Hello!

I decided on a whim to book a short holiday for my 30th Birthday, and I chose Puglia. This is very random, as i've never been to southern Italy before (only ever Venice/ Rome / Florence etc). I fly into Bari, I am torn as I don't know too much about the local area and I don't know whether to stay here, or to choose an area near ish to Bari to use as a base for exploring the area further afield.

I would love an apartment or a hotel with a view, preferably of the ocean, but these…

Hello,

We are hoping to visit Salina for 3 days during our 2 week trip to Sicily. We will have a hire car and I was hoping we could take this across to Selina on the Ferry but I am confused as to whether this service exists? When I look at the Direct Ferries website (https:/…milazzo_salina_ferry.htm) it says it isn't possible to go over with a car but I've read on other threads that it is.

Would anyone be able to advise please?

Many thanks in advance!

HI all,

Off to Sicily in August for 8 days, looking for suggestions as we might either get the overnight ferry from Naples to Palermo or fly to Catania. can you do the east and west coasts or best stick to 1 side?

Mt Etna
Wine & food
Beaches - not too touristy
Aeolian Islands
Cute towns
Alcantara Gorges

Cheers
Andrew

Hi Everyone,

I'm going on a family holiday to Sicily in a few weeks. By the sounds of it, I'm am going to have to plan quite carefully which activities/trips I can make due to my health limitations. I can walk short distances on the flat (talking less than 50m on the flat at best) and will have a lightweight mobility scooter and a hire car for the duration of the holiday. Having spend most of my life as a keen outdoor sportsman and as an adventurous travellers I'm still keen to push my limits…

Hi there,

We (2) will be coming from Luzern, Switz by flixbus into Italy. The bus has 2 destinations, Como or Milan. Then we will leave from MXP (Malpensa airport).

Goals/Thoughts:
Want to spend 3-4 nights in an airbnb with a balcony view of any lake.
As long as there is a bakery and and basic restaurant nearby we're happy.
Don't care much about Milan, see the top 3 sights is good enough for us = 1 or 2 nights.
Want to minimize travel time: 1)From Switz, 2) Lake area, 3) Milan 4) MXP airport.

Hello everyone.

My friend and I will be taking a break in Puglia in September. We have a rough six night itinerary mapped out, and we'd like your opinion - and suggestions for alternatives, additions and possible day trips. We can also add an extra night if there's a compelling incentive to do it, so please suggest anything that might improve our trip with the extra time.

Day 1: Fly into Brindisi and head straight to Lecce
Day 2: Lecce
Day 3: Head from Lecce up to Polignano a Mare
Day 4…

I'm planning to spend 3 or 4 days days hiking around Dolomites at the end of August

I want to know where is the best place to stay as base camp to explore the area ??

I'm planning to rent car from Milan/Venice airport and drive straight to some town (Cortina d'ampezzo/Bolzano bozen/Bressanone or some other)

Any recommendations of hiking trails (something that can be done in a day, so hopefully I can do 1 o 2 per day) and you if you have a link with info about trials or blogs of Dolomites…
