    Venice efficient vaporetto boat shuttle system is easy to use and understand. If you intend to travel a lot during your stay, a tourist ticket can be bought for various periods of time.

    Florence Transportation

    Florence is a great walking city, but sometimes you need a little help. You can catch the orange ATAF buses for trips around the city that are just too long to walk (or if the weather is really atrocious!). They are easy to use – simply purchase your ticket from one of the newspaper vendors around town (you can purchase tickets on board but they...

    Milan Transportation

    The easiest and the quickiest way to get to Malpensa airport, and vice versa, is by the city train express. This is Stazione Cadorna, the train station from where the train starts to Malpensa and vice versa, where the train is coming from the airport. The station is situated on Piazza Cadorna, you can't miss it coz there is a giant needle and...

    Verona Transportation

    To get to Verona I took the EuroCity train from Munich via Innsbruck. This is a convenient connection, several times daily, with good mountain views along the way. Second photo: The dining car is fine for having a cup of coffee and using one of the big tables to write on, but I can't honestly recommend having a meal here. Third photo: The main...

    Pompeii Transportation

    Getting to Pompeii and/or Herculaneum is very easy and inexpensive by train from Sorrento (we did) or Naples. Go to the station and ask for round-trip tickets on the Circumvesuviana: you'll want the Napoli-Sorrento line, trains run frequently (although not 24/7) and the trip will take about 30-40 minutes from either place. You'll want to get off at...

    Pisa Transportation

    If truth to tell there is very little to see in Pisa (although I'm sure other will disagree) apart from the famous tower, together with the Cathedral and baptristry. If you want to make a 'flying visit' and are travelling by train then using the secondary station 'Santa Rossore' means you can avoid the main tower and take a five minute walk from...

    Genoa Transportation

    Going to Genova by train is probably the wisest solution, even if not the cheaper one too. If you come from the North of Italy or from the Western part of the region (Savona and Imperia provinces), you will be lucky to get off at the Piazza Principe station. I am saying this because this station lies in the old downtown and is, therefore, a good...

    We flew into Bergamo Orio Al Serio airport and spent a night in Bergamo before travelling to Como the following day. Although the distance from Bergamo is only around 30 miles (50km) there is no direct route by train. Another thing to bear in mind is that Como has several railway stations. The two main ones being Como San Giovanni and Como Largo...

    Vernazza Transportation

    The area of Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre is relatively small and yet, one day trip isn't enough even to get an idea about it, especially if your agent has "run and gun" idea of visiting the park. The walking trail in between Riomaggiore and Monterosso al Mare is 9km long and it takes about 5 hours. The longest single distance is 4km and it's...

    The Ryanair site lists only one bus a day, but has two flights a day. I'm pretty sure that they run a bus to meet each incoming and outgoing planet, but you might want to double-check.

    Genoa Public Transport There are several funiculars (and lifts) in Genoa. The only one I have used is the one from Largo Zecca ( near Via Garibaldi with all the beautiful villas) up to Righi. It takes about 20 minutes, is a thrill in itself, and up top there is a fabulous view, at least one cafe, and a castle that is apparently worth the ten...
