      1.Easiest way to get to Naples from Rome 2. Hotels in Island of Ischia

      Naples Jan 8, 2017 at 3:01 PM

      Dear local experts:
      I am traveling from Los Angeles CA, will land in Rome. 1. What is the quickest and easiest way to get from Rome to Naples. Please give me specific links, your personal experience, etc.
      I will stay a couple of days in Naples. I want to book a hotel on the island of Ischia and also want to spend at least one entire day in Prochida. I understand that the same ferry that runs from Naples stops on both islands - Prochida and ischia. How much is a ticket (average)?
      2. What hotel on Ischia is NICE, having a good THERMAL pool, a spa facility (sauna, jakuzzi), near beaches AND up to 150 US dollars a night? (hope it exists :-)
      Thank you all. Best,
      Gelena

      Planning on renting a car

      Sardegna Jan 17, 2017 at 11:19 AM

      Hi there,
      We are planning on taking a ferry from mainland Italy to Olbia. From Olbia, we have to get to Palau, which is 45 minutes away.
      I was "strongly recommended" to rent a car. Does anyone know if we'd be better off renting a car in Olbia, or bringing one on the ferry from mainland Italy?
      I looked into renting a car in Olbia, and the prices were outrageous (we need one for 5 days.) Does anyone know which rental company I should look into, and how much we can expect to pay?
      Grazie!
      Kristin

    • Summer holiday

      Italy Jan 11, 2017 at 3:13 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a little old town within walking distance.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      We'd love to visit Italy, also considering Greece and France, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!
      Emma

    • Which resort to stay at Lake Garda?

      Lago di Garda Jan 5, 2017 at 1:52 AM

      Hello, what a great website. Hope someone can help with this. Me and my partner are hoping to go to Lake Garda in the summer but we are unsure as to which resort to base ourselves at. We are both 40 and although we are definitely beyond wanting a Club 18/30 type holiday we still want a nice lively resort that has a nice nightlife until fairly late at night. Last year we went to Sorrento and this was absolutely fantastic, lots of open-air restaurants, bars and even traditional music and singing in the streets at night, this was just perfect, so we wondered if any Lake Garda resort offered something similar? I was maybe thinking of Sirmione or Garda as a base as those would both be easier for us to get to, but I have no idea what the nightlife would be like. Hope someone can help? Thanks, Sarah.

      How long does the ferry trip take from La Spezia to last of the villages? We thought we could take the ferry up & then use the train back to Corniglia, where we have a booking for 2 nights. Also where do we look for a ferry timetable?

    • Guvano Beach

      by ARyan86 Online Now Feb 10, 2011 at 6:45 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I am planing a trip to the Cinque Terre in June. My question is about Guvano, the (from what I read) "clothing optional" beach. I am going on this trip with a beach-lover and I read this beach is less touristy so I think it would be great to check out. Plus our hostel is in Corniglia. However, I am not comfortable going without a swimsuit. Honestly, I will probably even be self-conscious in a swimsuit. Am I going to be the only clothed person there? I've heard this beach called a clothing optional as well as a nude beach.

      Thank you for the help:)

      My wife and I will be traveling Europe for 3 weeks and plan on staying in Cinque Terre for 4 days at Corniglia. My question is: is it reasonable to haul our luggage to our room (up the 377 steps) We are in our 50s and in good shape. Or is there a way to get to Corniglia without going up the steps.

      Thanks

    • 5 Terre

      by pyyeung Online Now Feb 12, 2005 at 10:22 AM

      Hi all, A visit to the Cinque Terre in June has just come to my mind. I would like to get some ideas from you guys, before working hard in guide books. Here're my questions: 1) I am an expenericed solo traveller and had been in Italy 10 years ago. It was not that safe there, how about now? Will it be ok for a female traveller go alone? 2) I have about 8 days. I think I will explore Milan and around, spend 3d2n in the 5 Terre Any other places are recommended to go nearby? Will it be too rush to include 2 nights in Venice? 3) I know that it's getting busy early in June, will it be safe to hike through the villages alone? Besides, will it be fine to go without reservation in accommodation? What price should I expect? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

    • Reservations?

      by Lauren_jesse Online Now Jan 15, 2005 at 6:11 PM

      How important would it be to have reservations if I am going to the Cinque Terre in May/June for a couple of days? We want to stay as cheap as possible but would like to keep our options open about what village to stay in and for how long. Is it going to be impossible to get a good priced room without reservations?

    • Hiking

      by Lauren_jesse Online Now Jan 13, 2005 at 12:33 AM

      I'm not super athletic, but I'm set on hiking through the cinque terre. Or at least some of it. How phisically challanging are the hikes? And any other advice pertaining to any of the villages would be helpful too.

      The hunt for the best Pesto EVER!

      by Beth75NJ Online Now May 11, 2004 at 7:41 AM

      Hi everyone, My sister spent some time in Cinque Terre last summer (and I'm dying to get out there!) . She brought home the best pesto, EVER, "Prodotti Tipici Liguri- Cinque Terre in tavola- Pesto alla Genovese" There is a picture of an octopus on the green label holding a knife and fork. Her birthday is coming up and I would love to get her a ton of this stuff as a gift. I looked on the website and it's under construction. I was wondering if anyone else has fallen under the spell of this yummy concoction and if you know where I can buy some or if you'd be willing to help me locate some. I'd be more then happy to help you out with some NYC product shipping. (pickles or knishe's perhaps?) :) Thanks so much, Beth
