      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.

    • longer term rentals in city center?

      Spilimbergo Aug 13, 2014 at 5:56 PM

      I"m thinking about taking some mosiac courses in Spilimbergo and then spending six months or so living there and using it as a homebase while I travel around the area (Slovania, etc.) My ideal would be to find a B&B or pension where I could rent a room with bath and breakfast for six months. I checked with Abergo Stella d'Oro and they gave me a great daily rate of 25 euros but that still comes to almost a thousand dollars a month. So I'm thinking about maybe renting a room with a family? Something like that? Or find a cheap apartment in the city center. (I won't have a car). I need to keep my monthly rent down to $600 including utilities. I only need one room, don't need a kitchen or anything like that.

      Also, I keep hearing the weather is awful in Spilimbergo; a lot of rain mainly. I quite like rain but not crazy about cold and raining. (I would be there December through at least April, maybe longer) -- anyway, any ideas or comments or just general info on the city. Has anyone explored the "borderless trail" the alpe adria trail? It sounds magical.

      Thanks,
      Tricia
