Hi. Does anyone have a current email address for accounts at Enel please? They've sent me a cheque for a refund, whilst leaving a bill unpaid - why didn't they just credit my account...?!! TIA.

Set of 4 matching carved Oak, Jacobean style, antique dining charis.  Very pretty chairs, but sadly now surplus to requirements.  All in good condition, but they do all have their own little characteristics, as is to be expected with chairs of thi

Hi!  Does anyone know where drinks cartons (fruit juice, milk, wine, etc.) can be recycled, particularly in the Lucca/Bagni di Lucca area?  Back in the UK, they can't (I think) be recycled in Norfolk, but can in Essex, so it seems to vary from cou

If you disagree with the result, please sign the petition calling for a 2nd EU Referendum  - !  Perhaps it can make a difference...

I don't believe that you can pm or email within the current Q&A forum, which is a great pity. The ability to contact members privately is really essential to any forum, but unfortunately Italymag don't seem to appreciate this.

Hi Celia.  Yes, our house is still for sale.  We were out in Italy in February/March, but sadly I'm not sure when we'll next visit.  The agent's details are still as per the original post.  I will dig out some additional photos.  I''m not sure how to send a personal message on this 'new' forum, if in fact you can do, but somehow I'll get the photos to you!

Hi.  We too normally do the France, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland route, and incur no tolls, other than the annual Swiss Vignette, until Italy (where the alternative routes are soooooooo slow that we sadly give up on trying to avoid tolls!).  Maggi, I suggest that you get yourself a good Europe map book which differentiates between toll roads and non-tolled motorways (or at least show the toll booths so you can second guess the road category).  Also the AA website provides (or at least, used to) a list of current toll charges by country and road number, so you can use this list in conjunction with a map to plan a route.  Sadly, I think you'll spend much more by trying to stay on smaller roads, as the trip will take substantially longer - we've tried it and camped along the way, just for the craic!  The above route is still quite direct, and fast...

I too have the same problem.  Log/sign in, and the website then works correctly.
