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
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!
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.

Thank you in advance, Hope to hear any suggestions :))
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
On a budget in Venice any tips??
we will catch a train to Rome at 1pm on Easter Sunday 2017
is there a cafe and will it and other facilities be open?
Traveling for 7 total days- looking to make my mother in laws wish come true to travel to ischia however realize not too much to do there so will put 3 days aside for there need another destination that would be convenient and worthwhile for another 2-3 days stay. Please advise will be traveling with total of 8 adults
thank you so much!!
Have today booked a holiday in Taormina to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We have been to Italy plenty of times so know the mainland reasonably well but have never been to Sicily. We are both fit and active and prefer to use public transport rather than join organised groups. During our holiday (10 days ) what is considered to be a must see/do to get the most out of our time spent in Sicily.
We are planning a trip to Italy in early May. Can anyone recommend a one-day cooking class in Tuscany that would include shopping, cooking, eating...and, of course, wine?
Whats the best way to get to Croatia from Venice and back.
We only have a week in Venice, but would love to see Croatia for atleast 2 days.
I am hoping for a recommendation for a tour company to book with to take a tour of the Colosseum(inc underground and third ring)?
It seems the recommended "official" ticket website coopculture.it sells tickets online which are only valid until the 31st December- we would like to book for the 9th Jan.
Thanks in Advance
I will travel to Rome with my family next month. It is my first time in Rome, and I would like to find a really nice restaurant, not too expensive, to celebrate my birthday. Any suggestions will be wellcome.
Our hotel is near Teatro dell´Opera.
Thanks in advance.
We will be arriving in to Orio al Serio Airport and would like to take the airport shuttle in to Milan. I would like to book the tickets online but the website (Orio Shuttle) is asking for a time of departure. If our flight is delayed and we miss this time slot, does anyone know if we would be allowed on a later shuttle? If we wait until we land to buy a ticket, is it too risky that we may not get a seat?
Thanks in advance.
We will be in Siracusa next week and would like to do some clothes shopping. Can somebody please tell me what are the general opening hours for shops?
I will be in Treviso over new year and flying back on the 6th January. I have plans up to the 2nd jan then nothing planes. What is there to do ? I have a good budget and maybe could go to other city for a couple of days maybe.
thanks in advance vt'ers
