      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!

      My husband and I will be traveling to Italy this summer, traveling primarily in Umbria. We will be staying in Orvieto and Trevi and will explore the areas surrounding these two towns. We also plan to take a couple of day trips to Rome. My question is this: are both Visa and MasterCard generally accepted in Umbria? On a previous trip to Switzerland we found that MasterCard was accepted more often than Visa, particularly at food markets. I'm trying to decide if I should have one of each card to make sure we don't have any problems.

      In restaurants in Orvieto, it is possible to share perhaps one of the courses. Because we do not eat a lot, yet like a variety, it gives us an opprtunity to sample things we might not order.
