      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,
      Gelena

      Planning on renting a car

      Sardegna Jan 17, 2017 at 11:19 AM

      Hi there,
      We are planning on taking a ferry from mainland Italy to Olbia. From Olbia, we have to get to Palau, which is 45 minutes away.
      I was "strongly recommended" to rent a car. Does anyone know if we'd be better off renting a car in Olbia, or bringing one on the ferry from mainland Italy?
      I looked into renting a car in Olbia, and the prices were outrageous (we need one for 5 days.) Does anyone know which rental company I should look into, and how much we can expect to pay?
      Grazie!
      Kristin

    • 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.

      I am thinking about catching bus 100 from Nice to Menton but then how do I get from Menton to Pisa?

      Is there a local company that goes from Menton to Ventamiglia and then another local company that goes from Ventamiglia to Pisa?

    • Ventimiglia to Levanto!

      by Jennifermorcom Online Now Jan 22, 2014 at 11:49 AM

      I am travelling from Avignon to Levanto by train with a 10 minute change at Nice Ville and a 19 minute change at Ventimiglia if I want to catch the Intercity to Levanto. As all the connections depend on the trains being on time I thought maybe I would be better grabbing something to eat at Ventimiglia station and catching the Regional train which departs later and has no changes. Does anyone know what the facilities are like at Ventimiglia station how easy is it to buy rail tickets there and how comfortable is the regional train as it seems to stop every 5 minutes but al least I don't have any changes. How busy is it likely to be beginning of May as I will have already been travelling 6 hours by train and looking to another four and a half on this train. Has anyone been on it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pickpockets in Ventimiglia train station

      by danhec Online Now Sep 4, 2013 at 4:29 AM

      I wear cargo pants and my wallet is always in a side pocket closed with strong Velcro. I thought that was safe until my trip on Friday August 30, 2013.

      That afternoon, in Ventimiglia station, while I was about to board the train, suddenly two men came out of nowhere and quickly helped me with my heavy suitcase and knapsack. I appreciated the gesture although I found it strange that I had not seen them coming and that they did not stay on the train after helping me.

      It’s only the next morning that I discovered that my wallet was missing. I know for sure that my wallet was in my pocket when I intended to board the train, and that between Ventimiglia and my destination, I did not take it out of my pocket. The Velcro makes it hard to open the pocket and the scratch noise is loud. However, when pulled quickly with force, it’s not as noticeable especially in a noisy environment and among confusion.

      Being careful is not enough if one is not totally aware of one’s environment especially in high theft zones. Coincidentally, after I related my story to my sister who lives in France, she told me that the day before she had just watched a TV programme about thefts on the trains between Nice and Ventimiglia, describing my experience. I wish I had seen that programme before boarding my train!

      Taxi from railway staion to St. Michael’s church

      by Muscovite Online Now Aug 7, 2013 at 5:09 AM

      I am still trying to reach St. Michael’s church (see question below)
      Leics, thanks for the schedule – very helpful. Liceo Rossi – is it the famous cave?
      Rosata, saved the link, but I am afraid I cannot ask them to open the church specially for me free of charge in crisis times, and I cannot afford an individual tour either.
      Anyway, one bus in an hour – that’s way too rare, and as it is just 10 minutes’ drive the taxi won’t be too expensive.
      The point is – is there a taxi in Ventimiglia? I’ve never seen any. And how does one hail it?
      Thanks!

      Anyone can tell me the schedule of St.Michael's church in Ventimiglia ?
      Last year it was open only 10 - 12 on Sundays (I mean to go there in September)
      Second question -
      Bus schedule to Ventimiglia Alta fron the railway station. Last year it was once in an hour - not very convenient when one goes from Nice. And climbing on foot is no great choice.
      One can still pay the bus driver in cash - about 1 euro?
