I’m considering walking Alta Via 1 in September (potentially 12th -21st).
If I go ahead, I am planning to do it on my own. So my main question – is this a good idea?! I am a reasonably experience hiker, fit, strong, determined, confident in my ability and a head for heights. I’ve walked long distance trails, but not on my own. Are there lots of other people doing the trail at this time of year? This would reassure me somewhat, knowing that other people are fairly nearby at most times!
I'll be traveling from Malta to Italy somewhere around the end of October/early November. Was originally going to fly into Naples to explore the Amalfi coast region before heading to Rome. If my budget allows at the time I was thinking of flying into Catani and taking a week to ten days to travel via land up the West Coast to Naples instead.

Hello there community. I am planning on coming to the dolomites from Malta. I once went there about 12 or so years ago. I went on a bus tour.

Admittedly we do have an old map, but can anyone tell me if there really is a car train shuttle from Iselle to Brig ( or further on?) and if so, how is it indicated in Italy? Have never had any…
We are a family of four arriving at Venice airport on Sep 5, 2016. What is the best transport for going from airport to the hotel. The hotel is on the canal near Rialto bridge. We do not want to move with the heavy luggage or shift from one transport to another. I understand there are water taxi for private transfer. I heard there is Venice film festival during this period; and many taxi companies may not be available. Do I need to book the private taxi in advance on line; or it would be easier…
