  • Nice apartment near Vatican

    "We stayed at this property over Christmas 2014 and have mostly positive feedback. The booking process was easy and Francesca was responsive to any questions we had, which was great! A couple of weeks before we were to travel, I had inquired about something and received a response from Krystel, who identified herself as an associate of Francesca's, so I didn't think anything of it. Krystel met us near the train station to walk us to the apartment, which we appreciated very much. On our way, I was surprised to hear that Francesca no longer owns the property, Krystel said she works for the new owner, but that Francesca was still involved because of when we booked. It made me a little uneasy because we were unaware of that, but Krystel assured me that everything was fine and the agreement was the same, (which it was). Krystel said that the owner's grandson was getting the apartment ready but she was needed to help with the translating. We arrived at the apartment (10 minute walk from the metro). The grandson gave us a tour and answered some questions. We were given a piece of paper with some information on it, but more info in writing would have definitely been helpful - basic directions to things, etc. The apartment was nicely appointed and there was even a small Christmas tree, which was very nice and made it feel homey. The bathroom that has the washer and dryer in it and the hydrotub does not have a shower curtain, so I'm not sure why it's advertised as being a shower. The dryer was very infefficient, (even though we followed the instructions and emptied the water basin underneath, and cleaned the lint trap with each load) - in fact, we had better luck hang drying items! Like another person mentioned, there was a slight sewer like smell in that same bathroom, and the toilet did not always flush. We had a couple of issues in that the power went out twice - first time because they forgot to mention we shouldn't use more than a couple of electronic devices at the same time which was easily remedied by flipping the switch, and again on Christmas Day (whole building) and we had a hard time reaching Krystel to ask for flashlight (we had to buy) and we had to buy a wine opener after searching the entire kitchen and not finding one. Also, some silverware was dirty in the drawer, which wasn't pleasant. Baccanale 59 was a WONDERFUL restaurant, and right down the block. Great location. Nice apartment, just hope they fix a few things!"

Germany Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Germany Vacation Rentals

Most visitors to Germany travel in the warmer summer months that run from May through September. The peak travel season is typically during June and July. In general, summer days are long with the sun only setting after eight at night. This allows plenty of time for sightseeing and other activities. In the winter, the temperatures range from mild to freezing depending on where you are in Germany. The northern and eastern parts frequently get heavy snowfall during December and January. In the south and more mountainous regions, the snow and scenic beauty attract many visitors in the wintertime.

Attractions and Activities at Germany Lodging

Germany has a rich and diverse history. In almost every town or city, there are buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, beautiful churches or cathedrals, and local legends that have become part of the local traditions. There are many museums in Germany catering to a wide range of interests. Far from boring showcase-type exhibits, modern museums include video, sound and actual artifacts to bring history to life. While traditions remain strong, Germany is a modern nation and this is reflected in the high-tech modern style of living in the cities. Restaurants and bars range from traditional eateries to quirky and sometimes bizarre-themed venues. Most people visit Germany to take in the ancient castles, museums and churches. In the summertime, the best way to explore is on foot. Enjoy a cup of coffee at a street side café and browse through the shops in between your visits to museums.

Germany Travel Tips

Getting around Germany is easy but before you set out, make sure you have a good guidebook with you. In this way, you can plan some of your travel routes and make sure you get to the sights that you really want to see. If you plan to travel by train or are spending some time in one particular city, look into purchasing a travel pass. This is often far more affordable than single route tickets. Germany is relatively safe but be aware of walking around alone at night. Like most major cities, there is always a risk of becoming a target for crime.

Getting to and Around Germany

Germany takes up a large part of Central Europe and is easily accessible by air, land and sea. The harbor at Hamburg is one of the largest and busiest in the world. While it is mostly cargo that is transported, several worldwide cruise liners also dock at Hamburg. If you already reside or are traveling in Europe, one of the best ways to get around is by train. There is an extensive rail network in Germany that links it up with the rest of Europe. High-speed intercity trains are a convenient way of traveling longer distances. Smaller towns and villages can be reached on standard trains. Some of the rail routes, such as the one from Cologne and Dusseldorf to Frankfurt, follow the scenic route along the Rhine River. This is one of the best ways to see the countryside.

There is also an extensive road network; however, you do need to be confident in your driving ability. The high-speed autobahns and inner city congestion can be somewhat intimidating if you are not used to it. Germany has several efficient international airports. The busiest is Frankfurt International Airport. This is mostly due to its central location within Germany and Europe. Other international airports include Berlin Airport and Munich Airport. From these airports, you can get domestic connections on to other cities such as Dusseldorf, Bonn, Hamburg, and Dresden.
