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!
I got tickets for Wednesday, Pope audience but I don't know what to expect. Any advice on that experience. Also, what's a good location for hotel- walking around. Thank you.
Any advice appreciated. Flying into Venice -where to stay for two nights ? how is transportation from there to Rome? is easy to walk around to see the city of Venice? Thank you - Thank you.
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?
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!

Does anyone have a good scoop on locations of flea markets in Venice and which day they are held? Rome too!
You can respond to email@example.com also!
I am trying to find reliable opening and closing times for tourist attractions nicely listed and described on this site for Ortygia and Siracusa for Easter weekend (04/14-04/18). Does any website have this info as I could not locate it anywhere?
I am so sorry that this site will close.... I hope that the existing content will not be removed..
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?
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?
Im planning on staying 3 nights in the northern Italy...... Milan and Verona.... Which city do you recommend for 2 of those 3 nights??
Thanks for your thoughts.
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?
I would like to spend some time hiking around the Stelvio National Park in summer. Which town would be the best to use as a base to access the park. I do not drive and need to be able to rely on public transport. thank you

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!
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,
I will be in Rome for Easter Sunday.What should I know -Im not catholic but I want to visit the Pope place
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.
How far is Napoli Centrale to Napoli Piazza Garibaldi. My train arrives at Napoli Centrale and I have to go over to Napoli Piazza Garibaldi to catch another train.

Hi, we will be spending 7 days in venice, including New Years Eve. We want to make sure that we sample great food and wine during our trip, as this is our passion. It doesn't have to be high end but it does have to be high quality. We are wanting to kick back and have a (relatively) stress free and memorable time. We are staying in a centrally based apartment so are happy to cook, but would much prefer to eat out - especially in less touristy (yes, I know - Venice is a tourist destination...) areas. All tips gratefully recieved.

Hi! I'm going to spend a month in Italy (July) and I have to choose between Genova and Perugia. I think, Perugia offers more opportunities for excursions (Roma, Firenze, Pisa) but...does it have a good social life (museums, buildings and nightlife) ? On the other hand, Genova is close only to Milan but has a lot of things to do. What do you tihnk?
And of course...which city is more expensive?
Thanks a lot!
Is there a good camera shop in milan where i can buy ND filters? I tried trony and the megastore at duomo but to no avail.
If we land at Milan Linate at 11am, will we be able to make a 12:20pm fast train out of Milan Central? If we miss it can we use our tickets for the next train? thank you
I am off to Treviso on the 29th December for new year and all the bars seem to say open for lunch 12 -3 then dinner 7 til late, does this mean that I will not be able to get a drink between 3 and 7 times and will the bars actually shut in the afternoon.
cheers in advance
will be in port in civitavecchia may 1. wanting to get to rome to tour on our own using the rick steves "heart of rome walk" as a guide. the best and least expensive option is for us to take the train in to rome and then use the metro and walking as a way to accomplish just a bit of sight seeing. my question: is using the train/ metro a viable option on this holiday day or should we spend way more money and use the ship's transport in to rome (which guarantees we will arrive back at the ship for departure). we will be in port for about 10 hrs and i realize it takes an hour or more to get in to the city from civitavecchia. opinions? we know most all the big tourist spots are closed this day.
Are there any boats (public or commercial) that cover the stretch from Naples to Sorrento?
On Dec. 13-15d. I'm planning to visit Milan. One of the main museums I'd like to visit is Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese region. According to giromilano.atm.it's journey planner, I should take the M1 metro and then at the nearby Rho rail station, I should catch a 561 line bus and then get off at the Via Aldo Moro street, with a few hundred metres left to reach my destination.
My question is: if I buy a 2-day ATM ticket (which cost 8.25 €), does it still mean it's valid around Arese area or is it only around Milan center (in other words: will I have to buy additional bus tickets to get there)?
Thanks in advance
