      Is anyone planning on being in Milan, Italy May 29 - June 11. It is my first time to Italy and I'm looking for someone fun who may be interested in exploring the city together? I'm up for day trips to other cities as well. I'm staying in the Porta Venezia/Lombardy area. Thanks!

    • Parking of car in small towns near the Lake

      Lago di Garda May 19, 2015 at 6:03 AM

      Hi, we are planning the road trip around the lake in June this year. I hear that the traffic tends to be heavy. Is there a way to park a car on free public parking somewhere, even remotely? Generally, what are the suggestions of travelers for car parking in towns such as Sirmione, Lasize, Desenzano, Riva, Salo...?
      Thanks for all the tips!

      i just received a call that my May 15 flight from MXP to Naples has been canceled and i have been rebooked on a flight out of LIN. we have a nonrefundable room near MXP. the flight was scheduled for 7:00. there is a hotel shuttle to MXP. then i see that there is a shuttle from MXP to LIN. it takes aobut 90 minutes. i'm not sure if the transfer is doable. any ideas? about 55 miles from hotel to LIN so a taxi would be very expensive. and it thought that all was set for this trip but things are never written in stone in travel.

      Car or taxi service available from Milan airport to Varenna? Approximate cost, and contact information would be appreciated. Or would train into Milan Centrale, then north to Varenna be better. 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

      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 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.

      Does anybody know some details about weather in Varenna. I should stay there for 10 days from 18-28 July 2006. I couldn't find at any site probably because Varenna is too small place. The closest place I found weather details for is Como. Is it OK? Does it matches weather in Varenna?
