      transfer from Naples to Matera

      Italy 5 hours ago

      In April I am planning to travel from Naples to Matera but as I cannot leave until the evening I may have to stop somewhere on the way. Does anyone know of any buses that do this journey? Can anyone recommend an interesting place to stay en route?

    • enough time for transfer ferry from Santa Teresa di Gallura

      Porto Torres Mar 2, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      We arrive with Grimaldi ferry from Barcelona to Porto Torres on 22th August at 11.30am. We want to get a ferry from Santa Teresa to Bonifacio with Moby ferrys at 15h. We have seen in google maps that the journey by road from Porto Torres to Santa Teresa is about 1h44m so I guess that would have enough time to get the 15h ferry.

      Can anyone confirm this?

      Garda with 3 and 1 year old

      Garda 6 hours ago


      We are planning a holiday to Garda in mid September. We will be flying in to Milan linate and thinking of staying at Del Garda village and camping. Any reviews on this accommodation in September? Also what would be the best way to get from the airport to here as it's a 1.5 hr drive. Is there a bus/ train? If transport is safe and reliable then we won't bother renting a car to avoid hassles of car seats etc as we won't be exploring that much. We were thinking of visiting Gardaland for sure.. Is one day enough or could we do two? We were also interested in the aquarium as our sons love it....but saw a comment they don't allow pushchairs in! Is this true??

      They would also love Parco natura viva....but do you need to have your own car to visit?

      Where else would you suggest? We are staying 5 nights.

      any answers to all my questions are appreciated!! :)

      Hi all,

      1) what bus/buses should i take if i would like to have a 1 day trip from Venice to Cortina? Please inform what is the website and specify the station name i should take from Venice to Cortina?

      2) is the bus station at Cortina the town itself? if not, how do i get there? how much? And would i be able to see all the beautiful landscape/alps/mountains? Or i would need to go outskirts? If yes, how do i go?

      3) is 1 day to spend at the town of Cortina too long? Would you recommend any stopovers along the way from Venice to Cortina?

      4) I am going with a group of 7 people, if i were to take the 1 day tours or book a van from Venice to Cortina, which tour company or van company would you recommend? and which is cheaper?

      thank you so much for answering these questions.

    • Best train station to go to after docking in Civitavecchia to head to Venice

      Civitavecchia 15 hours ago

      We will be docking in Civitavecchia, from there two of three couples are getting a car service up to Florence to finish their trip. One couple is heading to Venice. Would it make sense to tag along up to Florence and take the train from there to Venice, or head to Rome to take the train. I realize that Rome is closer to the port, but wondering if the craziness there would make for a more difficult commute.

      Car rental in or near Montepulciano

      Italy Mar 19, 2015 at 7:47 AM


      We are taking a train from Rome up towards Montepulciano and Tuscany. I figure getting off the train in Montepulciano is a good place to stop and rent a car. We plan to get a place to stay out in the countryside or out near Montefollonico or Montalcino.

      Does this sound like a good approach?

    • Driving , Pietrelcina to St. Giovanni Rotondo

      by fitrav Online Now Jun 4, 2010 at 12:05 AM

      We will be driving from Naples to St. Giovanni Rotondo on Sunday 13th June and we would like to visit Pietrelcina on the way.

      The way off the motor ways from Pietrelcina (on the back roads) is much shorter (but longer in hours) It seems that the recommended route is on the motorways but my question is, If we went through the country roads, (?through mountains) would it be ok, if we weren't worried about time? Is there anyone who has driven this route that is much shorter in distance? What are the roads like?
      Thank you.
