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?

Hi Everyone,

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!

Hello, I am looking for help organizing a visit to the Amalfi Coast and Path of Gods at the end of July. We are a family of 4 (with 2 teens), and this is our first time in Italy. We are planning on going from Naples to stay for 3 days in Vico Equence to visit the Coast, and then going to Rome. We thought of Vico Equence as a base because it seemed more convenient to get to and from, without being as touristy or expensive as Sorrento. Could anyone suggest how to proceed for such a visit or…

I'm heading over to Finland on June 26th for a artist residency,

but i just found the festival Terraforma: http://www.terraformafestival.com/
Which I'm really drawn to.
I'm traveling solo, and have done in the past as well however i don't think i would feel ok about attending a camping festival solo.. Seeing as the camping environment seems to inspire people to think its ok to enter peoples tents uninvited.
I'm not sure of the exact nature of this festival although my previous festival experience…

Hello, we're a family of 3, ages 68, 52, and 14! We'll be spending the month of June in Italy. We are "slow" travelers, not liking to rush from one town to another. That is, we'd rather see two towns slowly than race through 8 of them.

First question is small: we have Bernina Express tickets to Tirano, arriving 1 pm, then we're meeting our Italian friend in Torino the next day. I don't hear great things about Tirano OR Milan, but we need to spend a night in one of them, OR in another town along…

Hello, we are visiting Italy in around mid June. We will be in Venice towards the end of our trip but have 2 1/2 days free before we head back to Milan to fly out. If weather permits, we would like to stay and hike the dolomites. I have a few questions:
1) What is the most efficient way to get from Venice to the Dolomites? I want to avoid renting a car because I am not sure of how difficult it is to drive the roads up the mountain.
2) There is much to see and we've seen some beautiful scenery. If…

Howdy, I'd love some help trying to find some hiking near Castellina in Chianti. I've googled and googled, but I can't find much other than the Via Francigena which doesn't interest us too much. We are a small group of women from Colorado in our 40s and 50s traveling to celebrate my friend's retirement from teaching. We will have a car, can hike for miles, and don't need much other than lovely scenery and no crowds. An added bonus would be to make a pit stop at a family run vineyard for wine…
