      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!

    • 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.

    • Ferrara or Bologna?

      by jlg198 Online Now Nov 24, 2010 at 11:11 PM

      I had thought of basing myself for a week in Bologna next October, as a city that is not too touristy and is good for food. But I am now reading that it is very congested and noisy, with lots of graffiti and some areas of the city that are not so safe. So I am thinking I might be happier with a smaller place - and am considering Ferrara. It needs to be on the railway line as I would like to do day trips to Ravenna and to Florence. Would Ferrara be OK for a week? Is there a farmers market? Does anyone know of an inexpensive apartment for holiday rentalfor two people - we like to go to the markets and bring home food to cook ourselves. Would there be opera or concerts at that time of year?

      by Barkay Online Now Jul 3, 2010 at 2:14 AM

      2 years ago I visited Ferrara, but unfortunately the church of the convent Corpus Domini with tombs of d'Este was closed for heavy reconstruction.
      I'll stop in Bologna for 2 days this October, and it is not far from Ferrara.
      May be somebody knows is the church open already for tourists, or it still under reconstruction?
      Thank you in advance.

    • Casa Degli Artisti

      by jennifer_m Online Now Aug 17, 2006 at 3:23 PM

      Hi,

      I am travelling to Italy next March and was thinking of stopping
      for a few days in Ferrara. The problem is that I am alone, on a
      budget, and Ferrara apparently has no hostel anymore per the
      official hostelling organization. Casa Degli Artisti seems to
      be the cheapest hotel (for a single room, not double), has anyone
      stayed there? I don't care if the rooms are very small (who goes
      to Italy to sit in their hotel room?) or it has no TV or things
      like that. I'm just looking for reasonably clean and safe. (I know
      Italy is much safer than the US in general but a woman travelling
      alone gets nervous)

      Thanks,
      Jennifer
