My wife and i are spending sometime in Italy and are wanting to do a barista course.
I have done the standard google search but there really isn't much coming up.
I was wondering if anyone had done a course or know of any courses their friends have utilised.
We are spending a month in Rome, but it doesn't have to be in Rome, We can spend as long as we want in Italy ( well until the Bank Accountants says it is time to come home....)
As for duration i would be looking for something no longer than a week?
I and my wife plan a two weeks long vacation in in July this year Italy, of which about one week in the area of Puglia. The plan is to hire a car in Nápoli, drive to the seaside of Puglia and have a nice week or so there. Everything is of interest south of Bari. Back to Nápoli through the Amalfi coastline. I know that there are a lot of www-sites and I check so many of them as I can.
But I would like to know where we can find nice sandy beach(es) and clean water , with access to sunchairs, hopefully not very crowded. A hotel at the seaside, if possible direct access to the beach. If you have personal experience of the area by having hade vaccation there and can suggest beaches, hotels and sights - it would help a lot in our planing.
I am also keen on to get some advice about accomodation on the Amalfi coastline, e.g. in Posatino.
If you have experience of hirei... more »
I am a Greek citizen who wants to travel Italy by train. I would like to spend maximum 6 days and have a low budget also.
I am planning to buy the Interail card for 155 EURO ( which includes transfer fee from Hgoumenitsa to Ancona) and then spent 4 days to Rome, Florence, Venice and Ancona. I prefer quality from quantity too, but budget is low and I am looking to an andventurous trip rather than a luxury one. We are going to use night trains in order to save money from accomondation. I know that there will be extra cost for that.
What I would like to ask is whether you see this travel plan as functional. We will try to keep travel budget to 400Euro ( 200 for tickets and 50 * 4 days )?. Moreover, do you have an other suggestions for trips kind of that in Italy ? Staying at hostels is better option from using the night trains?
Thank you so much to everyone who helped us out on our last thread! We have finalized our itinerary and booked many of our hotels!
There are some final pieces of advice that I hope you can give! We are travelling the first 2 weeks of July. I know this itinerary is quick at times, my husband and I are healthy and active and will only have backpacks. Our plan is to experience Italy. Venice and Florence will be very busy but we plan to relax in Orvieto and Ischia and then be ready for the chaos of Rome! We will be relying on the train to get around.
Flying into Venice.
2 nights in Venice
2 nights in Florence
2 nights in Orvieto
3 nights in Ischia
4 nights in Rome
Flying out of Rome.
-We are still trying to decide whether we should drive or take the train from Florence to Orvieto, or if we should take the train and then rent a car to visit wine country... more »
We're flying into Milan next week and then driving to France (for a wedding) and we were hoping to drop into an Italian vineyard or two en route. Would anybod be able to recommend a particular vineyard or a good area for vineyards along that route (Milan - Savona - Sanremo passing just west of Pavia & just east of Alessandria)
I've done a good bit of searching online but the choice is huge and it's hard to choose!!
Thanks in advance
Im planning a road trip with my brother and some friends to Italy to go kite-surfing.
He is very good and i will be learning.
Any ideas where?
Thanks for your help in advance!
My girlfriend and I have about 12 days in Italy.
We're thinking -
**2-3 days in Rome **2 days in Amalfi Coast **1-2 days (unknown!) **5-6 days in Sicily
Do you have any strong feelings about incredibly romantic/amazing experiences in Sicily or Amalfi that we must go?
Either towns, sights or hotels?
We especially know little about Sicily! And haven't decided those two other days!
Thanks so much!!!!!

So I'm doing some advance scouting ahead of a planned 2 week canoe trip down the Po River (in September) from Milan to Venice. We will need to choose where to stop along the river - towns that are actually located along the bank of the river, with marinas where the canoes can be stashed for the night. I know this is a bit of a long shot, but if anyone is familiar with the route and could recommend places that may work for our purposes, it would really help. Towns that are good for stopover - small or large; places to eat or visit along the way; accommodation that might be able to handle about 20 people. A couple of us will be checking it out in person next week, but I thought it would be great to get some personal recommendations.
Yes, this is nuts. We are Canadians. What can I say?
I want to hike the GR20 but I only have 9 days on Corsica; apparently it takes 15 to do the whole trail. Are there any sections that aren't very interesting which I could skip? Which sections should I definitely not miss?
Also, if you can recommend hiking trails in Sardinia, I'll be there for a week as well (I've already done the Goruppu Gorge)
Thanks in advance!
can anyone recommend a place with a nice view to watch the sunrise? I'm planning to go to Levanto so I search for a place in the area of la spezia.
I appreciate any recommendations :)
I am flying to MIlan next week and I have 5 days.
I have seen milan, lake como and garda/ so the ig question is wher to spend my days in swiss, in dolomites.or in florence
thanks for the replies
I have made a reservation in Riomaggiore in Cinque Terra national park for 2 nights start of May. Because I am going by car I would be very gratefull if anybody can give me a tip where to leave my car for that time. I was thinking somewhere around main train station in La Spezia from where I can take the train. Is there maybe a free and safe parking?
Many thanks for all the comments.
My wife and I are flying into Pisa at the end of May and have 6 nights in total.
We would like to visit Florence, San Gimignano, Lucca, Siena and also spend a half day in Pisa.
We are thinking that we would like to travel by train but I don't know if is possible to visit all of these places by train?
If anybody could recommend an itinerary it would be much appreciated.
we also would like to pick two bases and stay 3 nights in each so any recommendations on where to stay for out two stops would be helpful
Thanks in advance!
Me and a friend are traveling to the Pugila region of Italy in early July. We arrive at Bari via ferry from Dubrovnik and are looking to travel by train for the week that we are in the country.
We fly back home from Bari so we have the full week to explore but were looking for any recommendations of places to check out. Ideally some good beaches and decent food would go down a treat (some nightlife wouldn't go a miss but isn't essential) and obviously be reachable easily enough by train (any advice on what type of tickets to get would be amazing!)
We are on a modest budget and would prefer to stay in hostels or cheap B&Bs so that may have some influence on where to go.
I've done some very basic initial research and both the north and south regions seem appealing despite there obvious differences but at this stage we don't have any set plans and will happily take some ad... more »
Can anyone feedback the 3G situation in Italy right now?
Can I make an IP call from my mobile (Skype or Viber for example) anywhere along autostradas and towns?
.. or is this being a bit ambitious :P
