      Via Francigena San Gimignano to Siena

      Tuscany Oct 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM


      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?

    • 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!

      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?
