I will get to Malpensa Airport on January 13th 2008 and I am looking for a way of transportation directly from Malpensa to Sion. I cheked on the internet the trains schedule, but it seems a little bit complicated. Can anyone help my with this?
Hello VT members and friends,
VT member yumyum (CH) and me (HORSCHECK, D) are exploring the Swiss Canton du Valais next week (12.08.-19.08.).
Among other things we are planning a little VT meeting in wonderful Sion with the most famous VT member from that region (Tripack).
At this stage the schedule for the meeting is defined like this:
DATE AND TIME:
15.08.2007 - 16:00 h
Giorgio cafe at the Rempart Place (300m from Hôtel Elite)
After exchangig some travel stories including the latest VT gossip, a little walk around the town and a fabulous dinner, we might head of to the "Sion in Lights" event which starts around 22:15 h.
[ALL DATA IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE]
There are already rumours that another famous VT member from the US is in the region at almost the same time. So it would be great if we could meet all together.
Any other member who is interested to come please bookmark this thraed as all changes to the plan will be posted here.
What is the best time of year to travel to Sion? Also--what is the best method for arrival--i.e. plane or train, etc?
I am on the Euro rail website and I can't get the time of the trains from Sion to Venice. I know you have to break down your trip to get it, but I am struggling.
If anyone knows what routes or the break downs, please let me know!
Visiting Valais 19th Aug. and want to visit an old friend who lives in cugnasco, a little worried about driving over the Simplon Pass as I'm not used to driving over mountain roads and also not used to driving on the left. Is it a dangerous route and did I see a train route that brings cars some of the way, also would that be very expensive. A little worried. Would appriciate honest opinions.
