directions from milano to visby

what is the best way to travel to and from

RE: directions from milano to visby

by Sjalen

How much time do you have? The fastest way would be to fly to Stockholm and then either change plane and continue to Visby:

Skyways is a company flying both from Stockholm's Bromma and Arlanda airports to Visby (many otherwise only fly from one or the other, or just Bromma, whereas your Milan flight probably take you to Arlanda):

You could also check what SAS has as they might have through deals Milan-Stockholm-Visby.

With more time, fly to Stockholm, then get a local commuter train from Stockholm city centre to Nynäshamn (about an hour south) and then catch a ferry, either high speed or normal. Here are the ferries:

Travel Tips for Visby

Helpful Hints for Tourists

by starship

Currency
Even though Sweden is a member of the European Union, it has chosen not to use the Euro as its unit of currency. Being that Gotland is part of Sweden, the national currency of Sweden is also used on Gotland and of course in Visby. The Swedish unit of currency is the Krona which is abbreviated SEK or SKR. One Swedish Krona is the equivalent of 100 Ore (forgive the lack of grammatical accent). When we visited in August, 2005, one U.S. Dollar was worth about 7.8 Kronor. However, you may wish to ask individual merchants if they will accept American money as some did on our visit there. If not, ATM's or currency exchange offices are open approximately 7 a.m. to 9p.m. Major credit cards are accepted in some establishments, but inquire first.

Language
Swedish is the predominant language of Gotland, but English is also spoken.

Tipping
Service charges are usually included in restaurant bills and taxi fares.

Shopping
Shops are generally open weekdays from about 9 a.m. to 6p.m. However some larger stores open later. Sweden is famous for crystal, but also woolen clothing, amber and the traditional "Salahast" carved, painted horses from the Dalarna province. You will recognize the stylized little horses painted red or blue with additional decorative painting detail as soon as you see them. They are very cute and make a nice gift. (In Stockholm I purchased some chocolates shaped in the form of the "Salahast" horses.

If you see the 3-crown stamp on any gold jewelry, you can be sure that this stamp indicates a minimum gold purity of 18 carats. I am a postcard collector and sender and the postcards in Visby got less expensive as you wandered further into the center of Visby. This rule also applies to the cost other souvenirs as well because the shops closest to the cruise ship piers charge more for everything hoping to snare the unwary passenger.

Swedish

All public signs in Visby are in Swedish, but most of the people there understand English and German. Here are some words in Swedish that may be helpful to you:

thank you = tack

yes/no = ja/nej

please = var snäll

hello or goodbye = hej

you're welcome = var sa god

Walks around in the city.

by Dizzyhead

If you dont want to be on the beach all day and you want to exercise and also get some historical information and see the best historical sites in Visby, you shall book a guided tour through Visby. You can call this number or mail this guide named Irene, and get further information. Bring good shoes when you walk inside Visby. No high heel girls!!!!

Cafés

by emilienoelle

Visby is chock full of cute, romantic cafés where anyone can sit and sip coffee or a glass of wine while taking in the beautiful sights. While some people might not think of this as being something to do worth mentioning, it is to me! You should see some of the men there!

Viking House

by MikeAtSea

This is the only remaining house built according to the viking tradition. The houses were easy assembled since they could be taken apart and built up somewhere else again, since the vikings were always on the move conquering parts of Scandinavia and other parts of Europe.
