On trips to Dublin you always need plans for when it rains. Apart from some places already mentioned a must- do is the National Museum of Ireland. Others include EPIC the Irish emigration museum, The Little Museum of Dublin, Dublinia. if you get nice weather then take a... See More

London: Need tips on local transportation

The cheapest way to get to Victoria Station​ to Gatwick​ is to go with Easybus. You can then get a bus from Victoria to your hostel.    If travelling by train, don't take the Gatwick Express. It will cost you an arm and a... See More

Cinque Terre: Should I go in January?

Northern Italy​can be surprisingly wet and cold in winter so I wouldn't have big expectations. You could go to Cinque Terre​ and have lovely sunny days or you could have miserable cold wet days. It's a bit of a lottery. My... See More

Italy: Siena to Cinque Terre

Jane I think you have the balance wrong. If you were to stay anywhere for 6 nights then it should be Rome. Even then you will only be able to scratch the surface of one of the world's great cities. 6 nights in Siena is way too long IMHO. One or two nights is plenty.... See More

Matera: Best restaurants with outdoor dining in Matera, Italy?

Looking for recommendations for outdoor dining in Matera. We are foodies so price is not as important as food quality. We are staying up near the cathedral (duomo) so don't want to have to trek too far downhill as my wife's knees are not great. As we're there... See More
