      Hi All,

      I am hoping for a recommendation for a tour company to book with to take a tour of the Colosseum(inc underground and third ring)?

      It seems the recommended "official" ticket website coopculture.it sells tickets online which are only valid until the 31st December- we would like to book for the 9th Jan.

      Any suggestions??

      Thanks in Advance

      Have today booked a holiday in Taormina to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We have been to Italy plenty of times so know the mainland reasonably well but have never been to Sicily. We are both fit and active and prefer to use public transport rather than join organised groups. During our holiday (10 days ) what is considered to be a must see/do to get the most out of our time spent in Sicily.

      Airport Shuttle from Bergamo Airport

      Milan Nov 14, 2016 at 1:02 AM

      We will be arriving in to Orio al Serio Airport and would like to take the airport shuttle in to Milan. I would like to book the tickets online but the website (Orio Shuttle) is asking for a time of departure. If our flight is delayed and we miss this time slot, does anyone know if we would be allowed on a later shuttle? If we wait until we land to buy a ticket, is it too risky that we may not get a seat?

      Thanks in advance.

      Italy - Itinerary help

      Naples Nov 9, 2016 at 5:41 AM

      I have planned a 4 day trip to Naples and around and following is high level itinerary

      Day 1: Reach Naples in night from London and stay here
      Day 2: Visit Naples and reach Sorrento in night and stay
      Day 3: Visit Positano, Amalfi and Ravello and return back to Sorrento for stay
      Day 4: Visit Pompei and then return to Naples to fly back

      Please let know if this looks good. Day 2 - what are the key things to visit in Naples?
      We avoid public transportation and rent car mostly for convenience and cost, but wanted to take bus and train in this case considering the narrow mountain routes and traffic issues - any suggestions?
      I will travel with my wife and 2 daughters (aged 11 and 7) during 3 week of December. Any other tips and comments also welcome!

      Is it realistic to drive from Sorrento to Matera? How long would it take to drive.? There are 3 of us so we thought it might be more economical and time efficient to drive and see the sites along the way. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Will be there end of May. Thanks

      Matera hotels?

      by SandiM Online Now Aug 25, 2011 at 7:55 PM

      Are you familiar with Matera? We may be in the city for 2 nights to do some photo-shooting, and I'd like to know what hotels you can recommend that have cave bedrooms and spectacular views of the town (I'm cheating on a couple of the photos, to shoot them from my bedroom window!). I don't mind if it's pricey, but it has to be worth the cost. I'm leaning toward the Hotel Sassi, and recent reviews of the place are favorable.

      Does anyone know if all the trains you book for night travel automatically include sleeping quarters? Is there anyone who can give me some good advice on traveling by train. It appears there is more than one company, and prices vary.

      Travel to and 'after' Matera

      by lillyia Online Now Nov 20, 2004 at 5:07 PM

      Hello, Probably I'll visit Italy (Matera and Grotole) for this year's Christmas. I'll spend there about one week. My questions are in the field 'How to reach... .': I can fly to Milan or Rome. Can you help me - where it is easier to reach Matera? Is it better by train, or, probably busses are more convenient? After that I have to leave for Grotole. How is the public transport? Do you think I'll manage knowing almost any Italian? Thanks for your help, and greetings from Bulgaria. You are welcome if you are coming here. Have a nice day, Lillyia
