New high-speed trains coming to Italy

New high-speed trains coming to Italy

A heads-up for train travelers: In summer 2011, a private high-speed railway in Italy is scheduled to make its debut, traveling between Salerno and Turin via Naples, Rome, Florence, Bologna, Milan and Venice.

Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori, or NTV, the brainchild of Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, will use the same recently upgraded tracks as the fast trains operated by state-owned Trenitalia. But NTVs trains will be sleek, new Alstom AGVs, made by the same company that gave France the TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse), capable of traveling 357 miles per hour.

Even so, the new train service, dubbed Italo, will have to abide by the Italian railway speed limit of 186 miles per hours, meaning that travel times won‘t be vastly different from those of Trenitalia: Rome-Milan in under three hours, Milan-Turin in 50 minutes, Bologna-Florence in 37 minutes and Rome-Naples in an hour.


What will set NTV apart from Trenitalia are style and service. Plush coach interiors are being designed by Italian automobile designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. There will also be satellite access, Wi-Fi, a cinema car, chef-made cuisine, Internet ticketing and a broader range of prices and classes than Trenitalia offers.

The project, initiated prior to Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s administration, is one of Italys first privately owned and operated mass-transportation ventures.

All aboard!

Europe travel update: Airlines advice to fliers; more delays expected from ash plume

Europe travel update: Airlines advice to fliers; more delays expected from ash plume

Shifting clouds of volcanic ash shut airports and disrupted flights in Spain, Portugal and Italy this weekend, but all airports were open Monday after the concentration of ash dissipated overnight, according to updates from the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation.

Travelers should remain on alert and check frequently with their travel agents and airlines because an ash cloud from the Icelandic volcano, lingering over the North Atlantic, may cause delays in transatlantic flights that must be rerouted to avoid the cloud, the agency said.

“There is an area of ash cloud in the middle of the North Atlantic, which is impacting transatlantic flights,” the statement said. “While most of these flights are operating, many are having to make significant reroutings to avoid the area of ash cloud coverage, resulting in delays.” The agency, known as Eurocontrol, said it expects about 28,500 flights to operate Monday over Europe – about 500 fewer than normal. Eruptions from the volcano last month forced a five-day suspension of air traffic over Europe.

On Sunday, Italy’s airports in Pisa, Milan and Florence were shut, as well as airports in Portugal and Spain. Airlines are struggling to keep fliers updated with the latest information through postings on websites, Twitter and text messages and e-mails.

Below is what some airlines are advising passengers to do if their flights have been affected by the volcano; if you booked your flight through a travel agent, contact him or her to rebook or file for a refund.

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

If your idea of having the perfect getaway is touring the best spas all over Europe, youre not alone. But how can you visit all of them with so little time? Europe is practically crawling with the excellent spas these days. But because we want you to have the most relaxing spa get away ever, weve come up with a comprehensive list of all the best ones.

Augustine Spa in Prague

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

The Augustine Spa in Prague, Czech Republic, is a four-room spa and salon which takes residence in the Augustine monastery. While its tucked in the Gothic pillars of the building, its also an exceptional first-class spa redesigned by the master hotelier of U.K Rocco Forte.

The spa itself is a bit minimalist, sporting whitewashed walls, arched ceilings which are about a century old, and architecture that generally emanates the old world. The Augustine Spa draws a fine clientele of nobles from Central Europe, Hollywood celebrities, and even local moguls of real estate.

The spas best treatment is the 90-minute beer-based body rub. Have this with a full body massage and youll be rubbing all of your stress away. Other treatments include natural products made from Ila and Anika. The Augustine Spas director Dita Coufalova can also surprise you. Despite her diminutive size, she has the strongest pair of hands in Bohemia.

Aman Spa in Connaught, England

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

Undeniably the best spa in London, England, you should not miss out on the Aman Spa at the Connaught. The spa has a total of five treatment rooms (one designed for couples), a gym, a pool with seductive dark tiles, and minimalist architecture by Jaya Patromo Ibrahim.

Combining the styling principles of Asia and England, Ibrahim used dove-gray Portland stones and pale, honey-tinged oak for the interior. The effect: a very spacious spa which is both luxurious and relaxing. If this isnt zen enough for you, we dont know what is.

The spa draws a classy, understated clientele, especially on weekends. We recommend their one-hour full body massage which includes a heavenly foot massage, submerged crystal treatment, and a head massage you wont have anywhere else.

The only downside here is that the pool cant be accessed by spa customers unless youre also a guest at the hotel. You can also use the pool if you pay the annual spa membership fee.
