      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?

      Thinking of studying in Politecnico di Bari

      I am from Serbia, I have one more year of high school and i plan on continuing my education in Italy. The options are still open but i plan on studying in Politecnico di Bari as the south of the country is closer to me and probably less expensive that the north. Now i am only Google searching Bari, but i would like someone that had experience with studying in Bari(Italians or foreigners opinion welcome) to tell me how is it. I am also curious about the sea, since it is a port city i believe the water is not the cleanest to bath in? Also just open for experiences and recommendations of Bari citizens and students. Grazie!
