For what its worth this is the route we have used on a couple of occasions and found to be good. Fuel in Luxembourg, Stopped in Mulhouse, Dunkirk crossing - all good.

I dont know anything about old groups, banned people, or anything else, but if there's a Northern Tuscany group...........I want in!

I believe it is standard around the Serchio Valley/Garfagnana area. It is certainly in vogue in San Romano though can't comment on other areas of Italy.

 We were also recently charged around 200+euros so that seems to be a standard charge.  Readings were all completed correctly.

We have used Smart Currency and TorFX both with no problems.  I would hesitate to recommend anyone though, given recent experiences.There is a major difference between Authorised by: and regulated by: the FSA. Just make sure that whoever you use ringfences your money just in case there's another Crown Currency escapade!

or Grazie mille! I do speak a little Italian but I just didn't know the word for logs/firewood etc and I know the local shop arranges it but being a newcomer thought  it might look a little strange wandering the streets with a big wooden stick in my hand   :-) will probably want to light it just for the sheer hell of it. slainte

I have used the site: http://www.comparemoneytransfer.co.uk/personal_money_transfers/ which I find useful.  I have accounts with smart currency and Interchange, both of which worked well. I also have an account with Crown Currency for fixing rate in advance.  all of which gives a variety of options. All three are registered with the FSA.

As in all these things it is very much a personal opinion.  I would agree with taking the train though -nice and central in Termini and no hassle with parking. How long to stay? depends - we been several trips on 3-4 day stays each and still go back for more. San Giovanni in Laterano is well worth a visit as has previously been said.  Gotta do the usual stuff -Sistine Chapel,  Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Colloseum etc.  Going up to the top of St Peter's is really good. Personnaly I like Piazza Navona, Campo Dei Fiori and some of the best restaurants over in Trastevere
