    • From Tropea / Reggio Calabria to Stromboli / Volcano

      Tropea Yesterday

      Hi,
      we will be in Zambrone since 15/06 till 20/06.

      Do You think there will be a chance to hike near the volcano of Stromboli in this timing?
      I read that the ferries are starting since 20/06. Maybe some small agency can offer this trip....?

      But I am not interessted in one of those mentioned trips, where You can just visit the Stromboli for 1 hour and use it for shopping or something and then You can see the island just from the boat. We would like to have a hiking trip to see it really from the top.

      We will have a car, so we can depart from both areas, Tropea or Reggio Calabria.

      If there will be a combination let's say with Volcano island, it would be completely perfect. But this would not be probably possible to combine during one day.

      Thanks in advance for Your advices and recommendations or experiences.

      S.

    • AREA to stay in Elba

      Isola d' Elba Apr 9, 2015 at 4:25 AM

      Travelling to Elba with my Mum and Dad at the end of May, beginning of June.

      Due to the Bus time tables from Florence, we would be on Elba for 4nights.

      Ideally like to pick 1 hotel for the 4nights, and do day trips from that base.

      Tried to research the best area to stay in Elba, with no luck. Suggestions seem to be;

      Marina di Campo/ Porto Azzuro/ Cavoli.

      Obviously I need to narrow it down to 1.
      They are both 50yrs old, we would like to see all of the 'touristy' things that Elba has to offer, and also a couple of walks, and a beach.

      So in short, best AREA to stay in Elba.

      Thanks

      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.

      Hello,

      My husband and I are attempting to reserve the earliest bus departing Courmayeur for our upcoming trip in August, on a Thursday morning. We are having difficulty booking it on the savda.it website, however, and were hoping somebody could provide some insight and help. When trying to reserve the earliest bus, at 6:45 am, we get an error message: "La tratta 058561->010001 utilizzata sulla corsa 36398 non è tariffabile," which translates on google translate to "Trafficking 058561 -> 010001 used on race and pricing, not 36,398." An "x" appears where we would select that bus, and we can not book it.

      Any thoughts/suggestions?

      We do seem able to reserve a later bus, however this would mean us missing our connection in Aosta.

      Thank you in advance for helping us out in this frustrating situation!
