      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!

    • Mantova--Mosquitos and Ferries in October

      by beejay421 Online Now May 21, 2014 at 9:19 PM

      I have been reading some of the threads about Mantova and we are planning to spend at least a week there in early October. Are mosquitos still quite the problem that they once were or is it a non-issue. We plan to use it as a home base to visit the area. We heard there are boat rides to neighboring towns and villages. Are they still running in October

      I'd your advice for a budget (under 70 euros a night preferred) bed and breakfast or hotel for Mantova in May. We don't care if the place is simple--we just want it to be clean and in a excellent central location with a bathroom ensuite. Thanks in advance!

      by myrasue Online Now Apr 4, 2004 at 2:02 PM

      Help!! We are going to Italy in August of 2004. We are scheduled to go to Mantova, but have been scared by the descriptions of hot, humid weather in a city that is surrounded by swamplike water. Are mosquitos a problem when walking around town in the evening? There is still time to change our plans. We would be miserable in a place that has a mosquito problem. Thank you
