      Has any used one of the private companies that offer pick up service at the airport with drop off at the hotel? We are looking at city airport taxi, a company that seems to contract with local companies and wondered if anyone had experience with them or can recommend a different company.

    • Where to stay?

      Varenna 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.

    • MXP to Rail station - Timing? Reservations?

      Milan Mar 26, 2014 at 10:32 PM

      Is there any advantage / disadvantage to making train reservations?

      Our flight from JFK is scheduled to arrive on a Friday before 7:00am. Our plan is to take the Express Train to Centralle station for the 2.5 hour trip to Venice. It would SEEM that the 9:35am departure from Milano would be reasonable goal, no?

      If we get to the station early, would we be able to swap our tickets for an earlier departure?
      In the more likely scenario, if our flight is delayed - and we miss the 9:35am departure, are our tickets worthless, or able to be used - without penalty on a later departure?

    • Need 3 simple bicycles for getting around in Varese Tuesday, Sept 3 through Sunday, Sept 7

      by susanhooten Online Now Jun 23, 2013 at 12:37 PM

      We would like to find a reasonable rental rate for keeping 3 bikes continuously. We could pick them up the evening of Mon., Sept. 2 (we will arrive from Milan early that evening, probably on the train) and return them the evening of Sunday, Sept . 8. We will be in Varese for the World Masters Rowing events and just need some quick, easy transportation from our B&B to the Lake each day, and for little trips to the grocery store, etc.
      We would be glad to pay locals for use of their own bikes, sort of an airbnb for bicycles?!
      We can bring our own bike locks and helmets, pumps and repair supplies, if necessary.

      I'm going to Varese in October, for a week. Actually, It's a studying-program I will attend, but we will have some sparetime, and now I'm searching for "the do's and don'ts in Varese". How about the sights? What should I know about Italian culture and traditions (I will live in a host family, and I know only a few phrases in Italian)? Any restaurants that you would recommend (preferably Italian cuisine)?

      Grazie molto!

      We're staying at Baveno and would like to drive to Lake Lugano avoiding Switzerland [simple because we don't want to pay the annual road tax, which is expensive]. Are there any boats from the Italian side of Lake Lugano which we could take a trip on - website is a bit inconclusive.

      Any ideas on routes etc greatly appreciated

      Hotel or B&B in Saronno?

      by greencargirl Online Now Mar 23, 2007 at 3:04 PM


      We are seeking accomodation in Saronno near the express train station, and there are a few places that we've found on the internet, but not a single one of them has any traveler-reviews on VT or tripadvisor (or anywhere else that I've discovered). So we have no idea if they are clean, if the beds are comfortable, etc.

      Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of the places in Saronno? We see there is a Villa Sogno (B&B), Hotel Cyrano, Hotel Mercurio, Albergo Motel Pioppeto, Albergo Principe, and a few others.

      If we end up staying in Saronno, I will have to add a VT travel page for it (there are none!). Thanks,

      We are thinking of spending a last night at the First Hotel near Malpensa airport. It looks decent on the web site and they have transportation to pick up and drop off for flights.
      Question is what I have read is that the hotel food is not good. Does anyone know of a decent restaurant to walk to from this hotel that is kind of local.
