My 22 year old daughter & I are going to 'Rome' in April. Neither of us have been. We're the adventurous type, and are very comfortable living out of our backpacks for a couple of weeks. We'd rather sit by the fire drinking wine on the beach than go to a 5 star restaurant. We're staying in hostels for the duration. We're going for the history, the ruins, the food, the 'culture'. We have to do the 'must see' sights, but don't want to spend the entire trip in the city.
would like to see…
I will be traveling to Italy for work next week and I planned to have my wife and 8 month year old baby go with me while I’m there. We planned to stay in Italy for 2 weeks, and planned to visit all the major cities in Italy and have booked all of our flights, hotels, and rail passes, however, with the recent Ebola outbreak scare, I am not sure if it is safe for them to still go, especially our 8 month year old. Also I heard there was/is an issue with the Measles virus in Europe, and that…
Hi, Can anyone advise me where to visit along the coast of Pompei. We have one free day left and do not want to drive on the motorways. Are there any roads to take that bring us to pretty villages or towns? Amalfi is too far and Sorrento may be too busy.

Need advice on travel to Italy. Best air and land packages (15 days), This is our first time visiting Europe/Italy. We are in our mid 50's active and healthy. We love history, art, music, food and wine :). We're traveling with another couple. We would like to visit Rome in May, June, August or September. We don't mind cruising, but heard from others seeing Italy by land (tours included) is the best way to go for first timers. We are recently retired, and this will be our…
Hello! First timer here. Traveling to Palermo with my girlfriend and arriving Easter weekend. Will public transport be available from the airport on Easter Sunday? Also was wondering if restaurants/cafes would be open on Sunday and Monday. Many thanks for the info.
I am planning a visit to Italy in the beginning of November. It will be my second time in Italy (the first was about 10 years ago, and included Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan, for about 2 weeks. Therefore, I don`t want to visit all the "must sees" that I have seen in the first visit).

Day 1- arriving to Rome early morning
Day 2- (From Rome) Naples
Day 3- Pompei
Day 4- Viterbo (arriving from Naples, must be there on Day 5, not…
My wife and I are thinking of travelling with our then 2 year toddler in May 2015 to Italy and France from the US. The goal of the trip is to see some (not too much) classic sights in Rome/Florence and otherwise be relaxed and have some good food. We have been to France before but not Italy. We want to avoid renting a car if possible. We will have a stroller - CITI MINI GT. Apologies for not having much filled in, I just snagged seats in a fare war and am at the moment not sure of…
The bad weather in Liguria over the past few days has now moved south into Tuscany. Some roads and bridges are out in the area of Orbetello. Two people lost their lives last night when a river overflowed near Albinia.
Avoid the area for the time being.
