    Is there a return ferry from Hydra Is. to Pieria?

    I think you mean Piraeus? If so then yes there daily ferries from various companies such as Euroseas, Hellenic Seaways. You can choose between car ferries or catamarans and they take about 3 or 1.5 hours respectively. almost 9 years ago

    5 things I should know before I go (and isn't in guidebooks!)

    Versailles is definitely worth the trip. There is a LOT of walking though. Get the headphones too then you can hear all about the things you are seeing. Do not miss the big painting room with all the big moments in the creation of France. To experience something different in Paris itself. Just get away from the main tourist attractions and find a small coffee place. I would recommend finding someone on Couchsurfing.com just to meet someone who speaks your language and is willing to guide you around a bit. almost 10 years ago

    Can Aussie driver license holder drive in USA without getting an international license?

    I think it depends on which state you are talking about but RAC* advise that you should get an IDP anyway. International Licenses are just translation documents. In Tasmania they only cost $AU30 or so. All they do is allow a police officer to identify that it is a valid drivers license on the spot instead of checking with some authority over the phone or back at the police station. Like I said.. pay the 30 bucks and you reduce your potential stress a lot. http://www.racv.com.au/wps/wcm/connect/Internet/Primary/travel/driving+overseas/driving+in+the+united+states over 9 years ago

    Where can I park for free in Santiago, Spain?

    When I went to Santiago I stayed in a hotel called Miradoiro de Belvis http://www.booking.com/hotel/es/miradoiro-de-belvis.html It had complementary parking which was very handy. Also the cost of the place was quite cheap considering it was in the middle of old town it was only €45 total a night for a double room. over 9 years ago

    can I catch a plane from SPLIT to TRIESTE on Saturday 26 June in the afternoon? or even to VENICE ? Is it a long way in the train ? Thank yo

    Split to Trieste is a fairly long way on the train. 15 hours or more I think. The trains have to go via Zagreb. It would be faster to go by bus (10 hours) You can catch a ferry to Ancona, Italy from Split (11 hours and only overnight) and then catch a train north (6 hours more) Or another option is catch a flight from Split to Zurich with Croatian Airlines and then from Zurich to Venice with Swiss Air (6 hours) http://www.skyscanner.net/flights/spu/veni/100626/airfares-from-split-to-venice-in-june-2010.html Looks like 250£ at the moment but it is by far the fastest of the options For flights though you are booking quite close so don't expect it to be cheap. Good luck, Niko over 9 years ago

    I'm in Rome for only 3 days in July. What's are my must do's?

    There is way too much to see in 3 days... and in July it will be full of tourists. If you are there on a Sunday go to the flea market in Trastavere. This is also a great area to relax and have a coffee. Isola Tiberina is also a nice cool island to get away from the sweaty and smelly main streets. Standard tourist things (probably in order of interest): Colosseum Pantheon Trevi Fountain - plenty of great fountains in Rome probably the best known Palatine Hill Capitol Hill I suppose the Vatican city is a must if you like that sort of thing. For me it was a bit a collection of millions of dollars worth of stuff by the biggest 'philanthropic' organisation in the world... that you have to pay to see... over 10 years ago
