Hi! We are staying in a vineyard B&B in Calmasino, am wandering how long it would take to drive to Malcesine from there? We have only one and a half days and we wish to have a short boat trip maybe to Limone and a trip up Monte Baldo. Any answers would be greatly appreciated!
While in Venice, we are staying in the Ghetto region. Looking for suggestions for lunch and dinner in that area or close by as we aren't all that mobile; we want to walk no more than a km for a meal. Looking for mid-range rather casual restaurants. Also in Florence for a week. There we are located near the Bargello National Museum. Suggestions welcome.
Somewhere recently I read about a palace approx. 45 minutes from Marco Polo Airport and the same distance from Padua. It was the Italian version of Versailles - I think it was called Stiggi or something very similar - and had 109 rooms - try as I might I can't find anything about this beautiful palace. All suggestions much appreciated. Thanx
I've received great advice on visiting Murano, Burano & Torcello recently & hope to extend my search for itinerary suggestions (3 Aussie adults /54 +) during a brief 3 night / 2.5 day stay in Venice. Arriving 1.30pm, staying in San Polo, keen food, coffee & wine consumers, love a little history & art but also keen to see the real (& less touristy) Venice. No time to waste in long queue's, any pre-booked must see's, restaurant, cafe, tour suggestions welcomed. I've contacted heaps of private tour companies and am kind of shocked at the excessively high costs!
We will be leaving via train to Milan on route to Bellagio - wondering if Verona is worth a stop on the way?
Many thanks in advance.
Hi, Everyone! I'll be in Venice in late November and need advice as to which sestiere I should stay in. I'll be renting an apartment or home so I am not interested in hotels. I'm currently favoring Dosoduro but I would really appreciate more info on the others! Thank you!
My daughter (19) is supposed to attend a program a program in Italy for four weeks. She's never been there before. She has to fly into Venice, then catch a bus (20-25 minute ride) to the train station for a 1-1.5 hour ride to Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza and walk to Hotel del Ponte. She will be there for weeks one and four. For weeks two and three, they will be moving to College Valmarana Morosini (in Altavilla Vicentina, Vicenza). I'm not too concerned ince she meets up with the group in Bassano. It's just getting from the airport to Bassano alone. At some point they will be traveling to Milan (Ca’ Del Bosco, Franciacorta) and the director suggested my daughter could fly into Milan but then it would be a 3.5 hr train ride to Bassano. I wanted to fly over with her, but I can't fford to do so. Thank you!
We hope to spend a morning (or longer?) visiting Murano & Burano & we'd appreciate any inside information for first time, Aussie visitors to Venice. Having researched a number of sites, it appears doable without a tour (our preference). Are vaporetto tickets easily purchased & would we be best to travel in the early morning to try & beat the crowds? Any tourist traps to avoid on Morano & is it possible to view a glass blowing demonstration without the hard sell afterwards?
Many thanks for any helpful suggestions
