    How long, how many

    Hi,
    i'm often in trouble using some english forms.

    May you help me to check if the following phrases are correct?
    May you give me other ways to say the same things?

    - (in a plane) How long will we take to get to London?
    - (waiting somebody) How long will he take to get there?
    - When will you leave to Italy? (but i would like to ask for how many days)
    - (waiting to leave) How long to leave?

    Cheers

    I'd change the last two
    - How long will you be in Italy? (but i would like to ask for how many days)
    - (waiting to leave) How long before we leave?
