      1.Easiest way to get to Naples from Rome 2. Hotels in Island of Ischia

      Naples Jan 8, 2017 at 3:01 PM

      Dear local experts:
      I am traveling from Los Angeles CA, will land in Rome. 1. What is the quickest and easiest way to get from Rome to Naples. Please give me specific links, your personal experience, etc.
      I will stay a couple of days in Naples. I want to book a hotel on the island of Ischia and also want to spend at least one entire day in Prochida. I understand that the same ferry that runs from Naples stops on both islands - Prochida and ischia. How much is a ticket (average)?
      2. What hotel on Ischia is NICE, having a good THERMAL pool, a spa facility (sauna, jakuzzi), near beaches AND up to 150 US dollars a night? (hope it exists :-)
      Thank you all. Best,

    • Summer holiday

      Italy Jan 11, 2017 at 3:13 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a little old town within walking distance.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      We'd love to visit Italy, also considering Greece and France, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

    • Which resort to stay at Lake Garda?

      Lago di Garda Jan 5, 2017 at 1:52 AM

      Hello, what a great website. Hope someone can help with this. Me and my partner are hoping to go to Lake Garda in the summer but we are unsure as to which resort to base ourselves at. We are both 40 and although we are definitely beyond wanting a Club 18/30 type holiday we still want a nice lively resort that has a nice nightlife until fairly late at night. Last year we went to Sorrento and this was absolutely fantastic, lots of open-air restaurants, bars and even traditional music and singing in the streets at night, this was just perfect, so we wondered if any Lake Garda resort offered something similar? I was maybe thinking of Sirmione or Garda as a base as those would both be easier for us to get to, but I have no idea what the nightlife would be like. Hope someone can help? Thanks, Sarah.

    • Good food and wine

      Venice Dec 20, 2016 at 2:00 PM

      Hi, we will be spending 7 days in venice, including New Years Eve. We want to make sure that we sample great food and wine during our trip, as this is our passion. It doesn't have to be high end but it does have to be high quality. We are wanting to kick back and have a (relatively) stress free and memorable time. We are staying in a centrally based apartment so are happy to cook, but would much prefer to eat out - especially in less touristy (yes, I know - Venice is a tourist destination...) areas. All tips gratefully recieved.

    • Genova or Perugia?

      Italy Dec 18, 2016 at 2:10 AM

      Hi! I'm going to spend a month in Italy (July) and I have to choose between Genova and Perugia. I think, Perugia offers more opportunities for excursions (Roma, Firenze, Pisa) but...does it have a good social life (museums, buildings and nightlife) ? On the other hand, Genova is close only to Milan but has a lot of things to do. What do you tihnk?

      And of course...which city is more expensive?

      Thanks a lot!

      Hello there,
      I'm arriving with the ferry in Savona from Corsika early in the morning (7.15 am), and I have a flight from Milan Malpensa airport at 15.15 pm. Does anybody knows, if the bus station is close to the port and what is the schedule to the bus from Savona to Milan,is it regular,which is the earliest, how much time do I need to reach Milan etc.
      And when I arrive in Milan can I take the direct shuttle to the airport from the same bus station or I have to go otherwise? My time is very limited and I'm afraid not to miss my flight cause I don't know Italy at all... Thank you.
