Sorrento - Stayed at Domus Porto Salvo Hotel which is an abbey with several monks still living on the premises. It is a great location for day trips around the Naples/Amalfi area. Visited Pompeii, Ercolan, Positano, Amalfi, Isle of Capri. The room was comfortable and spotless. Great staff (english speaking and helpful) and free computer use 24/7. Very nice breakfast included. It is the perfect spot overlooking the Bay. I could easily have been happy there for a 2 week stay with day trips around the Campania area. I didn't have time to see every city I had hoped to unfortunately. The public transportation was easy and inexpensive. It is a good spot for the physically challenged. The hotel has been adapted although I would let them know in advance.
I've done a lot of travelling around North and Central Italy. I've also been down the Amalfi Coast to Pompeii and Naples.
I've used Italy as a base to travel into Switzerland, France and Slovenia. I'm also currently learning Italian in case anyone needs some basics...(I'm not v good though!)
It's amazing how much diversity there is in this small country. Having been living here for 6 years, I still have much to discover, but I've seen and experienced a lot of Bella Italia, and I can recommend great places not mentioned in any or most guide books - also other info/advice re accommodation (mostly budget) and other travel tips.
i can give information about place near where i live, place where i travel and information about restaurant!
I can recommend specific lodging options in Rome, Florence and Venice as well as transportation recommendations. I spent one week in Rome, one week in Venice, and three weeks in Florence - so my best advice on local info will be for Florence.
Traveled to Italy more than 20 times in my young life. Extensive knowledge about Italian cuisine, coffee, history and cultural history.
Travelled through Italy a couple of times.

Living in Salento, I got to love its nature, people, traditions and the way of life.

Hello my name is Steve Mc Evoy and I live in London.For the last three years I have visited the Aeolian Islands,off Sicily,and found it a fascinating archapelgo of seven islands,with a lovely pace of life especially in the low season(Oct to May).There are lovely beaches walks and mountain treks to be explored.Each island has a different aura and they are named Vulcano,Lipari, Salina,Panerea,Stromboli,Alicudi and Filicudi.I have visited the first five and hopefully will visit the last two in 2006.If anyone requires information on these islands please contact me.
On the other hand I would like some details on the crossing of the border in Cyprus as the Karpas Peninsula on the north side appeals greatly to me.Is it easy to cross or is there a three hour interrogation before entry is permitted.
Thanks for any help forthcoming.
Stephen Mc Evoy.
