A Farmhouse 10 Minutes From Siena...

An organic farm, the first of its kind in this area (since 1992). We offer a pure and simple environment, warmth and the very best we can do to make your holiday as relaxing and interesting as possible. We don't want to be a hotel in the country, but to give our guests a chance to experience, as far as is still possible, family cozyness and the rhythm of the countryside.


Woman-Friendly B&B In Siena, Tuscany...

Are you thinking about an authentic vacation in Tuscany, away from mass tourism? Poste Regie Bed & Breakfast is a family-run business where you will find Beatrice, Bruno, Gisa and Saverio ready to introduce you to our rural site in the province of Siena. Poste Regie is located in the area of hills called, Montagnola senese --13 kms west of Siena; it is surrounded by an amazing natural environment with olive tree fields, oak woods and sunflowers fields (in July and August). We want our guests to live the experience we live loving and respecting nature.


Casa Howard B&B In Rome...

One of your JourneyWomen guests wrote this about our B&B --' I'd like to recommend Casa Howard (B&B) at 149 Via Sistina, Rome, Italy. This small B&B is located on the second floor of a well secured building, just around the corner from the Piazza Barberini. There are five funkily decorated rooms with ensuite bathrooms. A breakfast of freshly squeezed orange juice, yoghurt, fruit and freshly baked sweet goods is available, served in your room. The location is within walking distance of many attractions, such as the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Many buses and the subway are just a block away on Barberina. We stayed for three days and enjoyed it very much. The staff was helpful in providing tourist information. The price - 200 euros per room per night was less than other hotels in the area.


Trastevere, Rome...

In the city center of Rome is our women-only Guesthouse. Located in a 16th century convent within the International Women Center, our guesthouse is few minutes away from the major sightseeings. Single, double, quadruple rooms and dorms overlook an inner cloister, the Gianicolo hill or the typical Roman red roofs. Free internet.


Bonus tip! Cruise ships docking in Italy...

Here’s an inexpensive way to see Rome from a cruise ship when docking in Civitavecchia. This is information that cruise ship companies will never tell you. The cost of the ground excursion organized by cruise companies (probably only a bus to and from Rome) is usually about $80 while a short walk from the port along a palm lined boardwalk brings you to the Civitavecchia train station. You can purchase a BIRG ticket (daily regional ticket) for nine euro (about $US11) that entitles passengers to a roundtrip to Rome, free access to all buses, metro and return to Civitavecchia in time for your cruise ship's departure. Trains leave every 30 minutes and bring you to Termini Station, in the heart of Rome and well connected to metro and bus lines.

ED. NOTE: If you choose to do this be very sure that you will be able to get back to the ship on time. If you are late and not on one of the ship’s official excursions the captain is not obliged to wait for you. Make sure you have good directions from the port to the train station. Be sure to validate your train ticket on the platform before boarding the train. If you don't you can be fined about 25 euro p.p.
