My husband and I are visiting Italy for the first time. We arrive in Rome 24th April and depart Rome 5th May. We want to see Rome, Venice and the Amalfi Coast. Do we have enough time and how much time should we spend in each? We can use trains and/or planes. Thank you
Hi- We bought our plane tickets for May, knowing that May is a beautiful time to visit Italy. Unfortunately, we didn't take into account that farther north, it's still, kind of, winter.
We are trying to find lodging in the Dolomites, and keep getting messages back that everything is closed. My question - is it worth visiting the Dolomites in mid-late May, IF we find someplace that is open? Is it too risky with the weather (meaning we won't see anything because of fog/clouds). Will any shops…
I planned a 30 days trip through Italy next June. My trip is almost all planned but there are some questions for which answers I have not yet managed. They are:
1- I want to go from Pisa to San Gimignano. Has no direct bus or train? What is the best and fastest option?
2- I want to rent a car in Siena to visit Tuscany in 5 days and return it in Orvieto. I did not find any company that operates in these areas. Anyone know?
3- I want to go to Sorrento from Orvietto by public transport. What is…
I have to be in Trieste for a week (March 17th to 24th). From what I've read the strong Bora wind can occur in March. I know this is a vague question, but what are the chances of my travel planes being disrupted by cancellations and so on? I have to get an early flight to Rome on March 24th to pick up my return flight to Helsinki and beyond.
Grateful to all who had suggestions on classical wanderings, as well as to those who answered others' relevant questions. Extended our mother-daughter October trip to two full weeks and had a blast in Rome, Naples and Amalfi, with time to see a bit each of Caserta, Capri, Tivoli and Paestum. Blown away by Pompeii and the archeological museum in Naples and well aware we only scratched the surface of Rome in six days. Trenitalia was easy and cheap. Saving up hellobamboo's lesser-known corners of…
My Fiancé and I wanted to do something different for our wedding, we decided since we have always wanted to go to Italy why not get married there and then back pack for a few weeks after as our honeymoon! I am already so overwhelmed with all the wedding planning now trying to figure out where all the great hidden gems are is very hard! I am writing this hoping a few people have some great suggestions on unique places for us to visit.
We are Flying into Rome but are getting…
Ia m traveling to this area From Jan-Apr 2015. Just curious how much snow there will be usually? Also, how cold does it normally get?
I am wondering as I am debating buying some boots for the season. I found some Rockport boots that can be dressed up but also provide waterproofing and good grip for snow/ice. I will be wearing dress pants and biz casual clothing at work.
So, how is the winter in this area and are the boots needed? Thank you.
Would like your advice:
My wife and I are planning a 6 day travel to southern Italy in February. We are undecided as whether to go to Napoli and the Almafi cost or Pulgia. We just don't have enough time for both.
Considering the time of year - which is preferred? Would Pulgia's attractions be closed?
My partner and I are traveling the Naples-Pompei-Amalfi-Sicily route for 9 days from Dec 30 to January 7. This is our first time in this part of Italy. Our interests are historical sites (her), food (me) and just exploring interesting neighborhoods.
How would you recommend we space out our trip in terms of how many days/nights should we spend on each spot? And what's the best way to get from one spot to the next?
