      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,

      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?

    • 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.

    • Is it safe for 19 yr old female to travel (coming from US) from Venice to Vicenza alone?

      by Medavinci Online Now Apr 30, 2015 at 12:42 PM

      My daughter (19) is supposed to attend a program a program in Italy for four weeks. She's never been there before. She has to fly into Venice, then catch a bus (20-25 minute ride) to the train station for a 1-1.5 hour ride to Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza and walk to Hotel del Ponte. She will be there for weeks one and four. For weeks two and three, they will be moving to College Valmarana Morosini (in Altavilla Vicentina, Vicenza). I'm not too concerned ince she meets up with the group in Bassano. It's just getting from the airport to Bassano alone. At some point they will be traveling to Milan (Ca’ Del Bosco, Franciacorta) and the director suggested my daughter could fly into Milan but then it would be a 3.5 hr train ride to Bassano. I wanted to fly over with her, but I can't fford to do so. Thank you!

      I'm still deciding whether to stay a couple of nights in Vicenza, (and use the train to visit Verona for a day as well,) or stay in Verona. If it's the latter, I'd visit Vicenza for the day, on the way to Venice, and need to store a large suitcase for a few hours. Is such a service available in Vicenza, and if so, would anyone have a rough idea of the charge per bag?

    • Transportation to Monte di Malo

      by RVLZ Online Now May 11, 2010 at 5:22 PM

      We would like to do a day trip [it may be a very loooong day] from Venice to Vicenza and then somehow north to Monte di Malo, where my husband's grandmother was from. I looked at the bus schedule but that might take us all day [if not days...], plus many of the routes are only available during the school year.
      I would gladly spend the day in Vicenza, but it looks like there's still a relative of his living in Monte di Malo, and if we're that close, we might as well go all the way.
      I assume we could rent a car for a day.
      Would it be possible to hire a driver, or would that be ridiculously expensive?
      Any suggestions or advice would be welcomed!

      1. I will follow this with a week in Venice
      2. I prefer the feel of smaller towns and love "living like a local" as much as possible
      3. Want easy access to a main train line for exploring the area
      4. Would love to be able to just head out and safely walk around looking at all the beauty of the city
      5. This would be first week in June so the fewer the tourists, the better
      6. Right now preference is Vicenza, Padova, Verona
