Local Buses in an around Benevento

by plainham

I'm looking for local bus timetables available on the web for journeys between Benevento and Grottaminarda - any ideas?

RE: Local Buses in an around Benevento

by mccalpin

After much looking, I have finally found this at http://www.marozzivt.it/ (all in Italian). This is the website for the Marozzi bus company.

bus 1004 leaves Benevento at 02:40 (yes, 2:40 am) and arrives in Grottaminarda at 03:15.

bus 1629 leaves Benevento at 10:10 and arrives in Grottaminarda at 10:45.

bus 717 leaves Benevento at 13:40 and arrives at Grottaminarda at 14:15.

Note that all these buses are really long distance buses that just happen to pass through (hence the odd hours).

Oddly enough, the usual Italian bus websites that do bus routing don't think that anything connects these two towns...and the closest train station to Grottaminarda is Ariano Irpino (and I'm having trouble finding buses that go between here and Grottasminarda as well).

If you can read any Italian, this is the city's webpage on how to get to Grottaminarda - see http://www.comunedigrottaminarda.it/include_pagine/index.php?sezioni=dove_siamo .

Bill,
VMT, I did find the Marozzi site but it wasn't very helpful. I'll follow up your leads later this evening. My real challenge is to use buses in and around Grotta and to get back to Benevento on a Sunday morning to catch the Eurostar to Rome Termini? The other option is to travel slightly earlier to Avellino by Bus and catch a train to Benevento.
There must be local bus operators in and around the Avellino region.

Hmmmn, well, the Marozzi site isn't going to help much going from Grottaminarda to Benevento on a Sunday morning. We have a bus leaving at 03:15 and arriving at 03:40, and the other three leave at 10:45, 15:15, and 19:15...I assume you are trying to take the 09:58 Eurostar from Benevento to Rome Termini, so these would be too late.

Well, I suppose you could look for a bus all the way to Rome, or take a later train to Rome, and consider moving the night before...but it sounds like you are already considering all these options...

Travel Tips for Benevento

Stumbling on a Beautiful Secret

by mikey_e

"Chance brought me here"

Benevento suffers from two different curses. First, it is in southern Italy, a part of the Italian peninsula that is shamefully ignored by many tourists who concentrate on the big three: Rome, Florence and Venice. Second, Benevento is inland, far from the coast and not really on the route between major cities or destinations (although it is relatively close to Naples). All together, this means that most of the people who comes to visit Benevento are Italian tourists, which provides the "off-the-beaten-track" foreign tourist with a very different feel. Benevento comes from the Roman name for the city, Beneventum, good wind, and it certainly was a lucky wind that blew me here on my aimless wanderings through south-central Italy.

"Convenience and history"

One of the greatest parts of benevento is the fact that almost all of its historic sites lie on or just off of Corso Garibaldi, the long street that cuts across the historic centre. When I visited in 2005, much of Corso Garibaldi was under restauration or reconstruction, which leads me to believe that it must be even more enjoyable today to walk through along the street that collects the millenia of history associate with this town. Benevento has something to appease most fans of history. Although the town was founded by the Romans, it contains clear influences from Egyptian and Greek sources. The Longobards made their mark on the town, and the presence of Papal guards and frequent visits by various Popes all helped to reinforce the cultural and artistic heritage of what is now a forgotten attraction.
