      have been searching the various websites for bus transportation from Palermo to Erice: appears that the only way to get there by bus is to go to Trapani and then get a cable car up to the town.

    • Safest/easiest driving route to Bellagio

      Bellagio Oct 2, 2015 at 3:05 PM

      We'll arrive at Malpensa airport early in the morning and expect to be somewhat tired. What is the safest/easiest route to drive to Bellagio? We will have a small car and aren't opposed to taking a ferry over if needed. We just want to avoid a very stressful drive. I've done a lot of research on this and have found conflicting information. When you provide an answer can you explain why one route would be better than the others? We've pretty much ruled out the train bus/bus as options.Thank you so much for your assistance.

      Tirano day trip

      Tirano Sep 25, 2015 at 2:51 PM

      Taking the Bernina Express to Tirano, intend to only do a day trip.

      I can't find sufficient information on leave luggage at the station - the official website said there is no lockers but there is a leave luggage counter. Have anyone used this before - and how does it work? Charges by pieces / hours?

      Is a couple of hours enough for a quick sightseeing of Tirano? If in case we couldn't find a leave luggage facility, is it convenient to lug this around from station to the town and back?

      Tips / advise appreciated. Thanks!

      I'm arriving with the ferry in Savona from Corsika early in the morning (7.15 am), and I have a flight from Milan Malpensa airport at 15.15 pm. Does anybody knows, if the bus station is close to the port and what is the schedule to the bus from Savona to Milan,is it regular,which is the earliest, how much time do I need to reach Milan etc.
      And when I arrive in Milan can I take the direct shuttle to the airport from the same bus station or I have to go otherwise? My time is very limited and I'm afraid not to miss my flight cause I don't know Italy at all... Thank you.
