      Via Francigena San Gimignano to Siena

      I have 4 days in Tuscanny in mid october and I was thinking about doing part of the Via Francigena, more specifically San Gimignano to Siena, or Ponte d'arbia to San Quirico. I like to take photos so which one of these would be nicest in fall. Or any other 3 day walks recommended in fall in that area? From what I have read its quite feasible to do it alone as it is quite well marked and with signs, but I find very little information about doing it alone, mostly tours. I am planning on taking the bus to San Gimignano and starting the next morning, does that sounds ok?

    • Amalfi base in early April

      Sorrento Oct 18, 2016 at 4:57 PM


      My fiance and I are planning out the details of our honeymoon, and will have 4 nights (2 full days, 2 partial days) to spend in the Amalfi region in the beginning of April. We will head there from Rome, and need to go back to Rome at the end of our last day for our flight home.

      I've done a lot of research and I can't decide on the best city in the region to base ourselves; I'd appreciate some help in making that decisions. I am aware that it is low season and some hotels will be closed and the buses/ferries will be more limited.

      Things that we want to do/see (hopefully with fairly easy transport from our base) -
      - Pompeii
      - coastal views, hiking, +/- horseback riding if we can find somewhere reasonably priced and the weather cooperates
      - possibly Paestum (both ruins and mozzarella) - if we have time, not super high on the priority list
      - not sure about Capri, leaning against it

      Things we are less interested in -
      - shopping, souvenir shops
      - beach time (not the time of a year, not a priority)
      - high-end tourism/restaurants/bars
      - Naples

      Any pointers on where we should use as a homebase and how to spend our days with these things in mind? Sorrento is what I've heard is the easiest base, but I've also been reading about some of the smaller towns being potential options (Vietri Sul Mare near Salerno, others) - what is the best choice given time of year and ease of transport?

      If Aosta is not a good place, could u suggest me a place for Alps sightseeing in Italy. Or should I just go to Charmonix or Zermatt?

      My husband and I are attempting to reserve the earliest bus departing Courmayeur for our upcoming trip in August, on a Thursday morning. We are having difficulty booking it on the website, however, and were hoping somebody could provide some insight and help. When trying to reserve the earliest bus, at 6:45 am, we get an error message: "La tratta 058561->010001 utilizzata sulla corsa 36398 non è tariffabile," which translates on google translate to "Trafficking 058561 -> 010001 used on race and pricing, not 36,398." An "x" appears where we would select that bus, and we can not book it.

      Any thoughts/suggestions?

      We do seem able to reserve a later bus, however this would mean us missing our connection in Aosta.

      Thank you in advance for helping us out in this frustrating situation!
