Depending how young and/or fit you are the Velib bike system Is great. We bike all around Paris every year and we love the freedom and flexibility. Like walking but faster and you can go further and can wander off the beaten track a little (ie take the back streets, divert to that lovely cemetery etc). over 7 years ago
Just wondering if anyone out there has done Italy in a hired motor home or even on Vespas staying in caravan/ camp grounds.
Apologies, i don't approve of "doing" places, but i have travelled all over Europe in a Motor home or camping car as they are called there, including 3 months in Italy. It is an incredibly popular way to get about for the locals. The campgrounds are cheap and plentiful. My favourite is Michelangelo in Florence. We also slept on mountain hillsides, forest tracks, etc, and woke to fabulous views and all for free. There are some good books on all this online. Re Vespas, many campgrounds have cabins attached, very cheap and quite comfy. It is also a great way to meet Europeans. Diesel is almost always cheaper than petrol across Europe and is more fuel efficient. Camper vans can be easily hired in Europe. Get a GPS. Get off the motorways and explore. Best of luck, bp over 7 years ago
Look at Vaduz castle (tho you can't visit it) then go to Salzburg or Lucerne or Bavaria or Como or ... sorry, shouldn't be mean. The farmhouse museum in Schellenberg was quite interesting. Princes Way hike is great, so my girlfriend said. And the Sareis chairlift. I rate it all as underwhelming. Cheers, bp over 7 years ago
