Tuscany

Hi there Fellow intrepid travellers

We are planning to spend 2 weeks in Tuscany this September and plan to kick off from Florence and hope to learn of the must see towns in this splendid area. I am aware of the major attractions in Siena, Monteriggioni and Montepuiciano and am keen to learn of other must see localities.

I do enjoy the odd glass of red and my wife is keen to discover that hill top town with breath taking views; local fare etc.

What are the pitfalls of travelling by car?

Hi All,

I am making a 1 day trip from Rome to Florence. Wondering if it's possible to see Florence's main sites and take a tour of Tuscany all in 1 day or if that is squeezing too much in? I'd rather not take another train ride the next day to see Tuscany separately. I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions on this! Also, if you can suggest any tours that do Florence and Tuscany in a day that would be great. thanks!

Hi,

We plan a trip with two kids (aged 10 and 6) to Lake Garda for about a week in September, and would like to stay in one place. We still don't know the area very well and don't have specific plans- but did hear for example that there are some nice family parks (like Gardaland). We would also like to stay somewhere that is relatively quite. Can anyone recommend such a place/ places? What do you think about Salo- would that be too far from the points of interest? (we would sure also love to…

Does anyone know if there are beaches in the Palermo or Castellemare del Golfo area that have chairs and umbrellas for rent? Everyone has told me there is no such thing in Sicily and I am VERY fair. Any spots? Thank you.

Hello everyone!
I'm in the country at present and thinking on visiting the Puglia coast next week. Any recommendations?
I'm looking for a travel buddy, but if not, I'm a young woman traveling alone, would that be a problem?
Any recommendations as to affordable accommodation?
I am also looking for affordable accommodation in Florence!
Many thanks!

Hi all, hoping you can give me some advice. We are a family of 4 (kids all grown up!) and we will be in Venice for 3 nights and 2 and a half days before we go to Slovenia to visit friends. ANY suggestions on things we can do? I will try and book a day tour for us in Venice (any thoughts on this?). We don't mind taking a train and go exploring outside of Venice. I have no idea where to start. This was a very last minute decision and I am totally unprepared for this. ANY suggestions would be much…

Hello all!
Greetings from Portugal:):):)

I need a little help!
I will arrive at Vigo di Fassa in a Sunday (at around 19:00) and need to go to Passo san Pellegrino that same day.
I ask for some quotes from taxi companies and they quoted me around 60€ for the 18km ride.
I find it a little expensive but I have no idea what the taxi rates in Italy are. Can someone tell me if this is a "normal" rate for this kind of service?

Also, will I be able to just grab a taxi after arrival or is it better…

We will be traveling by car this summer. I am interested in advice about staying in a nearby town and taking a bus/train/boat to Venice versus leaving the car in a carpark (for two nights) and staying in Venice proper. Has any one had experience doing the latter? Are there safe carparks near Venice where I can leave a rental car for two nights without worries?

If not, what recommendations do you have about the most convenient place to stay near Venice?

Thanks!

I will be going to Positano in late July and will be doing a lot of cooking (I am a chef and will be cooking for my client and their guests in their villa). I'm looking forward to the experience but apprehensive about shopping. I am assuming there is a butcher and a bakery, maybe a cheese shop and hopefully a place to get fresh seafood but is there a small "super market" to get the essentials (soap, trash bags etc...). My client's villa is about 100 feet from the beach on Via Marina Grande
