      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!

      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?

      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!

    • from Monterosso train station to Levento

      by tammarietta Online Now May 16, 2014 at 12:13 AM

      Hello, we will be travelling from Milan to Cinque Terre by train arriving Monterosso Station around end of May. Since most of the hotels in Monterosso al Mare (we prefer) are fully booked therefore would like to consider other location (which is not too far from Monterosso Station). Is Levento the best choice in terms of distance ? How much it will cost to take a taxi ? Any other means of transportation to get there ? If Levento is not the closest alternative any other suggestions ? Thanks for your advise in advance.

      Where to Freedive, Cinque Terre

      by MissKimT Online Now Sep 11, 2011 at 12:58 AM

      Friends,

      I am from the US staying in Levanto through Sept 17th. Could anyone here offer tips or best places to go for freediving? Off-shore or by boat. Would like to spearfish but no gun.

      I'd like to hunt octopus but no experience. I understand lobster are not legal to collect.

      Happy to hire a boat or pay a local to show me the ropes for a half-day.

      Grazie!

Leave my boards locked up for a couple days while I explore CT. Anyone surfed there before? Ive seen some fun looking days on youtube. I know its the best spot in that area.

      Do water-taxis operate from Monterosso to Levanto (September evenings)?

      by bettyo70 Online Now Jun 15, 2009 at 3:05 PM

      In the interest of spending as much time on the sea as possible, I wanted to know if water-taxis (or later ferries) operate at all between Monterosso and Levanto in mid-September?

      Does anyone happen to know?

      HELP! Is this daytrip to the Cinque Terre from Camogli do-able??

      by bettyo70 Online Now Jun 5, 2009 at 9:10 PM

      Hi Everyone,

      I'm trying to plan a daytrip from CAMOGLI to the Cinque Terre. Not knowing well the ferry or train schedules, I wanted to know if this plan even sounds do-able:

      1) take train from Camogli to LEVANTO in the morning (approx 1 hr);

      2) hike the trail from Levanto to MONTEROSSO (approx 2 to 2 1/2 hours via the coastal trail);

      3) arrive in Monterosso for lunch and a rest (explore Monterosso at leisurely pace);

      4) take ferry from Monterosso to VERNAZZA in the late afternoon;

      5) have a nice dinner in Vernazza, watching the sunset;

      6) take train back to CAMOGLI in the evening.


      Again, I'm not sure how late the trains run from Vernazza to Camogli. (I would hate to be stranded in Vernazza!) Do you think this plan is okay? Thanks!!
