Hello all! Looks like a pretty helpful board here, so I thought I would ask a few questions. We (a couple in our 30's) have been traveling around the world for nearly 10 months. Rome will be our first venture into Europe on May 28th. We have approximately 3 weeks to spend in Italy and speak no Italian. We love off the beaten path things and love wine and good food!
1. Arriving from the airport at 9:30pm from Hong Kong can we take the metro at that time then a taxi to our hotel L'antica Locanda Dell'0rso? The hotel has quoted 55 Euro which seems very high, but after a full day traveling is it worth it?
2. We currently are planing 3 nights, 2 full days in Rome. What would be the best use of our time to experience the most? Should we try to do it on our own or a tour? We aren't really tour people, but we may be able to see more?
3. Looking at getting a Roma pass. Where can we purchase this?
4. After Rome we plan to head to Naples. There appears to be three trains. With our luggage is it nessasary to book one with a seat or do we risk standing?
5. Originally we planed to head all the way south, but there is so much we want to see north! Is it worth it in 3 weeks to try and do south and north or should we just focus on North?
Look forward to any advice, tips and responses!
Thanks in advance!
