Hello everyone! I hope it won´t bother you but as I am going to these two beautiful cities (Parma and Bologna) and I saw the situation in Italy is not as safe as it used to be, I wanted to ask you how it is there. I am just going to spend there a week and my parents are scared of letting me go. Can you, please, give me an answer about the migrants there and if it is still safe for a tourist or what places might be dangerous? Thank you very much in advance for any help!!
I will be attending a wedding in Selva di Fasano, Bari in July. The wedding party assemble a few days before the wedding and we are thinking about organising a bachelorette party on a Wednesday night. I've had a good search, but am having trouble coming up with ideas - can anyone help?!
There will be around 15 of us, mixed ages and interests. Food, party bus, classes... anything?!
I'm a solo female traveler (Canadian based in Tokyo) and have just booked a ticket to Rome leaving in three days for three weeks! :) It's only
I arrive into the airport in Rome (Leonardo da Vinci) at 9:30 pm. I tend to be quite cautious when traveling and have luckily been safe in all my travels so far, and I'm worried about getting into the city center to a hostel that late. I am on a fairly tight budget though and the hotels I've looked into were quite expensive (I have just…
Hey everyone! I'm planning to enrol in a gelato course with Carpigiani Gelato University, Bologna, in Aug/end of Sept/Oct - it is the introductory course going over all the basics of how to open a gelato shop, but in a private session condensed into 3 days instead of the usual 5 days, with maximum of 3 students.
I am looking for two other people who are interested in attending the course (in English). With 3 people, the price per person ends up being almost 300 euro less than the 5 day open…
We are thinking of spending a day in Milano on our way from Chamonix to Garda lake. I understand that it's very expensive to park inside the city itself and that there are parking lots just outside near metro stations. Where would be the nearest parking lot when coming from the Chamonix direction? Or do you have any other recommendations regarding parking there?
Also- does anyone know the Leonardo Da- Vincy science museum? Do you recommend it?
In September, my girlfriend and I will spend two weeks in Italy. First, we will visit Venice, then Florence (including a daytrip to Cinque Terre).

On Wednesday morning, we would like to start a short 3 day trip to the Amalfi Coast, departing from Rome. We are flying back home on Saturday from Naples airport (7:00 a.m.). Basically, we have Wednesday, Thursday and…
I was wondering if people had any recommendations for wine tours near Sienna for moderate/less expensive choices? Or vineyards? I was planning to airbnb near Sienna.
My husband and 4 month-old daughter and I will be traveling in Italy the last two weeks of August. Because of the baby and also our desire not to be in a car the ENTIRE time, we will stay in just two places and have some days to enjoy downtime as well. The first week we will stay in Florence and use it also as a base to take a day trip or two to Siena, Luca, and maybe Pisa. The second week we are thinking of doing an Agriturismo or an AirBnB of some kind and I have read so many websites…
My friend and I are heading to Italy in August and would like to do a 2 or 3 night hike, staying in rufuges/mountain huts along the way. As we have a car, we can go anywhere. Our only criteria is that it has to be a round trip (so we can get back to the car) and an amazing hike- can be any level, just no ropes. We did a hike last year in Spain in the Pyrenees and it was breath-taking. We a looking for a similar memorable experience, but Italian style! Any ideas or suggestions…
5 friends and myself are planning a trek through the Dolomites this July. We would like to do the Alta Via 2, because it's more remote and less crowded than the classic Alta Via 1. We have no Via Ferrata experience though, but are used to trekking.
The route is mostly done in 10 days, but we only have 8 days for trekking. That means we can only do a part of it. Can anyone give me some advice on which is the best part of the Alta Via 2? I heard the first part is more rocky and the…
