    • Coming to stay in Padova

      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!

      Thanks anybody who will answer in advance

      Brindisi or Porte Cesareo?

      Basilicata Jan 27, 2014 at 5:30 AM

      Our coming holiday I would like to spend exploring "the heel" and geografically both Brindisi and Porto Cesareo suit well for short rides everyday. But my children (teenagers) are very specific about the beach. To be more specific, the sea. They like when you can snork. The water should be clear and there are should be some species to watch (no matter fish or crab), they also don't like it when it is shallow for quite a long time ( as it is along Venice Rivierra). Could you please help me with a choice?

      Matera Aug 25, 2011 at 7:55 PM

      Are you familiar with Matera? We may be in the city for 2 nights to do some photo-shooting, and I'd like to know what hotels you can recommend that have cave bedrooms and spectacular views of the town (I'm cheating on a couple of the photos, to shoot them from my bedroom window!). I don't mind if it's pricey, but it has to be worth the cost. I'm leaning toward the Hotel Sassi, and recent reviews of the place are favorable.

      We are looking for accommodation in Maratea but with all the little communities it is difficult to get a good understanding of the area and how far apart things are. We want something atmospheric and not too expensive. The Old Town sounds like what we are after, but is it far from the beach? An apartment with two double bedrooms or a bed & breakfast would be great or a hotel (assuming not too expensive). All the websites I've found so far are for accomodation which appear to be quite some distance from the Old Town and/or requires a car. Do you have any suggestions?

Anyone know the best way for me to get from Naples to Avigliano (by way of Avellino) and about how long it will take? Is there actually much reason to stay in either town or will this most likely be drive in, look around and drive on to the next "hometown"?
