My husband and I will be travelling to Italy from September 23-October 10th and we plan to rent a car for the entire time. We are set on visiting Piedmont (Alba), Tuscany (Chianti & Montalcino), Emilia- Romagna (Parma, Modena, Bologna) and Umbria (I haven't decided the towns yet). We will also want to do a day trip to Florence and Pisa. I keep going around and around trying to figure out the best ways to piece this together so I can at least book our flights and car rental.

Maybe someone has…

Hi everyone, i was wondering if you can advise me with some information.

Me and my girlfriend will take a train from Bari to Salerno this Saturday and spend the next week in the beautiful Amalfi Coast.

I have some concerns because we will arrive at 8pm in Caserta and change the train to a Regional train that will depart one hour later (9 pm) and will arrive in Salerno at 10pm.

Should I be worried wandering around Caserta railway station ?

Are the regional trains safe during evening hours ?

We will be renting a car in Italy with our Visa card. We have the luxury of having insurance provided through the credit card. The representative at the credit card said Italy may require that we purchase a collision damage insurance as well through the rental company. Is this true?

Hi - can anyone advise on the safety aspect in Naples? I'm hearing quite a lot of warnings and am getting a bit concerned for my upcoming trip. I tend to think security perception is relative (I'm from New York City which many deem terrifying unsafe, yet I've never experienced a bad incident and feel comfortable walking alone at night). While I know it's fairly unwise to wear thick gold chains when going down a dark desolate alley or count $100 bills in the subway, what I'm hearing about Naples…

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could recommend an apart-hotel in Venice (a twin room with small kitchenette). I have looked at airbnb rentals, but we are a small group and would like to be in the same building, but still housed in an apartment like accommodation. Thanks for the help.

Or other possibilities to do this leg with public transport?

So I will be travelling around Campania for 5 days in September with my friend who is from Campania. I just want to be prepared before I go. This is how the trip is planned:

Day 1 - in the Italian countryside near to Benevento (at my friend's house)
Day 2 - a quiet day in Benevento
Day 3 - Sorrento, what would you recommend to do here? Would it be good to take a boat to Capri for a few hours?
Day 4 & 5 Naples - I hope to see the main sights here, like the palace, the two castles and some of the…
