      We would be catching a train from Malpensa directly to Como/Varenna after a long haul from Australia. What are the pros/cons of choosing Varenna?
      A major "thing to do is" the Berlina Express for one day.

    • MXP to Rail station - Timing? Reservations?

      Milan Mar 26, 2014 at 10:32 PM

      Is there any advantage / disadvantage to making train reservations?

      Our flight from JFK is scheduled to arrive on a Friday before 7:00am. Our plan is to take the Express Train to Centralle station for the 2.5 hour trip to Venice. It would SEEM that the 9:35am departure from Milano would be reasonable goal, no?

      If we get to the station early, would we be able to swap our tickets for an earlier departure?
      In the more likely scenario, if our flight is delayed - and we miss the 9:35am departure, are our tickets worthless, or able to be used - without penalty on a later departure?

      by LagoMan Online Now Aug 26, 2013 at 7:33 AM

      Okay, we vacation at Lago di Garda very often...just about every year, BUT we're much more familiar with the west-side of the Lago than the eastern-side. We have a car, and what I'm looking for is a nice place to have a good Italian lunch in quiet surroundings right at lake-side but NOT IN A VILLAGE.. I'm pretty sure there are nice little restaurants in locations but they aren't so easy to find, so if someone out there could direct me to one where my wife and I could enjoy the quiet of the lake and some good Italian food for an anniversary lunch, it would certainly be appreciated! THANKS.

    • 4 or 5 days Lake Garda

      by TravellingLyn Online Now Jul 1, 2013 at 12:18 AM

      We are planning a trip from Australia to Italy in April '14. After Venice we would like to spend 4or 5 days at Lake Garda. We will be travelling by train and after much research it appears that the north part of the lake is quite different from the South. Sirmione and Malcesine both appeal very much. My question is whether staying for 2 nights at Sirmione to see the southern areas then by boat transferring with luggage to Malcesine for 2 or 3 nights to explore the northern end is a good idea as I see that it is a long trip up to the northern end to make a day of it only from Sirmione? Are you able to take luggage on these boats? How long is the boat trip to Malcesine? And if you we're doing 5 days would you do the 3 at Sirmione or Malcesine? Also a trip to Verona is on our list- would this be done easier from Sirmione or Malcesine and best on a tour or do our own thing if time restricted? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

      Hi All,
      We are planning to go to Lago di Garda at the end of October, from the 28th-30th.
      I am intent on booking a lakeside accommodation, I was looking at some pretty wooden chalets in a campsite only to realise they close at the beginning of October. I am quite disappointed as all the campsites seem to be closed.
      Is end of October a bad time to visit?
      Anyone can recommend a nice cheap place (around 60-70 Euros a night for 2 people)close to the lake?
      We have not decided on a particular town yet, as the most important thing for us is to be located as close as possible to the lake

    • Lago di Garda for 25th Anniversary - Where? (with a 6 yr old!)

      by Alison2000 Online Now Jan 20, 2011 at 1:45 AM


      It is our 25th anniversary this year, around the time we will be travelling back from our summer holiday in Austria to home near Rome. We would like to stop off somewhere on Lake Garda for a few nights to celebrate. I've been searching for somewhere to stay but can't really find anywhere that seems right. We don't have a huge budget (maximum 150 per night), so 5 star luxury is out, but I would like somewhere memorable - could be for the views, a lovely building, just something that feels a bit special at the time and nice to look back on. The only essentials are a swimming pool and somewhere not too far from the lake. We also prefer an apartment as it is nice to have somewhere separate from the bedroom to stay up once our son has gone to bed, and obviously has to be suitable for a 6 year old. We have a car so not dependent on public transport. If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful

      Thanks for any suggestions

      We are staying in Garda town next year and were wondering if there was a firm in the area which can hire out wheelchairs for a few days. Also are the ferries suitable for those with mobility problems. I can probably get on board but would find it diffiult to climb any steps inside. How far is the rail station from the harbour at Peschiera? We are hoping go to Verona for the day. We would like to go on the bus but would probably find they have steps. Sorry for the number of questions but when you are not too active you have to plan ahead!

      We are travelling to oberammergau on an organised tour in July, and then after we go to hotel oasi (near riva del garda I think) for a further 5 nights. We would really like to take advantage of the verona opera festival on one of these nights. I see that we can book opera tickets over the internet, but just wondering about how we would get to and from verona, particularly in view that the opera may finish quite late. Would we need to stay overnight in verona or is there some other way to get back to hotel oasi after the performance? Don't know what our chances would be in getting a taxi and what this might cost. A hire car might be an option, but not really very keen on driving & parking in verona. Any suggestions appreciated.
