    • Which car rental agency is open Friday evening (25/9) and close to a train to Lerici?

      Tuscany 4 hours ago

      Trying to return our rental car after a long day of travelling from San Gimignano to Lucca to a quick photo op in Pisa and on to our hotel near the Cinque Terre in Lerici. We don't need the car for the rest of our journey, though we do have hotel parking in Lerici. It's almost impossible to return a car in LaSpezia on the weekend (closed Sunday, some closed Saturday or half day...), so we thought maybe in Pisa on Friday? Is there a car rental agency open on Friday early evening in Pisa? Is there a train to Lerici? How late? Is there a car rental agency close to the train station? Thanks so much in advance for any help.

      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.

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...

      I am travelling from Avignon to Levanto by train with a 10 minute change at Nice Ville and a 19 minute change at Ventimiglia if I want to catch the Intercity to Levanto. As all the connections depend on the trains being on time I thought maybe I would be better grabbing something to eat at Ventimiglia station and catching the Regional train which departs later and has no changes. Does anyone know what the facilities are like at Ventimiglia station how easy is it to buy rail tickets there and how comfortable is the regional train as it seems to stop every 5 minutes but al least I don't have any changes. How busy is it likely to be beginning of May as I will have already been travelling 6 hours by train and looking to another four and a half on this train. Has anyone been on it?

      Pickpockets in Ventimiglia train station

      by danhec Online Now Sep 4, 2013 at 4:29 AM

      I wear cargo pants and my wallet is always in a side pocket closed with strong Velcro. I thought that was safe until my trip on Friday August 30, 2013.

      That afternoon, in Ventimiglia station, while I was about to board the train, suddenly two men came out of nowhere and quickly helped me with my heavy suitcase and knapsack. I appreciated the gesture although I found it strange that I had not seen them coming and that they did not stay on the train after helping me.

      It’s only the next morning that I discovered that my wallet was missing. I know for sure that my wallet was in my pocket when I intended to board the train, and that between Ventimiglia and my destination, I did not take it out of my pocket. The Velcro makes it hard to open the pocket and the scratch noise is loud. However, when pulled quickly with force, it’s not as noticeable especially in a noisy environment and among confusion.

      Being careful is not enough if one is not totally aware of one’s environment especially in high theft zones. Coincidentally, after I related my story to my sister who lives in France, she told me that the day before she had just watched a TV programme about thefts on the trains between Nice and Ventimiglia, describing my experience. I wish I had seen that programme before boarding my train!

      Rosata, saved the link, but I am afraid I cannot ask them to open the church specially for me free of charge in crisis times, and I cannot afford an individual tour either.
      Anyway, one bus in an hour – that’s way too rare, and as it is just 10 minutes’ drive the taxi won’t be too expensive.
      The point is – is there a taxi in Ventimiglia? I’ve never seen any. And how does one hail it?
