Buying an Interrail One-Country Pass Italy in Milan?

by Venelin

Hi,

Is it possible to buy an Interrail ticket for Italy in Milan? I am not a resident of Italy and I am thus entitled to use it in the country. Still, buying it here will be the most convenient for me.
If they don't want to sell a ticket to me, can I order it online and have it sent here? Or should I specify an address outside Italy?

Thank you for the information.

Do you qualify for Interrail? Your profile says you live in Italy.

You can buy an InterRail Pass if you are a European resident. You are considered to be a European resident if you have been staying in Europe for more than 6 months on the first day of validity of your InterRail Pass.

Yes, I do qualify. I have been in Italy for two weeks now and I will need the pass in November. I am a Bulgarian citizen and I have always lived in Europe.
True that I did not make it precisely clear in my question. Sorry for that.

Well, a brief read of the Interrail website suggests that you can have it sent to places within Europe - I didn't check to see if it would accept an Italian address for a pass for Italy... see http://www.interrailnet.com/

OK, now I stepped through the process to buy an 8 day pass good only for Italy, 2nd class, using my former address in Italy, and the website didn't seem to have a problem with it up to asking for my credit card info (which I am obviously not going to give), so I am thinking that you will be able to claim Bulgarian citizenship and get the pass shipped to you in Italy.

Let us know how it works out!

Travel Tips for Milan

Università Statale

by draguza

Situated in via Festa del Perdono 7, The University degli Studi of Milan is a very recent institution, of which it was solemnized a short while ago (1994) the 70th year since its foundation.

In spite of its ancient importance as political and economic centre, Milan never had an University like those of other Italian towns (in Bologna the University was founded in the 13th century, the University of Pavia, near Milan, dates back to the 14th century), but in the past centuries some advanced Institute acted there: Schools of Philosophy (1500) or of Surgery (1600) and the humanistic "Palatine" Schools (from 1600).
In 1924, August 24th, it was subscribed the agreement of the birth of Università degli Studi of Milan, which was composed by four Faculties: Laws, Humanities, Medicine and Surgery, Sciences.

Piazza Giulio Cesare

by draguza

This square is very beautiful to me, as it is sorrounded by the green and trees, very unusual thing in Milan!

The square is located in an area of the city called "Fiera" and it was built during the Fascism era but it is of Neoclassic style, as the statues reproduce ancient Romans

Big department store

by draguza about La Rinascente

La Rinascente, on Milan's central square (Duom), has ten floors of fashion, accessories, perfumes and household goods. Other amenities include a spa, hairdressers, bar with cathedral views and a vast food market.

Fashion ranges from Prada to Diesel. Giorgio Armani even started his career here as a window dresser. Don't miss the top-floor restaurant for its terrace bar. women fashion, men fashion, cosmetics, jewellery., watches...

Getting around the city

by mindcrime

Although there are some buses and many trams it's easier to use the 3 subway lines that run 5:30am-11:30pm(00:30 on saturdays) and reaches many parts of the city. There are single tickets(1euro) but the one-day ticket costs only 3 euro and it's valid for 24 hour from the time you validate it.

Cisalpino tilting train

by Nemorino

I arrived at Milan Central Station on a Cisalpino tilting train from Spiez, Switzerland.

These trains go under the Swiss Alps through the new Lötschberg Basis-Tunnel, which was built from 1998 to 2006 and was opened for full-scale scheduled rail traffic in December 2007.

This new tunnel is about four hundred meters lower than the original Lötschberg tunnel from the year 1913, and it shortens the distance from Spiez to Brig by about ten kilometers.

The tilting train is the one on the left in the photo, and on the right is a conventional (non-tilting) Cisalpino train.

The advantage of the tilting trains is that they can lean into the curves and thus go faster through mountainous routes than conventional trains. But the downside is that some people start feeling queasy if the leaning is too severe.

Update: The Cisalpino company ceased operations in December 2009 because of numerous problems with maintenance and punctuality, and because people complained about feeling nauseous on the tilting trains. (I didn't have any of these problems, but a lot of other travelers did.)

Now the trains between Switzerland and Italy are again operated directly by the Swiss and Italian railways, mainly under the name "EuroCity", so in the timetable they are called EC instead of CIS. I haven't traveled this route since the change took place, so I can't say what effect it has had, if any, on punctuality and comfort.
