asked to arrive 30 minutes beforehand to ensure timely passage through security checks.

      Hallo my friends. We will travel to Naples from Rome for a day trip by train, specifically for the Capodimonte museum and one or two churches. But I am shocked with most of the reviews I read about crime cases...I mean pickpockets etc. I would like to ask
      1. In order to get to Capodimonte Museum do you think a taxi ride would be better than a bus? But then, what about money? I'm afraid we might get ribbed off by the taxi driver...I don't know what the price should approxemately be.
      2. If we decide to get a hop on hop off tour, which company should we trust in order to have a good experience?
