Visiting Milan-Venice-Florence-Pisa-Rome through Regional Trains; Tips for Budget Travel

by Mozumbus

We are a group of 4-6 (age 26-29), planning to visit Italy and onwards (back-packing) in June, 2009. We would like to travel and visit as many places as possible and that too with minimum amount of time and money. I have made the following tentative itinerary with 2nd class fares (in Euros) on Regional Trains:

Points; Date; Fares; Duration
Venice-Bologna; 9-Jun-09; 8.90; 19:57-22:04
Bologna-Florence; 10-Jun-09; 5.40; 06:45-08:21
Florence-Pisa; 10-Jun-09; 5.60; 11:57-13:06
Pisa-Rome; 10-Jun-09; 17.65; 17:45-21:50

Question # 1: Kindly comment on the feasibility of this itinerary? Is it too ambitious?

Question # 2: Kindly let me know if there are any one-way combined tickets available from Venice to Rome (via Florence and Pisa) effective for two consecutive days that cost less than the combined fare of the above itinerary? I am asking this question after searching on Eurail and trenitalia.

Question # 3: Can we stay at Bologna Railway Station for the whole night (Rest Rooms, other options)?

Question # 4: Any other useful tip regarding site seeing, cheap accommodation (including hostels), etc?

(From Rome we will travel to Bari to catch superfast ferry to reach to Greece. From Athens we will take flight to Barcelona to travel onwards.)

If I have understood this correctly, you will only be in Bologna between 10.00 p.m. and 6.45 a.m, and then plan to visit Florence and Pisa and get to Rome the following day. This seems way too ambitious to me. You won't have time for more than a superficial dash round the most well-known sites and a few photographs.

This itinerary is way too ambitious. It's great if you want to spend your time on trains and in train stations, but if you really want to enjoy the history that Italy has to offer you are going to have to slow down. Oh to be in my 20's again. Have fun. Lee

Folks, it is already a year when I did my first backpacking trip to Europe with my friends.

Now that we are coming on-air, as a leading local channel 'Geo News' made a Travelmentary based on our Trip, I would like to take this opportunity to thank VT and all the fellow VTers who helped us in making all this possible. This was simply not possible without the kind and generous help from fellow VTers...

You may watch the trevelmentary at

First Episode of 'Backpack Europe' will be on-air today, i.e. Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 11:00 pm PST (+5 GMT)

Travel Tips for Venice

Venice's "Main Street" for Boats

by meteorologist1

The Grand Canal is like the main street of Venice. A lot of traffic, boat traffic that is. The buildings and houses along the Grand Canal sit right along the water; some maybe submerged under water. I will never forget the scene in Venice. It is absolutely one of a kind; you won't find this anywhere else in the world.

Boats are like cars in Venice. There are police boats, taxi boats, private boats, commercial boats, and sometimes you can also see the UPS (United Parcel Service) delivery boat.

Torre Dell'Orologio

by 36waterfalls

The Clock Tower with its blue enamel and gold leaf clock face is a beautiful feature on a grand square like San Marco. It doesn't only show the time, but also the position of the sun, the lunar phases and the signs of the zodiac. It's mechanism is been made by Swiss watchmakers Piaget. It has a huge bell on top, that should strike every hour on the hour. Under restoration at the moment.

Venice _ Islola di San Michele

by Martin_S.

Isola di San Michele is the island of the dead. This is the cemetary for Venice and that is all that is there, no life, maybe only the afterlife. I imagine it is very quiet there at night.....The water bus that we took did not pass real close, but thats okay..

Feeding the pigeons

by nighthawk

On Saint Marco square one can buy bird feed for 1 € .... a bit expensive in my opinion but when you have kids there s no escaping ... you gotta buy at least one package for each child....haha, only eldest had fun feeding, the other two were a bit scared of the birds flying on to them.

Bring warm clothing in December

by kph100

ideally a smallish bag that you can carry up the many bridges and steps. We went in December 2005 and it was very cold during the day, we both wore long sleeve shirts, jumpers, walking coats, scarves, hats and gloves and it was still cold. You can buy anything you forget. Lots of ilm or memory cards - you will need it.
