You should stay in Levanto, which is just before Monterosso : it's much cheaper, and you will have a lot more options regarding accomodation (B&Bs, hotels, etc). There is a train station allowing you to go directly to all of the villages if you want to go by train. You can also take the boat, and hop from town to town : it's really a nice way to ...

The problem that you state is known in academia as the Traveling Salesman Problem as pointed out by @ZachLipton. Googling for that expression in combination with app/website/software gives a few good finds. As apps I could find e.g. Concorde TSP and Route4Me (no affiliation nor experience). A nice online tool is Optimap which seems to use Google ...

Does GeoMidPoint accomplish what you have in mind? It calculates the midpoint between different addresses. I punched in 5 cities around my area, and it indicated the location that was in the middle. This would not indicate, specifically, what is 3.5 hours from each of you, but it would give you the opportunity to all drive an equal distance.

Wikipedia maintain a list of car-free places, organised by continent and by country (credit to choster's comment). It includes many that aren't islands, but it's easy to find islands on the list. There's also a French-language list restricted to car-free islands on French Wikipedia. Here's a selection of notable islands taken from that site, I've tried to ...

The Air Quality Index There are several air quality monitoring websites out there. These use an Air Quality Index (AQI) ranging from 0 to 500, where a 0 indicates good air quality, and 500 indicates hazardously unhealthy air, as detailed in the table below: Worldwide Air Quality Monitors The World Air Quality Index Team runs an online real-time ...

I would recommend looking at this live and historical dataset of air quality, mapped out globally. Values over 100 indicate the air quality could be problematic for sensitive groups, such as asthmatics. . It's important to note that air quality varies a lot based on time of year, weather, etc. so look at the values for the same dates as you plan to travel ...

Google flights can do this, you can select airports, places, countries, continents or just "Everywhere", you can also select interests (eg, Outdoor, food, etc) You can set a price range, and then see on the map where you can go. I spent a day in Copenhagen for about £20-30 thanks to this. (and it also used to have a really nice bar chart for each ...

I am a fan of Adioso, it allows you do all of what you've asked for, the only catch is you have to specify at least a city in the departure field, but any other field is capable of accepting broad values. You can specify a time, or chose "any time". For the destination, you can specify a city, a country, etc. You can then sort the results according to the ...

WhichAirline has a similar functionality to whichbudget as far as I can see. You can enter countries but it might give you an error that this search is too broad, in that case it might help to search to "Anywhere" and then sort the results by country. Also Skypicker might be useful. You can do countries or draw circles on a map for departure/destination ...

Skyscanner allows what you're looking for. Just type the country of origin and destination. It even allows you to set the destination as all the world instead of country. In Skyscanner you will also be allowed to make broad searches regarding time. You can specify the time windows of your flight as specific days, but also as a month (eg.: departing in ...

The NMBS/SNCB journey planner knows about local transport, including bus lines. I'm not sure they always have information on service disruption or changes on short notices, so also check with the local bus operator, De Lijn, TEC, or STIB.
