    • Lombardy travel pass on a regional train to Venice

      Brescia Mar 17, 2015 at 11:56 PM

      Dear all!
      Does Lombardy travel pass cover the cost of a regional train (Regionale 2707 for example) to Venezia and backwards?
      The train is regional but Venezia is out of Lombardy, that's why I am asking.
      Thank you very much in advance for the information.

    • Lake Maggiore on the last week of October 2015

      Lombardy Mar 23, 2015 at 10:49 PM


      I'm planning to visit Lake Maggiore and its surrounding on the 22-26 Oct this year. I understand it is nearing winter.

      Are tourism affected by the weather there ? Such as, ferries no longer running, or shops closed, and all that we could see are the sceneries without being able to take any ferry ride out to the other areas.

      Additionally, does any knows whether the Lake Maggiore Express be operating in that period of the year.
      I've checked on the website, and the schedules are til June. We would like to see the picturesque scenery.

      Any help is much appreciated.

      I'm trying to get from Malpensa airport to Treviglio and have seen the name of a station Milano PGP(Passante) and then just Milano PG.

      Milan - Geneva Eurocity after June 13

      Milan Feb 28, 2015 at 8:51 AM

      If one is to believe the timetables (SBB and Trenitalia, as well as DB), there will be no Eurocity service between Milan and Geneva, or even to Brig, after June 13. Since I also notice there are apparently no Freccia trains scheduled after that date, I was wondering if there was some sort of mid-year timetable change. Since I can find no mention of one, even from the Man in Seat 61, does anyone have any further information on when the new timetables might be available? Thanks.

    • Where to stay?

      by AnneandMissi Online Now Apr 9, 2014 at 12:17 AM

      Initially looked at Como. Having second thoughts. We have 4 nights (minus jet lag only 3 days to explore.) We are considering Varenna.
      We would be catching a train from Malpensa directly to Como/Varenna after a long haul from Australia. What are the pros/cons of choosing Varenna?
      A major "thing to do is" the Berlina Express for one day.
      Advice welcomed. Any advice.

    • Volterra not Varenna

      by dargo Online Now Nov 10, 2013 at 8:33 PM

      Sorry my earlier question was wrong !! We are travelling from Monte Carlo to Volterra (and not to Varenna).
      We would catch the train from Monte Carlo and then rent a car from a town near volterra (I understand there is no train station there).

      I must say, that I absolutely loved Varenna and we stayed in the Hotel du Lac which was in a great location and we had a room with a most maginifcent view.

      Anyway, this time we are off to Volterra !!

      thank you

      by dargo Online Now Nov 10, 2013 at 8:19 PM

      We will be travelling from Monte Carlo to Varenna (staying there about 10 days). Rather than renting a car in Monte Carlo and dropping it off in Milan, I thought to catch a train to a town near Varenna and then rent a car. We would plan to arrive in Varenna late in the day. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

      I didn't receive a printed ticket in the mail that I now see I should have...since my other tickets just required using the PNR # to get the printed ticket for validation I didn't realize this one should have come in the mail before we lest the states. I have a call into Italiarail but won't reach them until after 3 Italy time and we leave Monday 7:30 train to Milan to connect to Venice I wonder if we should just buy new!

    • Milan-Varenna transportation

      by Erika77 Online Now Sep 1, 2009 at 8:29 AM

      Hello and help, prego!

      My husband and I will be arriving in Milan Thursday evening, planning to spend a long weekend in Varenna. Our flight will arrive in Milan well before the last bus leaves and a few minutes before the last train departs for Varenna.

      We've got a B&B already booked for the night at Lake Como and really don't want to have to spend the night in Milan.

      How much would a taxi cost to take us to Menaggio? Are there any other ways we might be able to get there?

      Thank you very much for your time and response.

    • recommended restuarant in Varenna

      by MimiPawPaw Online Now Dec 27, 2007 at 11:01 AM

      We will arrive in Varenna on Saturday, March 22, 2008, and would like recommendations of good, reasonably priced restuarants or bistros or cafes in the vicinity of the Duomo. We would like to walk to the restuarant and to have a place we could call "home" for the 4 days, 3 nights we are there. We enjoy very much having a familiar place to eat while we are on trips.

      We enjoy healthy dishes made with fresh vegetables and local ingredients. The simplier the better. We would like to have a selection of main courses in the 5-10 euro range, if possible.

      We really appreciate any suggestions.

      Also, we would like to locate a grocer.

      Thank you very much.
