    • Assessing the AV2 trail and recomendation where to escape after the 5th day

      Dolomiti 14 hours ago

      Hi,
      My partner and I are planning to arranged to do the first 5 days of Alta Via 2 in the Dolomites. We hike quite a bit but is always just for 1 or 2 days at a time. We are trying to get a better idea of the trail to make sure it is not beyond our capabilities. Our days, along the AV2, are listed below:

      Questions:
      1. Can someone comment on what kind of equipment we need and what kind of equiptment is helpful (hiking poles vs. ferratas kits)l. We want to avoid via ferratas.

      2. On day 5/6 is there a good place to finish the hike and get back into town. We want to make our way back to Milan .

      Thanks!

      Day 1 Bressanone to Rifugio Ditta di Bressanone Cicerone book difficulty rating: 2
      Day 2 to Rifugio Genova 2
      Day 3 to Rifugio Puez 2-3

    • Beach in Vietri sul Mare and Sorento

      Vietri sul Mare Yesterday

      We plan to stay 14 days in Salerno at the end of august and first half of September. So we planned to visit all the major towns on the Amalfi coast but to have some sunbathing on La Baia beach in Vietri sul mare.

      1) Can anyone tell me what are the prices of a parasol + sunbeds for 2 people on La Baia beach in Vietri sul mare and is it far from the bus stops?

      2) Are there any sandy beaches in Salerno? What are the prices? Where are they situated?

      Thank you in advance for your answers!

    • Best way Tivoli to Barberini?

      Tivoli Jul 10, 2016 at 6:20 AM

      We need to travel from Villa d'Este in Tivoli to Piazza Barberini in Rome and are undecided about train to Tiburtina and Metro B to Barberini or Cotral bus from Tivoli. Cost is less of a consideration than time

      Is that San Oronzo on the promenade in Otranto

      Otranto Jul 2, 2016 at 7:11 AM

      First - thanks for all the great answers to my last question about Otranto. Now for my next question. There is a column with a statue on the top on the sea front of Otranto which looks very like San Oronzo who features a lot in Puglia towns. I have made an extensive search on the internet but no joy - does anyone know if I am right?
      Thanks

      Milan Study

      Milan Jun 28, 2016 at 10:25 PM

      My daughter and 2 friends arrive at Malpensa on 11th July afternoon. They are there till 23rd July for a summer course at NABA university (downtown of Navigli area). They are staying near the institute itself.

      Now,

      1. How do they get to that area from the Malpensa airport?

      2. How do they travel around Milan? What is the best process to sight see around Milan, and what all to see? They will be staying near the Central Station on night of 23rd (basically spend the whole day of 23rd roaming around Milan City).

      3. How to travel to and from Linate airport and NABA? For the 3, will a Taxi be more cost effective?

      Thanks in advance friends.

    • Hotels in Old Town

      by jazzymum Online Now Jan 3, 2007 at 8:47 PM

      We are looking for accommodation in Maratea but with all the little communities it is difficult to get a good understanding of the area and how far apart things are. We want something atmospheric and not too expensive. The Old Town sounds like what we are after, but is it far from the beach? An apartment with two double bedrooms or a bed & breakfast would be great or a hotel (assuming not too expensive). All the websites I've found so far are for accomodation which appear to be quite some distance from the Old Town and/or requires a car. Do you have any suggestions?
      Regards
