    • Milan Central Station - baggage

      Milan 4 hours ago

      I was hoping to leave my bags in a locker at Milan central station for the day while I go looking around the city. In view of the large number of refugees in Milan at the moment I realize that lockers at the station may be in short supply. Does anyone know of the situation regarding luggage facilities at the station at present or of anywhere else in Milan that provides luggage storage. Many thanks in advance to those taking the time to reply.

    • Erice by bus

      Sicilia Oct 2, 2015 at 6:25 PM

      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. Is this correct,or does a bus also go up to the town? Thanks yet again, this has been the most challenging trip planning that I have ever experienced, but this website has been amazing!

    • 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!

      Sabbadini & Ziraldo family from Udine & Friuli

      by ambodoira Online Now May 17, 2011 at 4:59 PM


      Both my maternal grandmother and grandfather are from Udine. Louis (Luigi) Sabbadini was born in 1920 in Udine and emigrated to the United States sometime before WWII. A few of his brothers stayed behind in Udine, one of them was named Joseppi. My grandfather's mother was Ada Sabbadini, also from Udine.

      My maternal grandmother was born in the US, but her father and mother, Querico and Valeria Ziraldo, lived in Udine until shortly after WWI, when they emigrated with their firstborn, Leonard, to the United States.

      I'd love to be put in contact with anyone who might be a distant relation. Also, I'm very much interested in learning Friuli. Any ideas how I might go about that, apart from moving to Udine? I'd like to learn the language, then visit in Udine to conduct some historical research.

    • Information on Udine

      by SSSony12 Online Now Nov 9, 2005 at 10:05 PM


      My husbands father and family were from Udine, Italy. I am having trouble finding much information on this area. Is Udine a region or a city, some information I've found make it sound like a region.

      Is Udine on the Austrian border? Also, I found some information stating that the language Friulian is not an Italian dialect, is this correct? If so, what is it considered a mix of Austrian and Italian mixed because of being near the border of Austria? Are there any websites with pictures of Udine and/or surrounding areas?

      Sorry for so many questions, my husbands father passed away a few years ago and all we really knew was that Udine was in Northern Italy and the dialect was Friulian. We are planning to go to Italy within the next couple of years and would like to visit there, can you get by with speaking only english?

      Also if anyone who responds is from Udine the family name we are looking for is Narduzzi.

      Thank you so much for any help.

      My husband and I are visiting friends in Heidelberg in a few weeks and are hoping to travel to Italy for a few days. I would like to visit Udine, as it is where my grandparents were born, but I don't know of any extended family still there, so we don't have any local contacts. Any information anyone has will be really helpful, such as where to stay, etc. Also, I know a little bit of "travel" Italian, but no Friulan, so will it be difficult to communicate while there? Thanks for any input you might have.

      ciao from the Nostalgia

      by zoribanks Online Now May 17, 2005 at 7:00 PM

      Hello, my name is Zoraida Banks and I am from Puerto Rico. I am writting in this post out of nostalgia because my whole island is sad from the death of our dear Tony Croatto, a singer and composer that lived in this island nation for about 30 yrs. He loved the island as soon as he saw it and stay and contributed wonders to the music of Puerto Rico rediscovering it and making us look to our values as a nation. He borned in Udine, in Attima, and during second world war his family moved to Uruguay and Argentine as many Europeans did. So when they were youngsters him and his siblings made a pop group named TNT, his brother Edelweiss Croatto is in Italy producing in the media. But he got to be one of the top in PR when he moved around the 60's, Now from the Nostalgia I write for such a loss and next year I would love to travel to the land that saw him born, eventhough he said that if he was Porto rican from the heart even if he was born in the moon. I would love to go to Attima, the town in Udine that he borned, so please tell me how to get there and what attractions are there to see. thanks to all and viva tony croatto
