can 60 years olds get free entry to museum on a Sunday?
Is it somehow possible to ski to Cortina from Selva and back before the lifts close? I hear the taxi ride is pretty expensive!! is that the only option?
I'm planning to visit Selva in the second half of January and any tips with regards to hotels, bars, restaurants will be highly appreciated. I'd like to be based near the ciampioni lift to have better access to the slopes and Hotel Savoy, Hotel Linder and Hotel Laurin seem to be good choices?
Also I'd like to ski in Cortina, is it possible to do a day tip and are there private transfers from Selva or scheduled buses for that matter? Thanks a bunch.
Hi. We are driving from Verona to Riva Del Garda, where we will stay for two nights.
We have a 3 months old baby, so we can't drive too far, or hike for too long, but would still like to enjoy some of the beautiful nature around this area.
We thought of seeing places around the lake on the first day, driving up to Riva, and the next day maybe go up to Trento and hike around there.
I am travelling from Mezzocorona to Verona on Sunday 8 September early in the morning. Does anyone know the distance between the station on the line from Male to Mezzocorona and the mainline station? Also, if there is a self-service ticket machine or if the ticket office will be open.
Hi, I am thinking of doing a summer study abroad in Trento for two months next summer. I'm a twenty year old girl and I'd be taking some neuroscience courses. As much as i take my studies seriously, I am veryyy big on partying, especially while in Europe for the summer! Is there any real nightlife going on in Trento? If so, if you have any places to suggest it would be helpful. Also, if their nightlife is not the main attraction, are there nearbye towns or cities where I can go to easily for fun? thanks :)
We plan to be in Bolzano for 5-6 hours, what should we do while there
We will be travelling to Bressanone (Brixen) and then Vipiteno with 2 teenagers and a toddler. I would love to find a very easy and short walk to a waterfall. I would be willing to go anywhere in Alto Adige if it is worth it. Any thoughts?
We are coming to Lake Garda at the beginning of July from Australia. We have a 3 & 1/2 year old & a 9 month old baby. My partner is sailing in a regatta there & we have about 4 days free to sightsee. Are there any great places that are family friendly & also exciting for a 3 year old?
Where is Mass said and at what times in Bolzano July 6th?
My wife and I will be in Florence in early September and would like to travel to Ortisei where we swill pend a week. What is a suggested or preferred mode of travel to Ortisei (Bus or train?) from Florence and what would be the routing? Thank you for your help.
is there a connection from the train station to the airport? we are picking up a car at the airport, but arriving in Bolzano by train. Thanks
I will be visiting from the USA and will fly into Milan. Can I get from Milan to Revo without renting a car? If so please advise.
My husband and I plan to start our 12 day hike from this location. Can anyone tell me how to get from Verona airport to here using public transportation?
Does anyone know the name of the bus company that leaves from Trento and goes to Carisolo? I am trying to coordinate with train that originates in Rome. Looking for a website or place where info is available.
Will I be able to buy an italian SIM card for internet in Bolzano? Or it is possible only in big cities? Where should I look for it?
Hi - My partner booked a vacation in Hotel Le Blanc, Vason (near Trento). We will have car to drive around for a week. Please share with us any recommendations for all the best places (or should we say - the most beautiful places...) around. We heard about Lago di Tovel. We know there are many other beautiful places. We only know Val Gardena area. Heard about Parco naturale di Adamello-Brenta. what are the "must see" places in it? Any recommendations for day trips (by car) or for day hikes (preferably those that combine uphill cable-car/lift and walk on top of the mountain or downhill...)are most welcome! Thanks, Ana.

Is it possible catch a bus that has the word scholastic on the timetable. I need to go from croce d`aune to Feltre 15.15 in September. Is this just a school bus for children or can the general public use this service. Thank you
I'll be staying in Toblach/Dobbiaco for 3 days and four nights at the end of May and would like to explore some of the Dolomite region to do some moderate hiking (possibly stay over night in a mountain hut) and see Lago de Braies.
First of can anybody give me an idea of what the weather will be like at that time in the mountains? I imagine snow is still possible so I would need warm clothing to hike and walk?
Second, for hiking: I am not experienced but am in good shape and relatively young, so looking for moderate to moderately strenuous hikes-nothing too difficult or life threating. I've heard of some vie ferrata hikes which sound really fun and a good combination of light danger/excitement and safety-do you need equipment for these or can I just find one and go to it?
As for locations I am looking at hiking to Tre Crime/Drei Zinnen and/or locations around Cortina (any recommendations?). I might be interested in staying in a mountain hut, but am not sure how reservations work or if I even need them, or can walk in and crash, etc. Could someone fill me in on how all of that works--I was hoping I can just go on my hike and crash at a mountain hut if I want to, but maybe that isn't how people do it? Also, Can anyone recommend a good hike route (where to start and go etc.) to Tre Crime coming from Dobbiaco/Toblach? Is there public transport I can take to cut down on some of the walking to get there?
I will not have a car and am relying solely on public transport to get me back and forth to areas, so I am wondering what that will be like in late May--I imagine my options will be limited since Summer season hasn't kicked in? Are there any cable cars/buses I will be able to take to summits to get up to into the sky quickly, or do you think I'll have to walk to everything during that time?
Lastly, I will be by myself. Should I be concerned about wildlife or other safety hazards while on hikes in the Dolomites (besides the obvious ones...like I said I don't plan on taking any strenuous or dangerous hikes on my own)?
Need information about train/bus transport to Bolzano (from Verona/Padua) and advice re cheap accommodation in the general area of Bolzano and surrounds. We want to make it a base for 2-4 days to use local buses to visit nearby villages. My wife speaks Italian but has mobility issues, so we need a ground floor or accommodation with a lift. Would like information about local villages to see.
Can someone tell me about the dog sledding here. I read that there is a place in the area, but no information.
We will be in Bolzano for 4 days in early June and plan a day trip to Val Gardena – only the following cable cars are working in early June:
• Col Raiser (St Christina)
• Rasciesa – Raschötz (Ortisei)
• Alpe di Siusi-Seiser Alm(Ortisei)
Which of this offer most scenic views of the Sella Group and Sassulongo?
I understand that all cable cars in Selva will be closed till late June. Is there any particular place in Selva which will offer good views of the above mountains?
Hi, just wondering how to get to this place. know i have to train and get to Bolzano but from there, i have to take a bus i was told.
1)Does anyone know of website of bus schedules?

We are not driving but training and busing. looking around for self-catering apartment to chill out and do slow and not so challenging walks.
Any suggestions of where i can go besides this place. was in seefeld last year and loved it.dont mind going back there again. only problem is my companions want a change of venue.

I am planning to travel to Trentino Alto Adige in April 2012 (5th - 8th). We will be in a hotel in Terlago and plan to do some day trips maybe to Innsbruck and Lago the Garda and other closeby locations. What weather should we expect at that time of the year? I am coming from a totally diffent climate (Malta) so am not very used to snow etc so would like to be well prepared beforehand. We intend to rent a car... Would snow chains be required?
Hi everybody! Is public transport from Bolzano aitport to Val Gardena available after 11 p.m.? Could you please advice accommodation for skiers within walking distance to a swimming pool? An apartment, a hut or BB would be nice. Have a nice day!
We are planning to visist Selva in april 2012 and I am trying to calculate how much we will spend. Can you give me a normal price for a dinner in the evening.
For example the price for a regular Pizza dinner? And the price for a regular pasta bolognese meal?
We are thinking of book halfboard but I would like to have something to compare price with.
we will be staying in Castelrotto and are going to do an overnight side trip to Venice. We would prefer to take the train from Bolzano to Venice. Does anyone know if there is anywhere close to the station where we could park our car overnight? Have thought about taking the bus from Castelrotto, but our train leaves too early.
We will be arriving in Ortisei September 21st and starting our hike on the 22nd. My question is: is the Seceda cable car open on that date??
We are planning a visit to the area in mid-May of next year. Kastelruth (Castelrotto) appears to be a good place to stay and venture out for day trips. Our main concerns are what the weather will be like at that time of year, will there be a good selection of restaurants open to eat in, will the cable lifts be running for accessing higher areas to hike, and will wildflowers be starting to bloom in the lower elevations. We will be traveling by car. Any planning assistance will be appreciated.
