      Different bus from Amerigo Vespucci (airport) to Santa Maria Novella (train station)

      Florence 4 hours ago

      I understand there is a bus named Volainbus that shuttles from the airport to the Florence train station every 1/2 hour for 6 euros one way. 1st question, how long is the 10 euro round trip ticket good after you validate it? 2nd question, is there a city bus that takes the same route for less? We went to Florence by train from Rome 2 years ago, so we are not familiar with the airport.

    • 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?

      3) is 1 day to spend at the town of Cortina too long? Would you recommend any stopovers along the way from Venice to Cortina?

      4) I am going with a group of 7 people, if i were to take the 1 day tours or book a van from Venice to Cortina, which tour company or van company would you recommend? and which is cheaper?

      Five years ago, I visited Orvieto. Along either the Corso Cavour or the Via A. di Cambio on the left side of the street, there is a small white/yellow church. If I remember correctly, The chiesa stands across from a small butcher's shop.

      In the chiesa, on the right side, under an altar is a small altar. Under that altar, is the body of a beato (i.e., blessed) dressed in the clothing of a monk (monaco). The body is not wholly decayed or corrupted.

      Have you seen this? If so, do you know how the beato is called, that is, his name? I seeme to remember his name being "Tommaso," but I can't find any information on "Blessed Tommaso of Orvieto" or anything even close.

      Thanks for any help you can provide. ~ Brian

    • Venice--Rome via Orvieto in one day: too much?

      by DMelanogaster Online Now May 20, 2008 at 9:27 AM

      After several days in Venice we'll be taking the train to Rome, but I would like to stop in Orvieto for an afternoon, just so my son can see the underground caves. I am concerned that the last tour in English begins at 4PM (I think. Maybe there are more in the summer? this will be in July). We won't get to Orvieto to catch an earlier tour.

      Is this doable given the Italian rail system? We don't have to be in Rome at any particular time -- we just have to check into our pensione at a reasonable hour, so 8PM or so would be fine.

      I was thinking we could arrive by train, have a NICE lunch (I've heard there are some great restaurants in Orvieto), take the underground tour, and catch the next train to Rome.

      Any thoughts or advice very much appreciated, thank you.
