      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.

      Day trip from Malpensa Milan to COURMAYEUR MONT BLANC round trip Alps cable ride?

      by lenyabloko Online Now Jun 11, 2012 at 11:45 AM

      Hello All,

      We are arriving to Malpensa Airport 9am and will rent a car there. Is it sensible to drive from there to COURMAYEUR MONT BLANC for roundtrip Alps cable ride? I have plotted to rout on Google ant it shows 2:08 hrs ride one way. How much time should I allow for the ride itself, including the stop at Giardino Botanico Alpino Saussurea?

      Thanks in advance for your help.

      bus from courmayeur to aosta

      by Jen611 Online Now Jul 26, 2009 at 5:33 PM

      Hello,

      My husband and I are attempting to reserve the earliest bus departing Courmayeur for our upcoming trip in August, on a Thursday morning. We are having difficulty booking it on the savda.it website, however, and were hoping somebody could provide some insight and help. When trying to reserve the earliest bus, at 6:45 am, we get an error message: "La tratta 058561->010001 utilizzata sulla corsa 36398 non è tariffabile," which translates on google translate to "Trafficking 058561 -> 010001 used on race and pricing, not 36,398." An "x" appears where we would select that bus, and we can not book it.

      Any thoughts/suggestions?

      We do seem able to reserve a later bus, however this would mean us missing our connection in Aosta.

      Thank you in advance for helping us out in this frustrating situation!

    • Transportation to Courmayeur

      by wilsonchristy Online Now Aug 4, 2008 at 11:48 AM

      I am arriving Geneva airport at 7:45PM (19.45) on 19 September and trying to figure out how to get to Courmayeur that evening. There are ski buses to Chamonix, but the ones I found leave GVA before 7PM (and then I'd still have to get through the tunnel). Is there a public bus or train I can take all the way to Courmayeur in the evening? Or any other way to get there short of renting a car?
