    • Assessing the AV2 trail and recomendation where to escape after the 5th day

      Dolomiti 18 hours ago

      Hi,
      My partner and I are planning to arranged to do the first 5 days of Alta Via 2 in the Dolomites. We hike quite a bit but is always just for 1 or 2 days at a time. We are trying to get a better idea of the trail to make sure it is not beyond our capabilities. Our days, along the AV2, are listed below:

      Questions:
      1. Can someone comment on what kind of equipment we need and what kind of equiptment is helpful (hiking poles vs. ferratas kits)l. We want to avoid via ferratas.

      2. On day 5/6 is there a good place to finish the hike and get back into town. We want to make our way back to Milan .

      Thanks!

    • Beach in Vietri sul Mare and Sorento

      Vietri sul Mare Yesterday

      We plan to stay 14 days in Salerno at the end of august and first half of September. So we planned to visit all the major towns on the Amalfi coast but to have some sunbathing on La Baia beach in Vietri sul mare.

      1) Can anyone tell me what are the prices of a parasol + sunbeds for 2 people on La Baia beach in Vietri sul mare and is it far from the bus stops?

      2) Are there any sandy beaches in Salerno? What are the prices? Where are they situated?

      Thank you in advance for your answers!

      3. How to travel to and from Linate airport and NABA? For the 3, will a Taxi be more cost effective?

    • 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
