    Hello,

    Before I set off I am trying to look into finding accomodations in a few of the cities (England and Copenhagen I will be staying with friends). Any helpful suggestions of decent hostels or cheap hotels in Berlin, Italy (Rome, Florence, Urbino, Venice and perhaps Verona) and Spain (Barcelona, Seville, Bilbao, San Sebastion and Madrid). I would appreciate any tips greatly!!

    Thank you!!

    -C

    Another question is where to go in Spain??? Like the “must sees”. I was thinking Barcelona, Seville, Balboa, San Sebastian and Madrid. I am planning on spending 3 wks there and would love feed back Smile

    A nice looking trip…I might add Granada, Spain and a visit to the Al Hambra Palace. Pisa and Siena are close to Florence and are both worth a peek.

    Pisa and Siena would be separate day trips in my opinion.

    Lots of people catch a train and do Pisa and Lucca in a day.

    The other option would be to catch a bus and do San Gimignano and Siena in a day (I don’t think there is a direct train, and lots of companies do package tours of San Gimignano and Siena which inludes driving along the twisiting roads of the tuscan countryside). Given the choice, I would do Siena/San Gimignano as a day tour.

    Hi! I haven’t been on here in a while,,, but thinking of trying to pass through Pisa on our way to Florence from Rimini. I only have 4 days in Florence but REALLY want to see both Pisa (just to say I have-take a quick photo and move on) and Siena!!!

    Would you recommend Siena/San Gimignano over Pisa if I can only manage to see one of the places???

    ANOTHER QUESTION TO THROW OUT THERE: The last 3 wks of my trip I have no agenda at this point. Since it will be mid-October I was thinking of chasing the sun. Anyone have a suggestion of a place I HAVE to see that is nice this time of year??? I was thinking Sth of France. Since it will be towards the end of my trip was also thinking about finding a work/stay situation like wwoof. Any ideas anyone???
