    • 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

      Via Francigena San Gimignano to Siena

      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?

    • 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?

      Bologna Airport Bus - some questions

      by Kathrin_E Online Now May 2, 2014 at 2:48 AM

      Ciao amici,

      I'm going to Bologna soon and could do with a few details about the airport bus, linea BLQ.
      I already found this here:
      My hotel is at the corner Via dell'Independenza/Via Irneria/Via dei Mille. Google street view shows a BLQ bus right in front of the hotel,which looks convenient. Which stop would be the nearest to get off the bus - Arena del Sole?
      I arrive on Wednesday, so upon arrival this stop should be served. However, it seems that on Sunday, when I leave, the route is different and not all stops are served, but I do not exactly understand that information sheet Does that mean that on Sunday I'll have to walk to Stazione Centrale to catch the airport bus?
      Do I understand correctly that tickets can be bought from the bus driver, or where do I get them?

      Mille grazie in advance for any help!

      P.S. Links in Italian are perfectly fine with me.

      I cannot see anything on the Trenitalia site.
      Does anybody know of a local timetable?

      Travel from Karlsruhe to Bologna

      by Kathrin_E Online Now Feb 27, 2014 at 1:21 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I am looking for the fastest and easiest wat to reach Bologna from Karlsruhe. Of course there is the train, but that means something like 10 hours. Doable if there is no alternative, sure.
      However, I'd like to ask if any of you can think of an alternative, i.e. flying, preferably without changes, that gets me there faster than the train.

      The dates in question are: arrival May 14 (if I have to take the train) or May 15 by early afternoon (if there is a faster option), return Sunday May 18. Dates are set in stone because I am attending a conference.

      Night trains are not a viable option as I know from experience that I cannot sleep on board a running train, that I am a zombie on the day after and would not recommend anyone to be near me - not the perfect conditions for attending a scientific conference and perhaps even giving a talk.

      Driving is also not an option.

      ... any ideas?
