      Padova Sep 24, 2016 at 7:34 AM

      Hi everyone, I am new here and I am not realy familiar with the "Protocol".
      Well, I am about to come to Padova and live there, as there is a job offered to me at the University. So, not knowing anything about the city, i would like to have some information, concerning a cheap place to stay for the first days, or the areas that are ok to rent a house. And of course, how much -approximately- is the rental cost of a small house with one room!

      We will be in Naples for a day in early November as part of a cruise. Which sites or landmarks should we visit in priority in the center of the city (we went to Pompei and Almafitana coast in the past)? Is it worthwhile to take a sightseeing bus Hop on Hop off Tour ? Is there any concern for safety in the old town of Naples?

      Thank you for your comments.

    • David Tomorrow?

      Florence Oct 20, 2016 at 3:42 PM

      We only have tomorrow afternoon (Oct. 21) and night in Florence before we fly out Saturday morning. I really want to see the statue David but I hear that the lines are always long unless you're on a tour. Will I be able to get into a tour that lasts just an hour or 2 if I don't get there until noon or shortly after tomorrow? What is the best way to set something up? (We do not have a phone here....)

      We plan to stay in an Airbnb apartment in Pont Vecchio. I would really appreciate your help with this as I don't want to spend our limited time waiting in line to see the exhibit. Also, do you have any other things that are nearby that would be quick and easy to see?

      Many thanks in advance!

    • Venice to San gim to Rome

      San Gimignano Oct 8, 2016 at 3:38 PM

      Hi, trying to figure out best way to do the rental car...should I train to Florence and rent a car there, or pick up the car in Venice and drive to s gim? Sounds like the drive isn't particularly scenic. And at the end of the week in San gim, we will be heading to Rome. I know not to drive there, so should I return the car in Florence, Siena, Orvieto, or Rome airport? We could take train from Florence, Siena or Orvieto. Thanks in advance,

      Via Francigena San Gimignano to Siena

      Tuscany Oct 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM


      I have 4 days in Tuscanny in mid october and I was thinking about doing part of the Via Francigena, more specifically San Gimignano to Siena, or Ponte d'arbia to San Quirico. I like to take photos so which one of these would be nicest in fall. Or any other 3 day walks recommended in fall in that area? From what I have read its quite feasible to do it alone as it is quite well marked and with signs, but I find very little information about doing it alone, mostly tours. I am planning on taking the bus to San Gimignano and starting the next morning, does that sounds ok?

      Warm regards

    • Amalfi base in early April

      Sorrento Oct 18, 2016 at 4:57 PM


      My fiance and I are planning out the details of our honeymoon, and will have 4 nights (2 full days, 2 partial days) to spend in the Amalfi region in the beginning of April. We will head there from Rome, and need to go back to Rome at the end of our last day for our flight home.

      I've done a lot of research and I can't decide on the best city in the region to base ourselves; I'd appreciate some help in making that decisions. I am aware that it is low season and some hotels will be closed and the buses/ferries will be more limited.

      Things that we want to do/see (hopefully with fairly easy transport from our base) -
      - Pompeii
      - coastal views, hiking, +/- horseback riding if we can find somewhere reasonably priced and the weather cooperates
      - possibly Paestum (both ruins and mozzarella) - if we have time, not super high on the priority list
      - not sure about Capri, leaning against it

      Things we are less interested in -
      - shopping, souvenir shops
      - beach time (not the time of a year, not a priority)
      - high-end tourism/restaurants/bars
      - Naples

      Any pointers on where we should use as a homebase and how to spend our days with these things in mind? Sorrento is what I've heard is the easiest base, but I've also been reading about some of the smaller towns being potential options (Vietri Sul Mare near Salerno, others) - what is the best choice given time of year and ease of transport?

    • Advice on must see places of Sardinia?

      Sardegna Oct 9, 2016 at 7:42 AM

      We've booked 5 nights on the island of Sardinia and hoping to get some ideas on recommended areas to stay/visit? I feel that the island itself might be too large to choose anywhere to stay and then venture out each day. Thanks!

      Best Place to stay for 2-3 days

      by Daytripper58 Online Now May 14, 2016 at 4:53 PM

      I am planning a trip to Montemagno, Italy - Monferrati Hills Area for family research. My family originated from this area and later moved to the US. I want to go visit the land of my ancestors and get a good feel of the area. I have no idea where to stay as a base location and I don’t know anything about the area as all of the old family has passed away. Where to stay? What to do? Local guides? Where to eat?

      Any help is appreciated. Help me to understand my home land.

      Shopping in Asti

      by bhrousemd Online Now Jul 8, 2013 at 3:17 AM

      I'm headed to Asti for the Palio this fall. Right now, I am planning on traveling light, as I find it is more fun to "shop" for some clothes during my trip (that not being the sole purpose!). I am wondering if there are any recommendations for clothing stores in the city, or if there are any outlets nearby. Thanks in advance!

      I'm hoping to find information about high schools in Asti, Italy. My daughter, Megan High, has planned for a year to be a foreign exchange student in Italy. We chose the program, Two Worlds United, and they have been keeping us updated since February about the long process of finding a host family, visa, etc.. All of her information should have been completed by June 1, 2006.

      We just found out that she will be living in Asti, Italy, but when I ask for phone numbers for the school and host family, I'm told that they don't have that information. This is starting to look like a scam and I just need a phone number for the high schools in Asti, Italy.

      Now that there is doubt in my mind about this company, if they do actually pull this off and Megan does get to spend her senior year of high school in Asti, I will have to travel there when she goes, just to make sure she does have a family to live with and that she is alright.

      I'll need a place to stay for a week that is reasonably priced. They haven't even applied for her visa but keep saying that everything is alright. I've learned that they have an F rating with the Better Bussiness Bureau, so it just doesn't look promising. I've paid the money and if they actually do come through, I'll be flying with her to make sure she is safe.

      Any ideas on who I could contact to see if Two Worlds United has even attempted to get Megan enrolled in a high school in Asti, Italy would very much be appreciated.
