You are spending the greatest amount of time in Italy. You have no activity in any other country that would make that country the "main destination" over Italy. Italy is therefore the country responsible for deciding on your visa application. This is specified in article 5 of the Schengen Visa Code, in particular paragraphs 1 (b), found at http://eur-lex....

They are the Four Papal Basilicas in Rome: Top-left: St Peter's Basilica: Top-right: Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls - most photos - eg. the one on Wikipedia - show the more detailed Western face, but the drawing above depicts the Northern face: Bottom-left: Archbasilica of St. John Lateran: Bottom-right: Basilica of Saint Mary Major:

There are a reasonable number of car hire places which specialise in this kind of thing: essentially they rent you a car with track day insurance, and access to a track. Much like the "bring your own car" track days, but they provide the car too. http://www.bookatrack.com/ (UK site but covers other tracks in Europe) http://www.rsrnurburg.com/product/track-...

The best I can recommend to you is to become a member of the German Alpine Club (Deutscher Alpenverein, DAV) or the Austrian Alpine Club (ÖAV, all links in German). Membership costs varies depending on the "Sektion" you choose to become a member of (you can choose freely and I know many people who choose one purely based on cost) but is in the range of EUR50 ...

Just off the top of my head check out Nürburgring, which lets you drive your own, rent a car, train, etc... So have fun. P.S. From what I also been told owners may be able to test drive on Ferrari test track but this is hearsay.

You have a Schengen visa with start/end dates of 6/19 and 7/19. Between these two dates you have been given a total of 20 days to spend in the zone. The issuer expects you to spend your 20 days between 6/19 and 7/19. You are asking if it's OK to enter the zone on 7/10 and leave on 7/30 because your visa will be valid on your entry date and will have 20 ...

At the time of writing all the countries you list (UK - France - Belgium - Netherlands - Germany - Austria - Hungary - Romania) are part of the EU. This means that the regulations for travelling with pets are uniform amongst them. Since you are travelling with less than 5 animals you will have to follow the EU rules for non-commercial movement. Therefore, ...

For Spain, according to spain.info: If you are the citizen of an EU member state, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein: you only require your valid driver’s license. If you are from another country you will require an International Driver’s License. The IDP is just a translation of the license; the one I got had labels in French, Arabic ...

A good way for those that really want to see the dike is to take the bus and get off at the monument stop to catch the next service an hour later (till 8 PM now, check when you plan your journey.) Alternatively, travel to either end and walk onto the dike. You could rent a bicycle to ride onto the dike for a short distance, (see below)¹. The bike lane is ...

According to a couple of experts interviewed by the UK Telegraph: Bill O’Neill, head of the UK investment office at UBS Wealth Management, said: Obviously relative growth rates are part of it, as that always drives the value of currency. But in Europe it’s a different world. We’re talking about the next potential move for UK interest rates ...

The Short Answer is: Most Probably You need to note that licencing and qualifications are not standardised across the EU and as such each country sets their own licencing conditions (in practice most EU members will observe equal terms and skills recognition between member states). Further, most states of Australia have reciprocal skills recognition with ...

I just found a Tesla Model S ("or similar", which is what they put on every car, but they say they'll contact you to confirm after you book) from Sixt searching for a pickup from Frankfurt Airport (I randomly used 06/20/2016-06/22/2016) for a mere US$360.71/day. So they appear to have at least one for rent. Whether it's available under the exact terms you ...

This answer is assuming you have a through ticket from St. Pancras to your final destination in France/Belgium/Germany/whereever. I am not certain whether this also applies to a journey made up of two separate tickets unrelated to each other. For trains that operate within the European Union under the directive 95/18/EC (that is basically any train except ...

As far as I know, outside of the US, you can lock your luggage with whatever lock you like. I always (outside the US) use non-TSA locks where ever I go, nobody ever asked about it. If they really want to inspect your luggage they should ask you to open it for them. So yes, use your TSA lock. P.S. There may be more people with access to the TSA masterkey ...

I doubt that's possible. I cannot guarantee that it never ever happens and I realize it's not a very satisfying answer but I still think I can justify this conclusion. The thing is that, to my knowledge, EU rules do not explicitly forbid it (national rules or procedures might) but which stamp would you get exactly? Becoming part of the Schengen areas ...

I am a non-EU non-UK citizen who has traveled within the Schengen zone. I have stamps in my passport, but these the entry/exit stamps at the airport. I have made two journeys - which has resulted in 4 stamps in my passport. During my transits within the zone, I was never asked for my passport; as that's part of the entire Schengen concept - visa free ...

For gambling, like it or not, I would only go in state sanctioned casino; This will limit the risks of being scammed (IMO, mostly due to language issues). Try a different type of gambling, that can make things interesting compared to just trying to re-create what you do at home. For example, Monte Carlo casino have "American table games", including Texas ...

In principle, you can make minor changes but you should not change your plans so drastically, especially if you have a single entry visa (which is likely as a first-time applicant). In practice, if you enter and leave through the same country, you are very unlikely to run into problems (although it's possible). See also this answer to another question. But ...

I can't give financial advice or comment on the markets - for financial advice from people who know what they're talking about, try http://money.stackexchange.com and check what sort of currency speculation related questions they accept before posting - but in general if you need money to travel and the markets are unpredictable, you can reduce your risk by ...

I don't know about the rest of the EU, but I can tell you the situation here in the UK: Summary: for strictly recreational purposes there is no legal requirement. If you had your own boat you could take it out with no training, experience or certification at all (thankfully most people don't). So the level of certification/experience needed depends on the ...

You won't be able to travel legally with only the residence permit (permesso di soggiorno). You also need your titolo di vaggio per stranieri (refugee travel document). This passport-replacing document will allow you to visit other Schengen states visa-free for 90-in-180 days, and also apply for visas to visit any other countries, for example the UK or USA. ...

You can apply. The application will go to the embassy or consulate belonging to the main destination of your trip which is responsible for your place of residence. As a student in Russia, you are probably a resident of some town in Russia. If that is not the case, you are a resident some town in Pakistan. Your application may be denied. The Schengen area ...

If you do the same thing in each country (always business or always sightseeing) there is no clear main destination. Apply at the first country of your itinerary, i.e. Greece. If you do different things, you might be able to argue that another country is the main destination.
