  • Messina on SicilyArrived to a cloudy morning with some fine rain. Lovely harbour but no sign of Mt Etna or the sunrise. A brief breakfast then back to the cabin to prepare our gear for today's shore excursion. We Posted by greynomadm in 2016-09 UK to Sydney | Oct 10, 2016
  • NaplesArrived in Naples to find two cruise ships already berthed. The Norwegian Epic appeared like a city block parked across the street.

  • Salerno, ItalyWednesday 6th October We had been diverted from Naples because all the berths had been taken by large cruise ships (an omen for what was to come!) and Salerno on the same Amalfi Coast could just take our smaller ship.

  • Civitavecchia, ItalyMonday 3rd October Civitavecchia the commercial port for Rome and we had booked tours for the day but decided we had already done enough over the last few days and cancelled the tours - we had done Rome before and even Posted by Tony and Penny in Tony and Pennys Travels | Oct 3, 2016
  • Livorno, ItalySunday 2nd October We used Livorno only as a means of getting via coach to first Pisa and then Florence both of which would turn out to be full of tourists as you would expect. What is really surprising is the Posted by Tony and Penny in Tony and Pennys Travels | Oct 2, 2016
  • Impruneta – Radda in Chianti – FiesoleLast couple of days of our holiday have approached so fast. The Wallace children are hoping to stay another week here – lovely thought!

  • Other lakes with friendsI suppose officially we hadn't got to Lake Como yet because every time a lake goes in and out a bit on the map it has another name, Lago di Garlate and where we stayed overnight Lago di Olignate. The Posted by cjpolley in Adventure before Dementia | Oct 6, 2016
  • Lamole & Cathy’s Birthday, Shopping (again), LuccaSlow start to the day – evening rain on our way home from the aria’s had dampened down the ground and resulted in early morning mist.

  • CivitavecchiaWoke up this morning to find that we're already tied up on our starboard side. Always amazes me that they can park this massive vessel so quietly. Went out on the deck in the hope of catching a Posted by greynomadm in 2016-09 UK to Sydney | Oct 5, 2016
  • Fourth Sea DayAnother day sailing across the Mediterranean with an interesting sunrise to start the day. Routine breakfast followed by a pair of lectures by our two resident experts.

  • Third Sea DayThe sky is clear but there is a low sea haze as we sail into the Mediterranean Sea reducing visibility. We were within 5 nautical miles of the North African coast but the land was not visible. For Posted by greynomadm in 2016-09 UK to Sydney | Oct 5, 2016
  • Monteriggioni – Sienna – San Gimignano – shoppingIn 2000 the plan had been a walk followed by lunch at Il Pozzo restaurant in Monteriggioni (a walled hilltop Tuscan town) – but the walk took longer than anticipated and we never made it to the lunch.

  • Arriving in Italy After flight connections in Newark New Jersey and Zurich Switzerland we arrived at Melpensa AIrport in Milano Italy! So excited to see Italy for the first time.

  • Dolomites round 2I wasn’t sure that we would have any more visitors this year and then low and behold 3 different friends all wanted to come at the same time. After much deliberation we decided on a group trip to the mountains Posted by trackers in ¡Global Nada! | Oct 1, 2016
  • Rome===Everyone's Rome is different.=== Rome is a big city where the population goes about its business, taking the influx of tourists in stride. When you look at what and how they drive, you are amazed that there are not a huge Posted by tedvanrossum in Ted's Big Adventure | Sep 30, 2016
  • Sorrento and the Amalfi CoastThe countryside in Italy is barren, I think due to the heavy cultivation of the land over the years. The trees most prevalent are umbrella pines and cyprus trees. Pigeons are a real nuisance everywhere - and it Posted by Julie's blog in Julie's Travel Blog | Sep 29, 2016
  • Lake Como and Milan==Thursday, September 22== Trains make mainland Italy delightfully easy to get around. We caught a 10am train from Florence, and arrived at our bed and breakfast in Varenna on Lake Como by 2pm. The train reached a maximum speed of 295km/hour Posted by GenovevaLewis in The Pursuit of Enduring Happiness | Sep 29, 2016
  • CapriI'm running out of adjectives to describe what I'm seeing - Capri, like a lot of what I've seen to date was amazing, surreal, actually better than what I'd imagined it was going to be. I thought it was Posted by Julie's blog in Julie's Travel Blog | Sep 29, 2016
  • Impruneta - FirenzeSunday was the annual parade of the harvest in Impruneta so no decision on what to do – we all decided to attend. It was the 90th year of the festival where 4 local towns vie for the trophy each Posted by EMTHOMSON in JT's 60th Anniversary Tour - The Sequel | Sep 27, 2016
  • Lerici - Villa La Querce, Impruneta`The last journey before our two weeks in the Tuscan villa just out of Impruneta. Away early heading to Pisa, hoping to beat a) the tour buses and b) the heat!

  • Assisi and PompeiiThe list of things I've lost on this holiday is growing - the latest addition is my notebook ... not a major, but disappointing as I had notes in it to transfer into my blog. Changing hotels every Posted by Julie's blog in Julie's Travel Blog | Sep 27, 2016
  • Galleria degli Uffizi===Uffizi Gallery=== If you like sculptures and pre-renaissance to renaissance paintings, this is your palace.
