      Getting to Naples airport

      Naples Feb 10, 2017 at 2:07 PM

      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!

      Vespa rentals

      Siena Feb 4, 2017 at 6:38 AM

      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?

    • restaurant after opera?

      Naples Jan 25, 2017 at 4:21 AM

      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?

      Vespa rental in Siena

      Italy Jan 24, 2017 at 7:41 PM

      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?

      How many days?

      Florence Feb 2, 2017 at 6:00 PM

      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!

    • TO STAY IN ORTA OR MAGGIORE FOR 4 NIGHTS?

      by loracyellamo Online Now Aug 12, 2013 at 1:43 PM

      My husband and I are flying from JFK to Linate and don't know which lake to stay at. We are in our
      late 70s and fit, although I have difficulty climbing steep hills., but in general I have no limitations.
      I was sold on Maggiore until I started reading reviews that Orta was charming and romantic and now
      I'm confused. We stayed in Como a couple of years ago and loved it. Would you recommend staying
      2 nights in each as a compromise? We like good food, Villa Crespi has some good specials but the
      prices are a tad steep and I wonder if it's worth it. Would it be smarter to stay in town and have the
      restaurants close by? We will have a car and we're used to driving all over Italy...we have been in the
      country quite a bit and love everything about it. I want to go to the factory outlets and have read about
      the Lora Piana and Colombo Cashmere and Alessi as places to shop. Any comments about any of this
      will be very much appreciated! And I thank you in advance! We are going to be there from Sept. 10-14
      and wonder about the weather as well. lorac yellamo

    • wild camping around the lakes

      by hcook Online Now Jun 1, 2008 at 4:53 PM

      we are coming to northern Italy in our small campervan, at the beginning of august, and wondered if anyone knew of any possible quiet spots suitable for wild camping... we are travelling from UK, through Germany and Switzerland before arriving in Italy. We shall have our canoe too, so somewhere near a lake would be good

    • boat hire in Lago d'Orta

      Does anyone know where i can rent a small boat in or around Lago d'Orta. I would like to be able to keep it for around a week. It does not have to be anything at all fancy, a little rowing boat would do. I would be grateful to receive any suggustions.

      Thank you for your help
