      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!

      Vespa rentals

      Siena Feb 4, 2017 at 6:38 AM

      We want to rent vespas while in Siena. Found a company that will bring them to our hotel. Is it best to do this with a tour, or would we be good to head out without a guide?

    • restaurant after opera?

      Naples Jan 25, 2017 at 4:21 AM

      During our visit to Napoli in the end of April, we'll see "La Traviata" at the Opera, it starts at 20:00, so won't be over until at least 23.00. Fortunately it's a Saturday.
      Who knows of a (nice) restaurant nearby that still serves food that late?

      Vespa rental in Siena

      Italy Jan 24, 2017 at 7:41 PM

      We are headed to Siena for 3 nights and thought it would be fun to rent Vespas for a day to explore. Thoughts on this.....none of us have ever driven/ridden a Vespa. If we do this and not being part of tour, is that advisable? I think it could be a fun adventure, but are we biting off more than we can chew?

    • Looking for cool local spots in Turin!

      Torino Jul 15, 2016 at 4:21 AM

      I´m working on a startup-project which will provide travelers in Turin a fun and interactive way to explore the city! Therefore, I´m looking for local spots that could be of interests for travelers. It could be a hidden café/restaurant, a building of a famous person, a historical stone, anything you can come up with! I´m also looking for cool activities you could do in the city, or local food „challenges“. The places can be a bit outside the city (max 20 km), but need to have a public transport connection.
      I appreciate all tips you can give me!

I want to go visit the land of my ancestors and get a good feel of the area. I have no idea where to stay as a base location and I don’t know anything about the area as all of the old family has passed away. Where to stay? What to do? Local guides? Where to eat?

    • Best route by Train or Car

      Torino Apr 29, 2016 at 7:19 PM

      I am trying to decide whether to book Train Trip or Rideshare from Ventimiglia to Torino. Would like an opinion on whether to go via Cuneo or Savona. Is Cuneo route better by train than car? I have heard its very scenic by train. This trip will be on 1/7/16 I will be visiting other places on the Mediterranean as once in Italy from France I will be in Naples by 10/7 and doing Amalfi Coast day trip. So I am thinking Cuneo as a preference??
