      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!

      Vespa rental in Siena

      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?

      Hello all, I wanted some advice about how to get to Patras, Greece from Brindisi. We will be coming from Naples and arriving in Brindisi.

      Are there many trips from Naples to Brindisi by both bus and train?
      Which is faster and which is cheaper?

      From Brindisi, is the ferry ride to Patras a safe and pleasant journey? No big waves? Or should I get ready for sea sickness? We plan to travel in Spring.

      How often are the ferries to Patras from Brindisi? Daily? Are there many companies that do this route?

      Thank you for all the advice.

      How are you all? Please I need need some advice or assistance from whoever is in the position to help. Due to some inexplanable Aitalia policy (really, I cannot explain it becos it makes no sense to me), I am been forced to leave Brindisi for Rome on Friday, June 6 and return to Brindisi from Rome Saturday, June 7 to catch a flight very early in the morning on Sunday.

      I am looking for alternative and perhaps shorter routes between these 2 cities apart from train. Are there buses that run between both towns (Brindisi and Rome)? How can one find a carpool or ride with private person to these towns? Any of you driving or know someone driving to either town on said dates? Any reference to schedules and info is much appreciated.

      Tips anyone?
