      Via Francigena San Gimignano to Siena

      Tuscany Oct 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM


      I have 4 days in Tuscanny in mid october and I was thinking about doing part of the Via Francigena, more specifically San Gimignano to Siena, or Ponte d'arbia to San Quirico. I like to take photos so which one of these would be nicest in fall. Or any other 3 day walks recommended in fall in that area? From what I have read its quite feasible to do it alone as it is quite well marked and with signs, but I find very little information about doing it alone, mostly tours. I am planning on taking the bus to San Gimignano and starting the next morning, does that sounds ok?

      Warm regards

    • Amalfi base in early April

      Sorrento Oct 18, 2016 at 4:57 PM


      My fiance and I are planning out the details of our honeymoon, and will have 4 nights (2 full days, 2 partial days) to spend in the Amalfi region in the beginning of April. We will head there from Rome, and need to go back to Rome at the end of our last day for our flight home.

      I've done a lot of research and I can't decide on the best city in the region to base ourselves; I'd appreciate some help in making that decisions. I am aware that it is low season and some hotels will be closed and the buses/ferries will be more limited.

      Things that we want to do/see (hopefully with fairly easy transport from our base) -
      - Pompeii
      - coastal views, hiking, +/- horseback riding if we can find somewhere reasonably priced and the weather cooperates
      - possibly Paestum (both ruins and mozzarella) - if we have time, not super high on the priority list
      - not sure about Capri, leaning against it

      Things we are less interested in -
      - shopping, souvenir shops
      - beach time (not the time of a year, not a priority)
      - high-end tourism/restaurants/bars
      - Naples

      Any pointers on where we should use as a homebase and how to spend our days with these things in mind? Sorrento is what I've heard is the easiest base, but I've also been reading about some of the smaller towns being potential options (Vietri Sul Mare near Salerno, others) - what is the best choice given time of year and ease of transport?

      Hello everyone,

      I'm planning on going to the Adriatic part of Italy in May and was wondering on the ideal location to stay as a base for traveling around the region. I thought about Ancona since it seems quite beautiful in pictures. I don't necessarily need to stay in the city itself since I have a car and can travel around. I would be happy to have a base town from which I can visit beautiful hills/beaches/cute coastal town/charming cities. I'm asking too much I know but I'm taking my mother there for her birthday and want to plan a very nice trip for her!

      Many thanks in advance for your suggestions!
