Europe: Three weeks in UK, based out of London

Amsterdam​: if you intend to visit Anne Frank House​ (and it’s not to be missed) you must book online ahead of time, do it ASAP. Tickets are timed and limited in number, and if you fail to book you will be in an extremely long... See More

Italy: Recommendations for a 5 days trip to Lake Maggiore,Piedmont & Bergamo

I think that sounds like a busy schedule! It’s a few years since I last visited Lake Maggiore​, but you can certainly spend a full day visiting the Borromeo Islands, and another full day on the Lake Maggiore Express, which is basically a round trip... See More

Venice: Driving from Venice to Sorrento

Are you planning to hire a car? Because if you are, I wouldn’t bother, I’d travel by train instead. Italian rail services are well organised and sensibly priced. The previous responder has comprehensively explained the complications involved with driving in towns in... See More

London: Nell Gwynn Hotel Apartments - clean?

I’m also from the U.K., and I haven’t stayed in this particular place either, but I agree with the points Mary S has made. London is a very expensive city, and I also always choose my accommodation by checking reviews. I also agree that a score of less than... See More

Italy: Trains and rental cars

Definitely don't drive in Florence​​! Also, a day trip to Florence will probably leave you feeling you've missed out; there's so much to see, it's an amazing city. You'll barely scratch the surface in a day. You might consider spending... See More

Burano: What's the most colorful place you've ever been?

Burano​ island in the Venice​ lagoon. All the little houses are painted in bright colours. It’s a beautiful place for a trip from Venice! See More

Rome: Itinerary Ideas for 15 days in Italy

Also: not sure about your accommodation tastes - we prefer Small/personally run places. I can recommend places we’ve stayed at in all three cities.   In Florence​: B & B Casa Rovai​. Find on but booking direct might... See More

Rome: Itinerary Ideas for 15 days in Italy

I would reiterate what others responders have said: don’t even think of driving. Italian trains are simplicity itself to negotiate, and are usually very efficient. Tickets for local trains can be easily purchased at the stations from machines, and you can select English... See More

Rome: Best district

We really enjoyed staying in Coppedè​ This area is located between two large parks, Villa Borghese​ and villa ada​, and has some amazing and very unusual architecture - we saw nothing like it anywhere else in Rome​.... See More
