      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!

    • 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?

    • travelling to outskirts of Ravenna

      by chuckjung2013 Online Now Jul 15, 2014 at 7:47 AM

      hello again
      My wife and I are excited as it is now about six weeks before we head off to Ravenna. We'll be heading off at different times and staying at different places as she is part of a Dragon Boat Team heading over at the end of August, and I'll be making some side stops before I go watch her paddle.

      My wife will be staying at a hotel in Cesenatico with her team. After the festival, she will break away from her tour group and meet me in Ravenna. What are some of the ways for her to get from Cesenatico to Ravenna? She usually doesn't travel without me, so she is getting a little nervous.

      As I will be staying in Ravenna, what are the ways to get from Ravenna to Stadiana Bacin where the festival is being held. I emailed the tourist bureau and haven't got a response yet. Do people know of the best way for me to get there or are will they have shuttles to take people back and forth.

      by sylric12 Online Now Feb 1, 2014 at 12:08 PM

      I went to restaurant reviews for Ravenna, Italy and found nothing more recent than 2012. Anyone been there lately? We will be 4 adults, two of them Italian, my mother and step dad, and would like something central but not over-the-top expensive, for dinner. Willing to make reservations. Also is there a day of the week when everything shuts down? It made me nervous when I saw that one restaurant closed on Tuesdays since that is the day of the week when we will be there.
      Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

      My Italian is very basic at the moment and I'll be moving from NYC.

      .Near the beach (preferably with some good beach volleyball);
      .Small town where government is efficient and paperwork gets processed promptly;
      .There are people (preferably single) in their 20's and 30's.
