      Getting to Naples airport

      Naples Feb 10, 2017 at 2:07 PM

      I just realized that our flight leaving Naples is at 6:45am. I've booked a hotel that's a 12 minute drive from the airport, but we won't be driving. How's the cab situation during that time of the day? We will be staying at the B&B Milionaria. Thanks!

      During our visit to Napoli in the end of April, we'll see "La Traviata" at the Opera, it starts at 20:00, so won't be over until at least 23.00. Fortunately it's a Saturday.

      Vespa rental in Siena

      Italy Jan 24, 2017 at 7:41 PM

      We are headed to Siena for 3 nights and thought it would be fun to rent Vespas for a day to explore. Thoughts on this.....none of us have ever driven/ridden a Vespa. If we do this and not being part of tour, is that advisable? I think it could be a fun adventure, but are we biting off more than we can chew?

      How late are the food-stores/supermarkets usually open at Italy? I´ve been trying to find any foodstore close to apartment we have rented (at Via Corsica 18, Brescia) with google maps, but I don´t find any. It´s hard to belive there aint any small one at least. We will arrive around 17.30 and I´m hoping we could buy something for breakfast same day (day after tomorrow/monday).
      Is there some word to use when searching. I´ve tried in ENglish and using word "alimentari" witch I got from traslator.
      Too bad there´s no street-view from that area.

      Do you think, that restaurants in Brescia will have English menus?

We are sadly not those people who eat "everything", and I´m also allergic to coupple of things.

      Apartments for rent in Brescia?

      Brescia May 6, 2010 at 3:43 AM

      I tried to find some apartments for rent in Brescia (4 nights only,not long term) But I only found two apartments. If someone knows some rentals witch I might have missed with google (have tried many different ways,and all renting-sites I know) then please tell me!

      Of course we can go to hotel also,but an apartment would be "more our style" of travelling. And sometimes apartments are cheaper. Those two ones I found were big enough for 4, so more expensive pp for two.

      What kind of town is Brescia?

      Brescia May 4, 2010 at 6:18 AM

      I have tried to find info about Brescia,and I have red all the tips in here also,but still I don´t know for sure would I like Brescia.
      Is it lively at nights? I don´t mean night-clubs,I mean are they lots of restaurants to eat,and maybe some with nice traace to sit out and watch people. Are there pedestrian streets,or even an area of town without cars?
      I´m just thinking,if we would go there for 4 or 5 nights,would we have relaxing time there. I saw there is some ruins and an old castle,witch is nice.But since we are allways staying up late at night,we have sometimes found ourselves at places,where all the restaurants will close early,and yhere´s "no-one" there.
      It would be from sunday to friday in september, so not the liveliest weekend-time. (Because of the chepaer flights to Bergamo that way).We´ve allready been to Milan and Bergamo.

      I understand the Italian lake(s) are nearby (lake como of Oceans 12 fame is about the height of my knowledge). Loving the outdoors this sounds like it might be a nice area. Then again, we could spend the time in/around Venice? or ...?

      As noted, like the outdoors, good food, nice architecture/pretty villages, etc. Not into Milan-style shopping.
