    • Car Hire from Parma to Vernazza??

      Italy Apr 14, 2014 at 10:42 AM

      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.

      Cappelletti con panna, Cannoli alla crema, and Erbazzone

      Bologna Apr 3, 2014 at 11:23 AM

      Hi Everyone,

      I was wondering if anyone can recommend locations in Bologna where I can eat cappelletti con panna, cannoli alla crema, and erbazzone? I had these many years ago in Reggio Emilia. I will be in Bologna for two days this summer and I was hoping I might find these delicous foods there rather than having to travel to Reggio Emilia? Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated! Thanks and Kind Regards! :)

      Matera hotels?

      by SandiM Online Now Aug 25, 2011 at 7:55 PM

      Are you familiar with Matera? We may be in the city for 2 nights to do some photo-shooting, and I'd like to know what hotels you can recommend that have cave bedrooms and spectacular views of the town (I'm cheating on a couple of the photos, to shoot them from my bedroom window!). I don't mind if it's pricey, but it has to be worth the cost. I'm leaning toward the Hotel Sassi, and recent reviews of the place are favorable.

      Travel to and 'after' Matera

      Hello, Probably I'll visit Italy (Matera and Grotole) for this year's Christmas. I'll spend there about one week. My questions are in the field 'How to reach... .': I can fly to Milan or Rome. Can you help me - where it is easier to reach Matera? Is it better by train, or, probably busses are more convenient? After that I have to leave for Grotole. How is the public transport? Do you think I'll manage knowing almost any Italian? Thanks for your help, and greetings from Bulgaria. You are welcome if you are coming here. Have a nice day, Lillyia
