RHK's heading to Europe

Jump to last reply

On Friday we head to Florida for our trans-atlantic cruise from Ft Lauderdale to Rome on Celebrity Silhouette, sailing on Sunday.

Mostly we contribute on the asia board but from time to time on Europe and others. We are a pair of 69 year old seasoned travellers. Read some of our previous trip reports by clicking on my name.

The cruise is 15 nights and our stateroom is on deck 10 mid-ship very close to the library.
We will make stops in the Bahamas, San Juan, St Maarten and Maderia before arriving on April 29 at Civitavecchia, north of Rome.

I have leased a car for 23 days thru Auto France in NJ. Leasing is fantastic because you receive a brand new car with full insurance (insurance costs are stiff in Italy and required).
It is not cheap, at $1700. but it works for us. When we get to france another couple are joining us so we need decent room. The vehicle is a Peugeot Partner Tepee, a boxy looking car, with a diesel engine.

I have hired Bob's limo service to drive us, privately, from the port to the airport where we will pick up the car--130E. Again, this works best for us, but seems expensive. Shared rides are available but they are not that much cheaper.

My sister lives near Todi in Umbria, so we will head there for a few days. She is a fantastic cook so we will be spoiled with good local foods. After our visit there, we head to an inn/B&B near to Poppi in Tuscany--La Torricella. We have not stayed there before but we have eaten in their excellent restaurant.

This Saturday we are meeting up with a classmate for lunch and two Miami Fodorites for dinner. I will write more from there perhaps.
