    • Pinger in Italy

      by wanderlustig Online Now Apr 12, 2014 at 10:00 PM

      Does anyone know for sure whether the Pinger phone/texting app is supported in Italy? We live in the US and will soon be in Italy (Rome and Siena) for three weeks. I would like to avoid international charges on my iphone. But I can't seem to find a website that tells me if Italy has Pinger. The app is free and it looks like you can call and text to the US from many countries free of charge with WiFi. But I can't find a way to know if Italy is one of those countries. Thanks for any help you can give!

    • Siena Railway Station from Borgo la Chiusa

      by wanderlustig Online Now Mar 14, 2014 at 6:27 PM

      Does anyone know how to get to the Siena railway station from Borgo la Chiusa, which is near Siena? From what I can tell from the directions to the Borgo, the Borgo is west and a little South of Siena (very close to Siena) just off of SS73 Aretina. The directions to the Borgo, where we will be staying, say "exit at Siena Ovest and turn right on SS73 Aretina". We are driving to the Borgo, but want to take the train to Florence and back for a couple of days and would like to know how we can get to the train station from the Borgo. We can't seem to find directions on the internet . We can't even figure it out on our map. Thank you for any help you can give. We want to take the train, not the bus, because we won't be leaving from the city center of Siena and a travel companion will have to take us to the station.

      Hi there! We are leaving Rome on a Sunday and finding it difficult to rent a car - all closed - so thinking next best option is train from Rome to Seina, then taking a taxi to our hotel outside Seina (10KM away), and returning Monday to rent a car. Thoughts? Our hotel is 10KM from Seina - we were going to rent a car for four days to get to Orvieto, Assissi, etc. Thoughts and suggestions are so very welcome! Thanks in advance. -

    • Siena to Assisi by bus in October?

      by travellover18 Online Now Jul 29, 2013 at 6:57 PM

      Hi,

      Does anyone know about what buses will get you from Siena to Assisi? I checked on the Sitabus.it website and it says that there's a bus available this Saturday leaving at 5:30. However, when I checked for the October 12 date that I want, there's none available--I've also emailed the Sitabus info site and they also say that there's no buses connecting the two cities--is that true? Or is the website just not updated for a later date?

      Thanks for the help!

      Siena - Arriving/Exploring/Renting a Car

      by Krakken232 Online Now Mar 3, 2013 at 7:50 PM

      Hello! We will be staying in an agriturismo near Siena for three nights in June, and we will be travelling there from Rome after having spent four nights in Rome. I'm trying to work out the logistics of what we want to do in my head and I am having troubles. Basically, we will be renting a car to get us to the agriturismo and spend the next two or three days driving all around Tuscany. BUT, I would also like to spend four or five hours exploring Siena's city center while we are there (since parking is apparently a nightmare, it made sense to me to have a time in Siena first, and rent our car after we're done). It seems to be working down to three options:

      1) Take the train from Rome to Siena - good because the train station is close to the car rental place. Leave our two backpacks in storage lockers somewhere, bus into town, enjoy Siena, bus back down and take our car and leave.

      2) Take the bus to Siena - good because it is less hassle and arrives in the middle of Siena. Don't really know what we would do with our packs all day (unless there are lockers somewhere in the city center), then take a bus down the hill to the car places, rent our car and leave.

      3) Rent a car in Rome, drive straight to our agriturismo, then try and find parking and deal with the hassle of actually getting into Siena while already possessing our rental car.

      Things to take into consideration are neither of us has ever been to Italy or driven in Europe before -- having our introduction to European driving being a three hour journey out of a huge city is daunting to me, to say the least. It seems like a lot of back and forth to rent the car in Siena (train station to town to train station to rental place, etc..., since from what I've read it's tough walking to Hertz or wherever from the train station due to the busy streets between them) -- but it can't be THAT bad can it? Any advice?
