Travelling to italy

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone,

 

I am from Portugal and I am planning a trip to Italy.

 

Since I have never been to Italy, I'd like you to help me in this.

 

I'd like to go on the 3rd September and return on the 10th.

 

We were thinking about spending 3 nights in Rome, 2 in Florence and 2 in Venice.

 

Is this enough to see the most interesting places in these cities?

 

how far (minutes and accessibility) is this hotel (http://hotelauroragarden.net/map.php) from the center of Rome?

 

we are thinking about going from rome to florence and florence to venice by train... can anyone please direct me to the italy train service? I have found one (http://www.trenitalia.com/) but I am not sure if this is the most appropriate.

 

thanks in advance for all the help

hi!

the nights you wrote are "just enough" to visit the most important places in those cities, that means you'll have to hurry from a place to another and you won't have much time to rest but if you only got 1 week that's the right way of splitting the days/nights in those 3 cities, however you won't have much time to geocache :)

I can't speak for the hotel in Rome because I'm from Bologna and I don't know how easy is to reach Rome's center from there.

The website www.trenitalia.com is the right and official one and moving by train is definitely the right choice but keep in mind that trenitalia's trains are often (if not always) delaied so keep that in mind if you need to catch a flight or a coincidence.

 

if you need anything else, don't hesitate to contact me!

 

good luck and have fun in Italy!

Hi,

I live in Rome, but just from the map you can tell that your hotel is quite far from the city center, so expect a long commute, I'd say at least one hour, more if you're moving at rush hour (7:30 - 10 AM, 4 - 8 PM).

There are two nice parks nearby (Aguzzano and Marcigliana) where I'd like to hide a cache sometime, but they're just too far... sorry!

 

Anyway, feel free to contact me for any kind of assistance while you're in Rome: I've found all the caches in my city, so might be able to give you some hint.
