re: Southern California - TigersMaul Bammers
My wife and I are headed to Laguna Beach in June for our 20th anniversary. We were recommended the Deck at Laguna Beach for drinks and the Driftwood Kitchen nearby for dinner. Maybe you can ditch your kids and do the same....

Ristorante Perseus for Bistecca alla Fiorentina. Get ready to have your tastebuds seduced by grass-fed Chianti steak (with a Chianti or Brunello di Montalcino wine to wash it down). [link=(https://www.thegrandwinetour.com/popular-foods-of-italy/best-bistecca-alla-fiorentina-where-to-eat/)]Th...

re: Day trip to Amalfi Coast? - TigersMaul Bammers
You cannot do it in a day using trains. Plan on 3 days. Use most of 1 day to get down there. 2 nights there. 3rd day to get back to Rome with a stop at Pompeii or Herculaneum....

re: Cheapest way to get to ROME? - TigersMaul Bammers
I flew $813 RT from Seattle to Rome (British Airways) this past July (high season) with tix found on FareBoom last November. In low season, you would be able to find fares for less than $1000. Keep using aggregators to look for May airfare. Milan was a good idea too because flights into it on...

re: Starting to book trip to Italy - I need help - TigersMaul Bammers
[quote]I keep hearing that I should shorten Rome to 2, Florence to 3, and Venice to 4. [/quote] I have been to Rome four times, Florence twice, and Venice twice. You cannot do justice to a Rome visit in 2 days. The Vatican Museum takes half a day minimum on its own. So do the Colosseum (which ...

re: Starting to book trip to Italy - I need help - TigersMaul Bammers
I found RT airfare for 5 from Seattle to Rome for a trip last July 4 for $813 per ticket. That was just after the Thanksgiving holiday last year. I'd keep looking for airfare if I were you....

re: Dubrovnik, Hvar Town, and Stari Grad, Croatia - TigersMaul Bammers
Hvar Town and Stari Grad, Hvar (3 nights) We did not like Hvar Town on the island of Hvar as much as Stari Grad. Hvar Town was cracking down on drunk Brits and young folks on holiday by imposing fines for drinking, picnicing, and sleeping in public and wearing bathing suits in the public square....

re: Day Trip to Kotor and Prerast, Montenegro - July 2017 - TigersMaul Bammers
Sorry about the "some guy" moniker I gave you, Mark Makers. You have a lot of great photos and reviews in your post. What was your favorite part of Croatia? I have to say that Vis was our favorite spot. It was not crowded, we got to tour a lot of the island, its beaches, and caves by boat, and ...

re: Day Trip to Kotor and Prerast, Montenegro - July 2017 - TigersMaul Bammers
Cool. Is it better to do the photos journals by the city in Croatia (I did one just for Dubrovnik) or lump all other 5 Croatian cities on one long post? Some guy did or is in process of doing Hvar, Stari Grad, and Split review/photos in one long Croatia journal but I have different photos of those...

Day Trip to Kotor and Prerast, Montenegro - July 2017 - TigersMaul Bammers
We spent about 3 hours in Kotor and an hour near Prerast on a day trip from Dubrovnik. Entire van rental with the driver/guide was $350 Euros. I have the driver's name if anyone needs a tour guide/van ride for day trips to Mostar or Kotor out of Dubrovnik. First photo is of Mariner's Church bui...

Dubrovnik, Hvar Town, and Stari Grad, Croatia - TigersMaul Bammers
July 2017 - Dubrovnik (5 nights) Hot and crowded, but worth it. We arrived here on a flight from Rome. The drive into the city from the airport was spectacular. I highly recommend the Game of Thrones tour, the city walls tour, and a day trip to the island of Lokrum. We also went to the top o...
