I've just booked tickets to Rome for Oct 3-12. It'll be my third time to Italy and my husband's first. I've never been south of Florence. My original plan based on speaking to a bunch of people (Italians and people that know Italy well) is Rome 3 days, Naples 2 days, Amalfi Coast 3 days. I know it's not long and I wish I had longer but my mom is babysitting the kids and this is the max we can do.
I don't plan on renting a car; we hoped to get around by trains and buses. I like visiting some…
I live in America and am planning on au pairing for a year in Italy in Rosignano Solvay. My host family and I are running into a couple problems with the visa. So in Italy, there is no such thing as an "au pair visa" as there is in other countries, so we were trying to figure out other ways to stay the whole time. The way we are thinking will work the best is that I apply for a student visa. Now, this is the catch, in order to qualify for a student visa you have to take 20 hours of a…
We plan a family trip of one week to Rome in the middle of july (Yes ; it was a bad descision to choose this ime of the year for a trip in Rome... but we will do our best to have a good time...)
We plan to visit all the classic sites ; like Colosseum; Forum; etc - depends by the patience of our kids; the heat and the crowd. We also plan to visit some sites farther away; like Tivoli gardens; orvieto; and more.
My question is which sites to choose for visit at our first days - friday…

I am concern about weather conditions might effect driving considering not…
I am planning to take the bus from Viterbo to Tarquinia on Saturday. I have a small suitcase. How do I pay the surcharge for luggage - should I just buy another ticket of the same fare class? I most likely will take the bus after the ticket office closes so don't think anyone will be there for assistance.
The most beautiful beaches in Western Sicily
Trapani, Marsala, Mazara del Vallo
To meet western Sicily, for the first time, traveling, arriving from other Italian regions or from Europe, is a unique experience that one has to do in life.
It is not just a pleasure trip, a beach holiday, but a real experience, the real immersion in a world, in a totally Mediterranean atmosphere that still today brings together the Arab culture and the Western culture in a special mix sometimes unrepeatable. We…
Hello Everyone, My partner and I are flying into Rome (FCO) and then heading straight to Florence. We were intending to connect with an Alitalia flight but a lot of traveller suggestions seem to favour commuting by train from FCO. Any advice would be most welcome. Thank you.
Hello! I will be in Rome with my wife in May on Corpus Christi this year (Thursday, May 31). What will be a program of this year event? Does it mass at St John Lateran and then there is a procession to Santa Maria Maggiore? Do you need to get there early to be able to see the procession? Are there any really good place to see the procession? Does it worth visit for really short trip to Rome?
I'm planning to cycle from the Austrian/Tyrolean border (Reschenpass) to Florence. Has anyone any suggestions, in particular where I can find cycling maps of Italy (preferably online, but hardcopy would also be fine). Thanks for your help!
