      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!

      How many days?

      Florence Feb 2, 2017 at 6:00 PM

      We are planning on a trip to Rome and Florence for 7 days total. I've been to Rome and think we need 4 days to get the best experience, but that leaves 3 days for Florence. Is that enough? One of us want to see Florence above all cities in Italy (not me, I want to see Rome). Thanks!

      somebody knows the schedule of the bus Savona- Milan?

      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.
