Lipari's best accomodation !
This place has a fantastic view of the sea in Canneto, Lipari. Newly built (at time of writing 2007) these are apartments fully self contained. They also offer breakfast on site as well as dinner at their restaurant in the town.
It is within easy walking distance of the town centre and bus stop. The sunrises here are worth waking up for !
Well worth staying here. Great views! Owners Mirko and Giovanni are very friendly and helpful.

En France go to wine country...
En France go to wine country and stay in an old converted farm house. You are guaranteed a warm feel, interesting architechture and absolutely fabulous cuisine. In Deutchland visit a Gasthaus, especially in winter it will welcome you from the cold, warm you with the Eifel Wasser and ensure snug down blankets to lull you to sleep. In Italia, take time to talk to the inkeeper and learn about his family, ask him to prepare his favorite dish and drink heartily of the vino dela casa. In Spain you are on your own. In Belgium, be sure to ask for a late check out and stay away from the local beer after Midnight, time your visit to learn about the town history through local presentations. When in Switzerland rent a car to see the true beauty but if you stop have your travellers cheques handy. In Austria, go for the first snow fall and Schnitzle, drive into any small town and enjoy the wonderful hospitallity at a house that advertises Zimmer for rent. In Holland, the people are tall and the accomidations good, forget sleeping and get out on the town! Too many to continue, my best advise is find a way to set up residence in one spot, then travel extensively to everywhere else. When that gets old, rediscover your wonderful new hometown!
Average is $100 US, but many cheaper with great memories and several more expensive but forgetable
Munich, Germany - Residence Alter Hof
This had been the residence of the Wittelsbacher, the Bavarian royal family since 1253. Kaiser Ludwig of Bavaria had the official seat there between 1328-1347. The Late-Gothic bay window is also known as 'Affenturm' (monkey tower).
Europe...my continent of Residence
The total Population of Europe is about 375 million. In the Netherlands where i live the population density is 419 per square kilometers making it the most populated country in Europe.
If you compare Europe with the United States, there's a big difference in how people feel about their union.
In the US people of all states feel American, in Europe people still feel much more connected to their country then the do feel a European.

Low season accomodations on Aeolian Islands?
I'm traveling to Sicily and the Aeolian Islands in two weeks, and have been having trouble finding accommodations on Lipari and Stromboli - most places I've found are CLOSED! Would anyone possibly have any tips or recommendations for lodging?
Re: Low season accomodations on Aeolian Islands?
usually in these touristic places accommodations opens from april to september. But there are also hotels and residence working all year long ( in lipari and stromboli there are more than 100 hotels, b&b and villas! ) You can find something at www.siciliaviaggi.com clicking on "eolie". This year weather is still nice so i think that must be some accommodations open.
Enjoy your trip!
Catania airport early Sunday morning?
Two of us will be staying in Taormina in September. We will need to catch the 7:40 am Sunday morning flight to Paris from Catania airport. What time should we try to arrive at the airport?
It looks like the first bus from Taormina to the airport (http://www.interbus.it/interbushtm/) does not arrive until 8:05, so we can't take that bus. Is there a cheaper option than a private shuttle (I was quoted 68 euros)?
Is it worth spending our last night in Catania instead and catching a taxi or the Alibus from there? Any recommendations on where to stay?
RE: Catania airport early Sunday morning?
I would stay in Catania since the flight is so early. You should be at the airport at least one hour ahead of the flight if you are checking luggage.
An excellent place to stay in Catania is the Residence La Vetreria at Via Grimaldi 8.
Would obtaining a schenegen visa allow me to enter Ireland?
RE: Visiting Ireland
No, because like the UK, Ireland is not a Schengen member. Therefore if you intend to visit Ireland you need to check whether your nationality (which is not indicated in your profile so I can't help you) requires a visa under Irish, not Schengen rules. You can google for this information but it might be safer to contact the Irish Embassy in your country of residence.
