      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?

    • Southern Italy in Winter

      by KeyNoteSteve Online Now Jan 19, 2010 at 7:30 PM

      We are planning a trip to be in Venice Italy for New Years Eve 2010. After a week or so in Venice, we are thinking of traveling South (for warmer weather). We have no experience with a) southern Italy and b) Italy Winter.

      So would appreciate info on travelling in southern Italy. Our main concern is that attractions (Galleries, theatres, sites of interest, restaurants,...) would be closed leaving little to do but walk about the towns. Lecce sounds like an interesting place, but is it 'up and running' in January or is all quiet.

      We were also thinking of getting to Sicily. Other suggestions in the southern region are welcome.

      Thanks in advance
