We are traveling with 2 adult children spending our first and last days in Rome and a week in between in Monterosso including some anticipated day trips. Is it better to rent a car or travel by train? If by train, is it better to buy daily tickets or a weekly rail pass?
We anticipate arriving in Italy about 10 Sept. -- our Indian visas expire on 14 Sept. Expect our Toyota 4Runner to arrive late October (shipping from Bombay, India). Therefore we have roughly six plus weeks to explore the one or all of the following areas:
Turnin, Milan and the lakes, and Cinque Terre
Trento and the Dolomites
The remainder of Italy we will explore after we pick up our 4Runner at a port (don't know which port we are shipping to at this time).
I had a chance to see Santa Maria Antiqua in Rome last May. I have found some conflicting information, but is anyone aware if it is still open and if it will be open this coming December (of 2017)?
Could someone advise me about beach chair prices in the Giardini Naxos area? How much they cost x day xperson in July ? I am planning my travel budget here. Also, where abouts are the free beaches around Lido Sayonara, are they easily found?
Thanks in advance, grazie mille :)
It's the travellers best friend. Works for regularity better than anything I've come across—but the best I've found is sweetened berry flavoured products which are expensive. This should be very cheap, and I feel the raw product works the best. Any thoughts welcome (especially for Florence/Rome).
I am 42 and have been driving since 1992 with my home State's licence issued then. I moved States in Australia so that my new driver's licence in Queensland was issued in May 2017.
So even though I've been driving for 25 years the current new drivers licence says it was only issued in the last few months. I had to hand in the old driver's licence when I was issued the new one.
I see car hire companies in Italy and Greece say you have to have a full valid driver's licence is required for a…
I was thinking to end our tuscanny trip there. To drive from our last place in Tuscanny to Pisa airport, return the car (it will be a Sunday and as I checked I saw only the Pisa airport car agencies are active on Sundays.. In La Spezia they are closed, at least those I checked )
go from Pisa airport to Pisa train station (a very quick bus/train ride) take the train to La Spezia (also quite short ride). This will be a Sunday noon (in September) , then I planned to see the Cinque Terre on…
Somewhere recently I saw mention of an out-of-the-way restaurant in Rome in the old Jewish quarter nestled into the ruins (of the walls perhaps?). I wrote down the name of it but am not able to find it now. Could anyone help? Also, we will be staying on Via Cavour near Via dei Fori Imperiali. Any restaurant suggestions for that area would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone know of any rental car companies that let you take a car on the ferry from Palau to La Maddalena?
Please advise. We are thinking of visiting La Maddalena for two nights, and do need a car to get around.
