      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?

    • restaurant after opera?

      Naples Jan 25, 2017 at 4:21 AM

      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.
      Who knows of a (nice) restaurant nearby that still serves food that late?

      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?

      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!

      Tracing my father's WWII route

      by plogan Online Now Feb 3, 2011 at 4:25 PM

      Dear Virtual Tourist member,
      I am an American writer and I’m tracing my father’s World War II route from Naples to Bolzano. In the summer of 1945, my father’s headquarters company was stationed at the Hotel Splendide in Desenzano. He became friends with the hotel’s barber and the barber’s two children. I have been trying for several years to identify the barber and locate these “children”. The hotel has not been any help. I am writing to ask if there are any VT members who have elderly relatives in the area who may remember the name of the barber at the Hotel Splendide in the 1940s. My wife and I will visit Desenzano this year to complete the final leg of the journey; what is the best way to travel from Desenzano to Verona to Vicenza to Cornuda to Feltre?

      I will be staying in Limone while on holiday. Looking at the map of Lake Garda am I right in thinking that Desenzano is the most convenient/direct resort to catch a train to Venice. Do you know how long it will take from this resort and roughly how much the ticket is? Do they run frequently. I would really appreciate any help you could give me on this subject.

      We are travelling to Verona Airport (Valerio Catullo) and wonder what the best way of transferring to Desenzano del Garda. I have been informed that a taxi would cost 70 euros for a single trip, so we want to do it by local transport. Bus or train, or both.

      Desenzano as a destination for a 77 yr old lady?

      Hi everybody, I want to take my Mom to Desenzano for a few days. She is 77 yrs old, quite active, and has walked everywhere all her life. She has recently developed a hip problem, but it only causes her distress on hills or stairs (not that she will admit to, that is). Is Desenzano the place to go, keeping in mind I would like to tour Lake Garda by ferry, stopping at little places along the way? Appreciate your time, thank you. Diane
