Fodorites in Italy November!

Greetings fellow fodorites,

Dawn and I will be traveling to Italy 1-13 November and would like to meet up with other fellow fodorites. I already know that Julie, who emailed me recently, will be in Venice the same time and is interested in meeting us, as us as well as Miriam and Oliver from Frankfurt. We plan to be in Venice for 4 nights from the 2nd through the 5th; on the morning of the 6th we’ll head to Tuscay/Umbria for a few days, then head to Rome the afternoon of the 10th and fly home the 13th.

Please let me know if you’ll be around the same time as us. It will be lots of fun getting together either for drinks and/or dinner.

Ciao!

Monica

Monica, I was curious if you had decided how you are getting from Rome to Venice. Have you ever gone from Rome to Napeles, and how did you do it?

We haven’t finalized it yet. Most likely we’ll go by train, but as I mentioned to you before, I’m going to check with the airlines. I know I can get a good discount through Tony’s company, but not sure if I can get it for Dawn.

Tony and I took the train from Rome to Naples back in 1998. It was just over an hour ride and quite easy to do. We had picked up our train tickets the day before at the Termini station. We took an afternoon train, one that had few stops.

Monica, I am really looking forward to having dinner with you and Dawn in Siena.
Lily, are you the "Lily" from Vinings? We will be in Florence on November 7. What fun to meet fellow Fodorites on the road....

Hi Lily,

We probably can meet up in Venice (2,3 or 4th) or Rome 11th or 12th) or if you are interested in meeting us in Siena on the 8th, the date we are planning to meet Judi. Email me directly and we all can firm up some plans!

Yes, Judi, it is Lily from Vinings! It would be very cool to meet in Florence. I hope we can work out the details at the meeting in September. Monica and Christina, I will email you closer to time and we'll try to firm up plans too. I really hope we can get together. Thanks!

What a truly global community! I've frequented the lonely planet board for a while, but I've not seen such comaraderie as here. What a refreshing view!

I've started a company for independent travelers to Italy, providing cultural adventures that get you behind the scenes into the lifestyles of the locals, so if you need any help (non-commercial!) or advice on planning/traveling Italy, feel free to email me.

Hi everyone,

Our plans have changed a little. We'll be spending 5 nights in Venice 2-6th, then on the 7th we'll be in Assisi for 3 nights doing day trips from there (Assisi, Deruta, Orvieto). We plan to be in Siena on the 11th. We're planning to spend 2 nights (10, 11) at a place between San Gimignano and Siena. We'll most likely have dinner in San Gim. on the 10th and spend the whole day, dinner in Siena on the 11th.

Lily, we can still meet in Venice and I can tell you there would be 10 of us for dinner! Please email me so I can correspond with you instead of here once I get the dinner date set up.

Judi, I don't remember the dates you'll be in Siena, so I'm hoping we can still get together.

Anyone else out there that will be in Italy in November?

Hi Monica,
We will be on our way to Cortona on the 11th then on to Spello on the 14th. It appears that our trips are coming from opposite directions! Are your plans firm for San G on the 10th and Siena on the 1lth? If not, we would love to meet you in Siena on the 10th.

Hi Judi, our plans are not set in concrete, but they are the plans we want. We'll be driving from Assisi on the 10th and want to head directly to our hotel and visit the wine towns of Chianti; then have dinner in San Gim, which is very close to our hotel. Then on the 11th, we'll have a full day for Siena. I think if the weather is bad on the 10th, we wouldn't want to visit the vinyards in rainy weather and we might switch those 2 days. But for now, Siena on the 11th. Could you come to San Gim. on the 10th?

Well, that's an idea! San Gim wasn't in our plans but we are flexible! I'll get back to you on that when the time gets closer. Thanks.

Judi, the distance between San Gimignano and Siena are 19 miles.

Check out http://www.shellgeostar.com/ and type in the from/to towns. Great web site for directions/distances.
