  • A room with a view!

    "Our trip to Florence for 9 days at the end of November couldn't have been more perfect, in large part due to the wonderful apartment we stayed in. Torella was an ideal location, a minute from the Ponte Vecchio, around the corner from the Pitti Palace and across the Arno from the Uffizi. The apartment itself was comfortable and cozy, with breathtaking views from the bedroom at all hours. One of the unexpected bonuses was that it was extremely quiet; no sound from other apartments, neighbors or even the street. We enjoyed the terrace and found the living room very relaxing. Both our greeter and the doorman were extremely helpful, which was especially important considering our luggage was lost on the trip there. They were instrumental in our obtaining it without further problems. We loved being close to the main attractions, but also the quiet small streets and piazzas in this region, and especially the artisans of the Santo Spirito neighborhood. Restaurants within walking distance were all superb, and we found the recommendations in the apartment very helpful. We also made daily trips to the grocery store down the street, perfect for supplies for breakfast or snacks. We were able to do what we had hoped this vacation could do: relax and live as the locals might, walking everywhere, enjoying the beauty and vibrancy of this beautiful Italian city. We can't wait to return."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "My wife, sister and I had a wonderful stay in Modica. Rosie did a great job beforehand providing us information on the town and surroundings, as well as the arrangement of her home. We were greeted by her representative, Giorgio, who met us on the edge of town and guided us to the property. Rosie's house is a gem. I would call it a town home as it is nestled on a side street, surrounded by other similar properties. Rosie's house shares common sidewalls with neighbors, but there is no one above or below. The street was very quite, but close (a block or so) from the hustle and bustle of Monica. Rosie has done a terrific job of modernizing and remodeling the house which is well equipped with furnishings and all the household utensils one could want. We loved Monica, the surroundings and Rosie's place and would return if the opportunity presents itself."

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.
