    • road from Cortina to Venice

      we'll return our car in Mestre at noon. We leave Cortina after breakfast (after 11 days in the Lakes and Dolomites).
      The tripfrom Cortina to Venice is about 2 hours, so we have about 1-2(-3 ? maybe) spare hours.
      Any suggestions for nice places to stop and see on our way to Venice? And an evaluation of time for each of them.

      Also, best times to go/not go?

    • Des this Itinerary look OK? Tuscany + CT

      Tuscany Aug 28, 2015 at 2:33 AM

      I'm travelling with my two kids, 19 and 21, in September and would love some feedback on the following itinerary. Trying to keep costs low. We like views, walking, biking, wine/olive oil/cheese stops, nature sites with water, beaches.
      Mon 21: late night arrival Florence
      Tues 22: florence
      Wed 23: florence
      Thur 24: EITHER bike tour around Tuscany that leaves from Florence with a company, wine tasting and some other nice activities but 80 euros each (!) OR go back to the Florence airport by bus (20 Euros each?) and rent a car for two days. First day: Siena, Montelcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and maybe others. Where to stay if we rent a car? I prefer not to drive back into Florence but want to get to Pisa + LaSpezia the next day.
      If we take the bike tour we would go back to Florence for the night.
      Fri 25: take/continue with car to Lucca (bike ride on walls), Pisa (photo op and stroll), possibly a beach stop (?) and return car in LaSpezia. Stay in area of LaSpezia, possibly Lerici or take the ferry or train to Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre in the evening.
      Sat 26: hike in Cinque Terre
      Sun 27: more Cinque Terre, maybe switch to Monterossa hotel for beach
      Mon 28: more Cinque Terre, train to Genoa early evening and sleep near airport in Genoa
      Tues 29: 8am flight home from Genoa
      Any comments would be highly appreciated!! Thanks.

      Hi,

      I plan to travel to Sardinia the 2 last weeks of december this year. I don't drive; buses are ok but the freedom limited. So I thought maybe I could hire a island native and his private car for 2 or 3 days to drive me around. Good for me and it could be good also for a Sardinian willing to earn a little extra cash?

      I don't know how to go about it and I wish to have already a contact before landing there. An idea anybody? Thankx

      My question is more directed to the local population I guess...

      Best regards,

      I live in Los Angeles, so all European flights are not easy. Most likely will have to get to Rome and from there - to Naples. What's the best way of getting to Proceda from Naples? All details on ferry will be helpful. Also - how do I rent a room - in private sector or in a hotel - what would be better? I would want to stay for over a week. Solo traveler.

      Lago d' Orta Aug 12, 2013 at 1:43 PM

      My husband and I are flying from JFK to Linate and don't know which lake to stay at. We are in our
      late 70s and fit, although I have difficulty climbing steep hills., but in general I have no limitations.
      I was sold on Maggiore until I started reading reviews that Orta was charming and romantic and now
      I'm confused. We stayed in Como a couple of years ago and loved it. Would you recommend staying
      2 nights in each as a compromise? We like good food, Villa Crespi has some good specials but the
      prices are a tad steep and I wonder if it's worth it. Would it be smarter to stay in town and have the
      restaurants close by? We will have a car and we're used to driving all over Italy...we have been in the
      country quite a bit and love everything about it. I want to go to the factory outlets and have read about
      the Lora Piana and Colombo Cashmere and Alessi as places to shop. Any comments about any of this
      will be very much appreciated! And I thank you in advance! We are going to be there from Sept. 10-14
