    • enough time for transfer ferry from Santa Teresa di Gallura

      Porto Torres Mar 2, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      We arrive with Grimaldi ferry from Barcelona to Porto Torres on 22th August at 11.30am. We want to get a ferry from Santa Teresa to Bonifacio with Moby ferrys at 15h. We have seen in google maps that the journey by road from Porto Torres to Santa Teresa is about 1h44m so I guess that would have enough time to get the 15h ferry.

      Can anyone confirm this?

      2) is the bus station at Cortina the town itself? if not, how do i get there? how much? And would i be able to see all the beautiful landscape/alps/mountains? Or i would need to go outskirts? If yes, how do i go?

      I'm currently a college student who will be going to Bolzano for an internship at a winery. My internship is for 90 days. I'm departing out of Massachusetts on May 15th for Verona (changing over in Paris). Once in Verona, I'm taking a train to Bolzano.

      I have several questions about the area. My first is how expensive is public transportation? I'll need to buy a ticket from Verona to Bolzano, and then hire a taxi from the train station in Bolzano to the winery. How much can I expect to spend on both the train ticket and taxi drive?

      How is the area for young adults? I'm 19 as it is, and traveling alone. Is there a youth population for me to blend into? Clubs? I know there are a few pubs, as I have checked in with Temple Bar so far.

      How often is soccer played out there? I'm an avid fan of the game and love to play, will there be opportunities to play?

      Any other pieces of information are genuinely appreciated, so any advice offered is welcomed.

      My wife and I will visit Bolzano in a couple of weeks (April 6-10). We like to hike, snow shoe and Nordic (cross country) ski. We aren't interested in groomed skiing or lift skiing, but like back country skiing on moderate terrain. If Nordic skiing is too hard, we like to snow shoe. I assume that there will be plenty of snow then (too much for hiking).

      So, we want to know about places to Nordic ski or snow shoe outside of Bolzano. Does anyone know of a good place to rent snow shoes or Nordic ski equipment? I also assume that we need to rent a car, but we would prefer public transportation if that is possible. Thanks!

    • Visiting Bolzano from Milan or Venice

      by GryphonChow Online Now Oct 15, 2008 at 12:41 PM

      Hello Bolzano and train travel experts:

      My husband and I will be flying into Milan for a 9-day visit with our 8-month old baby in the first weeks of December 2008. We want to fit in a quick trip by train to Bolzano, which we understand is 3.5 hours from Milan. From Bolzano, we have the option of returning by train to Milan or on to Venice or even Zurich to catch a flight to Canada.

      Which of the above three airports is our best option after we have visited Bolzano? We prefer a scenic train ride through the Alps, if possible, but are concerned about inclement weather, rock slides, avalanches, etc. possibly stranding us in Bolzano or en route. How likely is this to happen?

      Also, we do not want to spend more time than is absolutely necessary on the train. We would rather spend time walking around seeing the sights instead of sitting for long hours on a train trying to get somewhere and then not having time there to actually experience anything.

      Alternatively, we are open to making either Milan or Venice our base, and going on a day trip or overnight trip to Bolzano from either city. Is a day trip feasible with a young baby slowing us down?

      I notice from the Trenitalia website that many of the Milan-Bolzano trains require a train change in Verona. We do not speak Italian so we are nervous about missing the announcements directing us to hop off the first train and on to the next train. Will there be announcements in English? In Verona, will there be clear signs posted to help us find the connecting Verona-Bolzano train?

      We will likely have 3 or 4 bags that are on wheels. Will we have enough time to move our bags from train to train?

      Any helpful information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
