Discover Sicily and Malta On Line (Video + Stills)

My film “Don Corleone’s Island” presents highlights of Sicily (Italy) and Malta, starring a “Godfather” movie shrine, the Mt Etna volcano, Greek Temple of Concord, fantastic Roman mosaics, a Norman mountain top castle, vivid Byzantine mosaics in a Catholic cathedral; then Malta’s landscape of 16th Century walls and forts, the scenic former Arab fortress of Mdina, and a tour of Malta’s Grand Harbor.

Study Abroad in Italy

Can anyone give me advice or feedback about studying in Italy?

9 person, 13 night euro trip - everything planned...except transport!

So, we decided to ditch our travel agent because she was NO help. She just wanted to put us on a cruise ship. Instead, we took up the task and booked 4 nights in Munich, 5 nights in Florence and 4 nights in Rome for 9 people. So, everything is done except transportation.

It would be a simple matter of buying point to point rail tickets to our destinations, except that our group wants to do different things while we are in our locations.

Florence - Venice - Florence

I want to travel from florence to venice for 1 day. just make a day trip starting early in the morning and then come back to florence late at night. anyone know the best way to do this? i dont want to waste one of my eurail days on this since ill need it more for when i travel from country 2 country.
I dont necessarily need to take a train. I heard the buses are pretty good too and since its not a long ride and supposed to be cheaper, i figure we could just do that. anyone know a good site to purchase those tickets? do i really need reservations for it?

First trip abroad, suggestions?

My Fiancé and I will be making out first trip over seas next march for our Honeymoon. We originally planned a backpacking trip begging in Rome, and ending in Venice. No we are considering something a little more jam packed. We have 13 days to travel in Europe and are planning to buy a euorail global pass youth that will allow us to travel for 15 days.

Corsica VS Amalfi Coast

I’m planning an 18 day trip to Europe. My boyfriend and I plan on getting an unlimited use rail pass. We would like to get a taste of the big cities but want to add an incredible beach in there as well. We’re having a tough time deciding whether it’s worth the trouble to make the trip to Corsica before we go to Rome or the extra few hundred miles out of our way after Rome. We’d like to ideally stay 2-3 days in this whichever we choose, but which would be the better choice? Most cost efficient? Easiest to get there? Better sights?

The College Eurotrip I never took... until now
Travelogue Entry in Cannes, France

Ten days in London and France versus visting several countries?

Hi! My boyfriend and I are headed to Europe this summer for a wedding in Tours (apparently 2h from Paris). Neither of us has been before, so I feel a little lost trying to plan things. We’ll be gone for about 10 days (haven’t booked flights yet). We’ll probably fly into London, where our friend lives, then go to Tours for Fri-Sun. I’m looking for advice on spending time exporing France (I’d like to see Paris, but other than that I don’t really know much about the other places) versus trying to take in other countries. I’d love to see Venice and/or Rome.


I live in Portland, Oregon and I am planning a trip to Bosnia then Italy, unfortunately for the last week of June through the 2nd week in July, the most expensive time to travel. I love the hunt for great deals on airfare and good places to stay and all of that but I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. Hopefully this question makes sense to someone.

I know that it is relatively inexpensive to fly within Europe so I’ve been looking at a wide variety of cities. I can find some decent prices to the east coast and I know leaving from there may save me some money.
