      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!

      Vespa rentals

      Siena Feb 4, 2017 at 6:38 AM

      We want to rent vespas while in Siena. Found a company that will bring them to our hotel. Is it best to do this with a tour, or would we be good to head out without a guide?

      Is there a boat connection to Ercolano?
      How much would a taxi cost (let's say from Toledo)?

      I am trying to find reliable opening and closing times for tourist attractions nicely listed and described on this site for Ortygia and Siracusa for Easter weekend (04/14-04/18). Does any website have this info as I could not locate it anywhere?

      I am so sorry that this site will close.... I hope that the existing content will not be removed..

      How many days?

      Florence Feb 2, 2017 at 6:00 PM

      We are planning on a trip to Rome and Florence for 7 days total. I've been to Rome and think we need 4 days to get the best experience, but that leaves 3 days for Florence. Is that enough? One of us want to see Florence above all cities in Italy (not me, I want to see Rome). Thanks!

      Bus/Train Schedules, Rome to Calcata

      by SandiM Online Now Mar 20, 2012 at 7:12 PM

      Only 2 weeks before our trip! According to the route planner, we need to take a metro to Piazzale Popoli and get a train to Saxa Rubra and a Cotral bus from there to get to Calcata. If we go on a Wednesday, are the trains from Rome (ferrovia roma nord) to Saxa Rubra fairly frequent? Bottom line, when should we leave from the Rome Termini metro station to Piazzale Popoli/Ferrovia Nord station to Saxa Rubra to catch the 920am bus?

      Anyone been here?

      by SandiM Online Now Nov 8, 2009 at 7:29 PM

      I speak of Calcata (not Calcutta), a tiny town just 30 miles of Rome. The town was mentioned in the latest National Geographic Traveller Magazine, and it has peaked my wee photographer's interest considerably. I've already accessed their own website, and I have really good info on how to get to it from Rome. However, if we (my mother and I on vacation) were already in the Tuscany region, and wanted to make a stop for the day in Calcata before heading down into Rome, is this possible? I'm looking at road maps and trying to figure out if there was an easy access to the town coming from the NORTH--does anyone have any good ideas? Oh, and here's the kicker--we aren't renting a car--we are taking the bus from Siena to Pienza, and then we WERE going to head over to Chiusi to catch a train to Rome, and then this article came out and now it's caused an uproar in my head. Maybe I should just take that train to Rome and daytrip it from there? Suggestions?
