    • Lombardy travel pass on a regional train to Venice

      Brescia Mar 17, 2015 at 11:56 PM

      Dear all!
      Does Lombardy travel pass cover the cost of a regional train (Regionale 2707 for example) to Venezia and backwards?
      The train is regional but Venezia is out of Lombardy, that's why I am asking.
      Thank you very much in advance for the information.

    • Lake Maggiore on the last week of October 2015

      Lombardy Mar 23, 2015 at 10:49 PM

      Hi

      I'm planning to visit Lake Maggiore and its surrounding on the 22-26 Oct this year. I understand it is nearing winter.

      Are tourism affected by the weather there ? Such as, ferries no longer running, or shops closed, and all that we could see are the sceneries without being able to take any ferry ride out to the other areas.

      Additionally, does any knows whether the Lake Maggiore Express be operating in that period of the year.
      I've checked on the website, and the schedules are til June. We would like to see the picturesque scenery.

      Any help is much appreciated.

      Train stations name confusion

      Milano Mar 23, 2015 at 8:35 AM

      I'm trying to get from Malpensa airport to Treviglio and have seen the name of a station Milano PGP(Passante) and then just Milano PG. Is this two different stations? or two different platforms at the same station? Seen trains leaving from both, so want to make sure I'm in the right place :) Thanks

      Milan - Geneva Eurocity after June 13

      Milan Feb 28, 2015 at 8:51 AM

      If one is to believe the timetables (SBB and Trenitalia, as well as DB), there will be no Eurocity service between Milan and Geneva, or even to Brig, after June 13. Since I also notice there are apparently no Freccia trains scheduled after that date, I was wondering if there was some sort of mid-year timetable change. Since I can find no mention of one, even from the Man in Seat 61, does anyone have any further information on when the new timetables might be available? Thanks.

    • Milan to Ventimiglia to Monaco

      Milan Feb 19, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      Hello all and thanks in advance for the help. This site is great.
      -I was misinformed that in order to go to Milan to Monaco, I would need to take a train from Milano Centrale to Ventimiglia then take a train from Ventimiglia to Monaco.
      -So I bought a train ticket on Trenitalia (Thello 159 depart at 15:10) from Milano Centrale to Ventimiglia, but now I realize that that same train will actually continue on to Monte Carlo.
      -Do you think it would be okay if I simply stayed on the train. The far from Milan to Ventimiglia is the exact same as the fare from Milan to Monte Carlo, Monaco. Instead of getting off and taking another train could I simply stay on and continue to my destination?

      Thanks

    • Trenitalia | Can't book as a non registered user

      Milan Feb 17, 2015 at 6:37 AM

      Hi,
      -Trying to book a ticket from Milan Centrale to Ventimiglia on March 17th.
      -When I go through all the options and attempt to pay I get the following error message "To continue it is required to enter user name and password"
      -I am not Italian/ do not reside in Italy which is a requirement for registering. So as far as I can tell, I must purchase the ticket as a non registered user. But I get the above message.
      -The train is not regional so the "7 Days out " rule shouldn't be an issue.

      Thank you in advance to anyone that is able to offer some information about this. I have read through a couple of threads that say this is more difficult than it should be but I have also heard that it's fairly simple. Maybe I am missing something? Looking forward to getting this done as soon as possible. As I understand it, the tickets get more and more expensive the closer you get to the travel date. So I would like to book as far in advance as possible in order to save money on my trip. Thank You

      Como (Town) in Winter?

      I'm thinking of going for a trip by train to Como. I am going to stay in Milan for a few days 5-9 Feb in a hotel at Via San Gregorio 30, Stazione Centrale. First, I would you mind telling me if it is reasonable to visit the town and see a part of the lake in winter. Not too chilly or empty because of lack tourists and so on. I love walking / hiking. Are there any walking paths or maybe hiking trails around the town? Secondly, I would be obliged to ensure of a railway station I would pick to start my journey. Is it Stazione Nord and LeNord Rail Company commuting there? Or maybe there are trains from the Main Station? Thanks for information.
