      The Snow miracle on August 5th

      Rome 6 hours ago

      Hi all guys, for those of you who happen to be in Rome on August 5th here's a small story you might be interested...

      In the fourth century, under Pope Liberius, a noble named Giovanni with his wife, having no children they decided to offer all their whealth to the Holy Virgin for the construction of a church dedicated to her. Our Lady appreciated their desire and appeared them in a dream the night between 4 and 5 August, indicating the place where the church would be built. The following morning they went to the Pope to tell the dream made ​​by both, even the pope had the same dream: the Virgin told him the next morning would be an absolutely unusual event happened, and where it had happened, there would have had to build the church.
      The next day, on August 5, 352 AC, full summertime, all the Romans were stunned: they found the Esquiline hill completely covered in snow.
      Well, belive it or not, if you are in Piazza di Santa Maria Maggiore (also know as Madonna della Neve, i.e. Virgin of the snow) at 9 p.m. on August 5th every year you will find yourself under a "real" snowfall!

      Enjoy Rome;-)

    • Beach in Vietri sul Mare and Sorento

      Vietri sul Mare Jul 26, 2016 at 12:44 AM

      We plan to stay 14 days in Salerno at the end of august and first half of September. So we planned to visit all the major towns on the Amalfi coast but to have some sunbathing on La Baia beach in Vietri sul mare.

      1) Can anyone tell me what are the prices of a parasol + sunbeds for 2 people on La Baia beach in Vietri sul mare and is it far from the bus stops?

      2) Are there any sandy beaches in Salerno? What are the prices? Where are they situated?

      Thank you in advance for your answers!

      What is Alghero like for teenage boys. We will be travelling with a 16 and 14 year old. They are very active - love soccer, surfing, skating. They'll need a bit of freedom if they are to have a good time. Is Alghero safe for them to go off on their own? Are there parks where they can kick a ball around? A beach they can go swimming at? Also what is Sardegna like generally for cycling from place to place...

      we will arrive at Alghero Airport very late in the evening (23:55 p.m). Does anybody know a good transportation then - the busses are running only until 23:00 pm and as far as I figured out the car rentals are closing also at 23:00 pm and you have to pay extra fee then if you still want to rent a car. How much would a taxi cost and is it wise to reserve one in advance? Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

      What about public transport? Are buses accessible or should we take a taxi for getting around?

      Any advice for wheelchair accessible hotels maybe?
