I would like to know the Sunday hours of the Cathedral and Cloisters, and the time of services. The LP guide said that at the time of written the 389 was temporarily out of service - is this true today? Any restaurant suggestion? Thank for your help. Bill

Hi all

I am after the most scenic option to get from San Remo to Genoa. So... train or drive.

Some background...

  • there will be three of us travelling, 2 adults and a 6 year old

  • we need to do it in one day

  • we will be travelling early July

Ultimately I don't mind either, there are different freedoms with both transport options with a 6 year old, but would like the most scenic option.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Kym

Hi all,

I will be travelling to Milan in Oct 2016 and have some questions as follows:

  1. I have a transit in Jeddah (connection for 9 hours in the day). Is there anything worth seeing during the connection flight?

  2. How well-connected is the subway, bus and tram services in Milan to all the tourist attractions?

a. Is there a mobile/desktop app which displays the stop-by-stop information for the bus/tram service which I will be taking?

i. Otherwise, what is the best way to…

Hey everyone.

I'm currently weighing up where to travel for the first three weeks of August. It'll be Eastern Europe or Italy I reckon. I know Eastern Europe will much cheaper, but I'm just curious if Italy will be too expensive for me right now.

I would be staying in hostels, using buses/trains to get from town to town and eating as cheap as possible. I'm also not a big drinker and I wouldn't bother seeing a lot of night life/clubs. However, I'd probably choose to see most tourist attractions…

A one-week rented car from Maggliore car rental in Milan was part of the package deal we had through Gate 1 Travel. We wrote off or shrugged off rudeness we encountered when we checked in to get the car; their rushed (mis)instructions on where to find the car; that the car turned out not to be where they said it was; that we had to show them the tank wasn't full when we got the car, as their "records" showed it was; and the absence of any basic information such as how to turn the wipers on and…

We were surprised that we barely needed any cash at all during our (all-too short) one-week visit to Tuscany. Our package deal had us flying into and out of Milan, staying in Montecatini, and included breakfast and a rental car. Visa and Mastercard, both credit and debit, were accepted at every gas station and toll booth we encountered, from Milan to Montecatini and Montecatini to Siena.

We used credit cards for the trains between Montecatini and Florence, and between Malpensa Airport and…

Hello All,
I will have a very short transfer through Pisa en route to a wedding in Florence & would love to know where I can have the best view of the Tower. Unfortunately I will be too rushed to make a proper trip (flight lands at 3:20 & train to Florence departs 7pm), but I can't imagine being in Pisa & not seeing such a famous monument. I've read the Grand Hotel Duomo nearby has a nice rooftop bar so I'm hoping to grab luggage & taxi over, have wine at bar & taxi back to train station. Given…

I've been to Italy several times, in an Interrail trip to north (Milan-Verona-Padua-Venice) and three times to Rome but It'll be my first trip south of Rome.

Day 1:Flight to Rome, train to Florence
Day 2:Day in Florence, evening train back to Rome
Day 3:Morning flight to Cagliari, Sardinia
Day 4:Sardinia
Day 5:Sardinia
Day 6:Sardinia
