      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?

    • Io viaggio in Lombardia ticket from Bergamo Orio Al Serio airport

      Bergamo Mar 9, 2014 at 7:02 AM

      We will be arriving at Bergamo airport in a few weeks and wish to buy two of the 7 day IVOL tickets for €41.10 each.

      Please can anyone tell me:

      1. Can the tickets be bought at the airport?
      I know I can get them in Bergamo at the SAB offices or the train station but wondered if they could be obtained at the airport tourist information desk or automated ticket machines.

      2. Are the tickets valid for the #1 bus from the Airport into Bergamo?
      I know the tickets are not valid for the airport to Milan shuttle buses. I also know the tickets are not valid for the Malpensa train to Malpensa airport but cannot find any exclusions relating to Bergamo urban buses.

      3. If I manage to get the IVOL tickets at the airport then do I need to buy a €2.10 ticket for a large suitcase when using the #1 bus into Bergamo?
      This would be the case if I were buying €2.10 timed tickets but is included when purchasing ATB 24 of 72 hour tickets. I cannot find any info regarding the situation with the IVOL ticket.

      Thanks

      Can non-residence buy advance Trenitalia tickets online from oversea without registering as member

      Milan Feb 22, 2014 at 8:09 PM

      We will arrive from Switzerland at 20:00 hour 26th March 2014 for a brief 1 night stopover in Milan. The next day at 15:00 hour 27th March 2014 we need to get train tickets from Milan Centrale to Bordighera. Can anyone nice please advice us on, (1) The Trenitalia website stated that new member registration is only for residence in Italy. So that means those outside Italy are barred right?

      While I was doing the booking on their website, somewhere in the process I notice they said “NO INVOICE WILL BE ISSUED FOR TICKETS PURCHASED by NON-REGISTERED MEMBER”. Does it mean that if we still proceed to book & complete the payment by credit cards, no Invoice, no acknowledgement & no confirmation emails will be send to us by Trenitalia to confirm our booking + payments ?

      (2) On the other hand, if (will they?) only send to me a confirmation email or booking number ( instead of the original invoice for the booking) & I got it printed out, will that be good enough to show proof to ticket master when I board the train ? Or do I need to get it stamped officially at the Tickets Office first ?

      (3) Is it better to buy the Milan Centrale to Bordighera tickets from the tickets vending machine or Ticket Office at Milan Centrale when we arrive on the night before ? Will it be very expensive, and could it be risky as it may sold-out ?

      (As I compared the prices online listed for that particular trip for today’s journey is at €30 p/p while if I book 1 mth in advance is €15 p/p.)

      Please advice & thank you in advance for your kind assistance. With Regards. Yang

      Milan/Como/Bellagio day trip

      Only have one day to do this. Day trip in the morning from Milan to Como to Bellagio and then back to Milan the same evening. What is roughly the total transportation cost (e.g. train, boat, etc) roundtrip? Alternatively, there are tour operators online that sell this day trip for about $120 US dollars, that would save me the effort of figuring out all the transportation options. Does anyone know if this seems to be a reasonable price? Thanks!
