I'm taking a small group (just thirteen people) to stay in San Martino in Campo, a small town about eight miles south of Perugia. We'll be staying at what appears to be the only hotel in town, Alla Posta dei Donini, which has a well regarded restaurant called Pantagruel.
I imagine that we'll eat right there most of the time but I've been looking for alternatives, just in case. Does anyone familiar with the area have ideas?
No one will have a car but I'm sure the hotel can arrange...
I’ve been using the e-gates for years with my British passport, but now people from other countries can use the e-gates. This will help decrease those horrible waiting times at customs at Heathrow. This video explains who can use them and how they work.

Hi, apologies if this is addressed elsewhere but I did not see it in the Driving in Italy thread. I seem to remember that when we went to Tuscany in 2005 we got international drivers licenses - we are renting a car. Is this necessary? Can anyone on here share your experience? I'm American with a US drivers license. thanks! Kathy
Hi, I have been talking to a few agriturismos with pools (we are bringing kids), looking to stay July 31 - Aug 7 (or less if needed). Basically, we have a reservation in Lucca itself but decided we really need room for the kids to roam and pool to play in.
Does anyone here a favorite one I should look at? I have already been deep into Agiturismo.it so I have that covered. Just wanted to know if you personally know of any I should contact. San Miniato area is good too. thanks in advance!
We will be staying at Sofitel LHR T5 for two nights in the second week of October. We will be jet lagged but want to do something on our full day there, nothing too taxing. Thinking of Hampton Court (we have never been) or Kew Gardens (been there many years ago). Which will be easier to get to using public transport?
Would sure appreciate any suggestions - what to see, where to eat, how to get there, etc.
After visiting other places, it's time to get serious about France. We spent three days in Paris as a family about 15 years ago, but we are now looking for a more in-depth trip as a retired couple. The very rough plan would probably call for about three weeks (could add more time for the right reasons) in the spring of 2020 with about 1 week in Paris and 2+ weeks in 'the South'. During that period, we would prefer to base ourselves in only a few locations. We would likely enter through Paris...
Just finished the eighth and final episode of Season 1 of Sally Wainwright's latest work--Gentleman Jack. Based on the 19th century diaries of Anne Lister, known as the "first modern lesbian", the series is fast-moving, literate, beautifully photographed and well acted. Suranne Jones' performance is a tour-de-force. It was first shown on BBC and is available to stream in the US on HBO.

We (2 persons) stayed for 2 weeks in June/July 2019 (we also stayed at another apartment in Camogli in 2017, see our Slow Europe review), and we enjoyed our stay in CamogIi again. Some of the following detail...
