Who wouldn't want to go to Italy?

I have a family wedding in Italy coming up (it's there at the whim of the couple getting married, my family has no particular connection to Italy), and am at a loss for what to do aside from going to the wedding. Experienced travelers and people who live in or love visiting Italy, please help me plan a trip I can look forward to! [more inside]

Venice travelcards - 3 days or 72 hours?

Venice transportation options have me absolutely confused. The ACTV fares page and most tourist sites say the travelcards / time limited tickets are valid for 1, 2 or 3 days. The same ACTV's vaporetto page says 24, 48 or 72 hours. Can anyone who used them confirm which of those is correct? [more inside]

Late night - Stadio Euganeo to Venice

Probably a long shot, but does anyone know the best way to get from Stadio Euganeo outside Padua to Venice after a concert? Looks like the last trains from Padua's central station head to Venice early in the 11pm hour, so that may not be the best play. Anything run later? Is this going to be a taxi/Uber situation?

When in Rome play like the Romans.

My friend is an experienced guitar (and piano) player who had a great experience once when he visited São Paulo. When he was there he found a professional piano player to give him a couple of private lessons in bossa nove. (He started on piano, and then brought his guitar to another lesson.) He learned a lot! Now he’s going to Rome with his guitar. [more inside]

When in Rome, stay where MeFites have stayed!

Travelling to Rome at the end of January and looking for accommodation recommendations. I'm looking for something that's away from the most touristic areas, but still within a 5-10 minute walk of public transportation. Open to hotels, guest houses, or apartment rentals. I welcome your recommendations of places you've stayed in the last 2-3 years.
