realistic schedule for someone new to area?

by Ldeck3

I am traveling in July Verona to Badhofgastein Austria. When I look on the train schedule it has me changing: arriving venezia maestre at 11:28 and then walking to what I guess is a bus station and leaving at 11:40 The symbol says walk to what I assume is a bus station Viale Stazione? This goes to Villach Hbf 14:50 and leave 15:16 to Badgastein. Is this a realistic schedule for two people who are not fluent and do not know the area? It says ES OBB ICbus Obb EC
It is the shortest timed route but may be too complicated. Is anyone aware how difficult to get from Venezia maestre to the icbus station and the same in Villach. Perhaps someone is better at reading this schedule on the OBBwebsit. It is Verona Porta Nuova to Bad Hofgastein. Thankyou for your trouble.

I can't understand how it's possible go from Verona to Austria via Venice.
It's not normall, because it's a direct way via Brennero pass (if you look the map you understand me).
So I check the and what we have for example 14 July:

if you take EC 188 from Verona Porto Nuova 06:59 you will have only 1 change already in Austria's Rosenheim, where you take EC 113 and arrive in Bad Hofgastein in 15:28.

Also you can take for the same way two more trains, which depart from Verona in 08:59 or 12:59 and arrive at Bad Hofgastein 17:28 or 21:28 .

You must check your's concrete dates and I hope you can find the same easy way for your's destination.

Good luck !

I'm very sorry. Of course Rosenheim is a Germany, the reason of my mistake is that usually Rosenheim is a changing point from Munich airport to Austrian Alps resorts and sometimes it is perceived as a part of Austria, especially it's not far from Austrian border.
Sorry once again !

Good luck !

No, you're reading it correctly...I am using the German rail website ( but it looks like the same info is there.

"Viale Stazione" is the street in front of Venice Mestre; it is common in Italy to have a bus terminus close to the train station, say, across the train station piazza or down the street. You can easily get to the bus...if you exit the station and walk in the right direction. I agree that 12 minutes is just not a whole lot of time if anything goes wrong.

In Villach, it looks like the bus stop is actually at the station ("Villach Hbf(Bussteige 1-4)" is "Villach main train station, bus stops 1-4") so 25 minutes should be plenty of time...

Listen, if you want to do this bus thing (it IS faster than the train alternatives), look at taking the 09:29 train from Verona to Venice Mestre (arr 10:28), then you'll have a little more than an hour to stop in the cafe in Mestre, have something to eat, buy some water and eats for the trip to Villach (most Europeans bring their lunch on the train or bus), and leisurely find the bus stop. The train at 09:29 is a EuroCity just like the one at 10:29 (the one you were talking about), so the fare would be the same; you would just have a longer layover in Venice.

Or just make a day of it, leave Verona at 08:59, arrive in Rosenheim at 13:43, depart Rosenheim at 15:02 and arrive in Bad Hofgastein at 17:28. Takes longer, but you have only one change, with an adequate layover in Rosenheim to restock on edibles and a newspaper. Yes, it takes longer, but it's simpler.

Can't tell you about the pricing since this spans three countries...


Travel Tips for Verona

visit the HOME OF JULIET...

by Krystynn

visit the HOME OF JULIET CAPULET. Can you spot the famous Balcony where Juliet once uttered these immortal words... 'Romeo, Romeo... Wherefore art thou, Romeo??'....

P.S. Er.... for some of you out there, no... Juliet Capulet is not the name of a famous Italian Rock Star! Apparently in Verona's Registry of Birth & Death, there is really a lady by the name of Juliet Capulet who lived and died sometime in the 1500s... and surprise, surprise (!!), a guy named Romeo Montague too. This couple truly inspired the great William Shakespeare to pen his famous play - 'Romeo & Juliet'. Ah, now you remember....

Here's the all-important address: Casa di Giulietta, 27 Via Cappello.

Verona - church spire

by Martin_S.

On one of the streets that we walked we found this spire over a courtyard, or what looked to be a courtyard. We looked for signs as to why this was there, but we did not see any signs of a graveyard or monument. Maybe someone will recognize this and give a hand. It is a beautiful piece of work, intricate in fanciful detail, but WHY?? Okay, have some new information sent to me by sandysmith who was kind enough to give a hand... this is what she had to say:
""Just after the Piazza dei Signori are the impressive graves of the Scaligeri family - located on the grounds of the small church of St Maria Antica. The three splendid arches built for Cangrande I, Mastino II and Cansignorio, by artists from different areas. The original horseback statues of Cangrande and Mastino II have been moved for safekeeping (the statue of Cangrande is on display at Castelvecchio Museum now). ""

Thanks again Sandy...

Mathias von der Schulemburg

by Azhut

In the countyard of Palazzo del Capitano, opposite to Porta Bombardiera, stands a big statue of Count
Mathias von der Schulemburg, an "employee" of Venetian Republic, that became famous during the defense of Corfù at the end of the XVII century and became a governor of the Serenissima. The monument of Mathias von der Schulemburg and on his left, Werner von der Schulemburg (writer), was inaugurated in october 2003. The epigraph declaims in italian:

A J. Matthias von der Schulenburg(1661-1747), raffigurato in questa statua settecentesca, feldmaresciallo della Serenissima, eroico difensore di Corfù dai Turchi (1716), poi governatore militare di Verona, rendeva omaggio Werner von der Schulenburg (1881-1958), letterato tedesco innamorato dell’Italia e di Verona, che con agile penna rievocò le gesta dell’antenato.

Palazzo Giusti

by croisbeauty

The Giusti Gardens, with their adjoining 16th century Palace, constitute an urban complex of great interest and beauty.
The picture of the Palace was taken from the inner courtyard, because this part of the building is much more attractive then the front facade. Actually, I have missed it passing by the first time I was searching for the park. Out of the street it looks like an unattractive huge block of the buildings.

San Zeno - Oratorio di San Benedetto

by croisbeauty

My camera have captured the bell tower of the basilica from the angle under the arcades of the Oratorio of San Benedetto. The beautiful Romanesque belltower from the first half of the 12th century is of superbly masterful design.
The arches on two of the opposing sides of the cloister are ogival, while those on the other two sides are rounded. Slim double columns support the arches.
