If only 2 , which 2 And - I see they are available them in in metal or a "canvas type material" - what's the difference; are they both acceptable Any help would be appreciated....Thanks in advance

An Italian friend forwarded this to me. Does this mean that they want you to travel for free on ATAF buses with a smartphone to help them with the survey?Sounds like a sweet deal to me. http://www.in-time-project.eu/en/test_users/test_users_italiano.htmIzzy

A couple of friends are planning a holiday in Italy next year, bringing an old Ducati from Singapore to show it where it was made. They are planning to travel for three months and then will ship the bike to their new home in Canada. Has anyone any idea about on road stuff like registration, customs etc. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, Can anyone advise me on the procedures to sell a used car here? What are the documents that are needed? I needed to produce the Carta di Identita when I purchase a 2nd hand car. Now that I am selling, do I need to do likewise? Trying to figure out when to sell and when to release my documents (Permesso di Soggiorno & Carta di Identita), I was told that I needed to surrender the documents back to the Comune before leaving.Any idea on whether a transaction can be done immediately? Recalled that buying took some waiting.Any advise will be appreciated!Thank you.Kelrecis

Can anyone recommend a bike repair shop in Florence please? The one I went to last time charged me a fortune and I felt a bit ripped off. Thanks, Charlie

We recently purchased a second home near Bagni di Lucca and would like to buy a Vespa and/or a small car. We intend to spend around 6 months in Tuscany and both hold full UK car driving licenses. Are we able to purchase and if so, what documents will we need and are their any restrictions as to the cc of a scooter?

Due to the snow and bad weather conditions, the Mayor of Florence has suspeded the ZTL in the city centre to permit movement of its residents and visitors. From 13:40 today it is possible to pass through the centre without the required ZTL pass. http://press.comune.fi.it/hcm/hcm54185-1_Maltempo,+il+sindaco+Renzi+sospende+la+ztl.html
