      Using a public transport to get from Milan center to 'Museo Storico Alfa Romeo' in Arese.

      Milan Dec 3, 2016 at 10:39 AM

      Hello.

      On Dec. 13-15d. I'm planning to visit Milan. One of the main museums I'd like to visit is Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese region. According to giromilano.atm.it's journey planner, I should take the M1 metro and then at the nearby Rho rail station, I should catch a 561 line bus and then get off at the Via Aldo Moro street, with a few hundred metres left to reach my destination.

      My question is: if I buy a 2-day ATM ticket (which cost 8.25 €), does it still mean it's valid around Arese area or is it only around Milan center (in other words: will I have to buy additional bus tickets to get there)?

      Thanks in advance

      Have today booked a holiday in Taormina to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We have been to Italy plenty of times so know the mainland reasonably well but have never been to Sicily. We are both fit and active and prefer to use public transport rather than join organised groups. During our holiday (10 days ) what is considered to be a must see/do to get the most out of our time spent in Sicily.

      Airport Shuttle from Bergamo Airport

      Milan Nov 14, 2016 at 1:02 AM

      We will be arriving in to Orio al Serio Airport and would like to take the airport shuttle in to Milan. I would like to book the tickets online but the website (Orio Shuttle) is asking for a time of departure. If our flight is delayed and we miss this time slot, does anyone know if we would be allowed on a later shuttle? If we wait until we land to buy a ticket, is it too risky that we may not get a seat?

      Thanks in advance.

      Italy - Itinerary help

      Naples Nov 9, 2016 at 5:41 AM

      I have planned a 4 day trip to Naples and around and following is high level itinerary

      Day 1: Reach Naples in night from London and stay here
      Day 2: Visit Naples and reach Sorrento in night and stay
      Day 3: Visit Positano, Amalfi and Ravello and return back to Sorrento for stay
      Day 4: Visit Pompei and then return to Naples to fly back

      Please let know if this looks good. Day 2 - what are the key things to visit in Naples?
      We avoid public transportation and rent car mostly for convenience and cost, but wanted to take bus and train in this case considering the narrow mountain routes and traffic issues - any suggestions?
      I will travel with my wife and 2 daughters (aged 11 and 7) during 3 week of December. Any other tips and comments also welcome!

      may 1 and train travel to and from civitavecchia

      Rome Dec 4, 2016 at 11:28 AM

      will be in port in civitavecchia may 1. wanting to get to rome to tour on our own using the rick steves "heart of rome walk" as a guide. the best and least expensive option is for us to take the train in to rome and then use the metro and walking as a way to accomplish just a bit of sight seeing. my question: is using the train/ metro a viable option on this holiday day or should we spend way more money and use the ship's transport in to rome (which guarantees we will arrive back at the ship for departure). we will be in port for about 10 hrs and i realize it takes an hour or more to get in to the city from civitavecchia. opinions? we know most all the big tourist spots are closed this day.

      Best Place to stay for 2-3 days

      by Daytripper58 Online Now May 14, 2016 at 4:53 PM

      I am planning a trip to Montemagno, Italy - Monferrati Hills Area for family research. My family originated from this area and later moved to the US. I want to go visit the land of my ancestors and get a good feel of the area. I have no idea where to stay as a base location and I don’t know anything about the area as all of the old family has passed away. Where to stay? What to do? Local guides? Where to eat?

      Any help is appreciated. Help me to understand my home land.

      Shopping in Asti

      by bhrousemd Online Now Jul 8, 2013 at 3:17 AM

      I'm headed to Asti for the Palio this fall. Right now, I am planning on traveling light, as I find it is more fun to "shop" for some clothes during my trip (that not being the sole purpose!). I am wondering if there are any recommendations for clothing stores in the city, or if there are any outlets nearby. Thanks in advance!

      I'm hoping to find information about high schools in Asti, Italy. My daughter, Megan High, has planned for a year to be a foreign exchange student in Italy. We chose the program, Two Worlds United, and they have been keeping us updated since February about the long process of finding a host family, visa, etc.. All of her information should have been completed by June 1, 2006.

      We just found out that she will be living in Asti, Italy, but when I ask for phone numbers for the school and host family, I'm told that they don't have that information. This is starting to look like a scam and I just need a phone number for the high schools in Asti, Italy.

      Now that there is doubt in my mind about this company, if they do actually pull this off and Megan does get to spend her senior year of high school in Asti, I will have to travel there when she goes, just to make sure she does have a family to live with and that she is alright.

      I'll need a place to stay for a week that is reasonably priced. They haven't even applied for her visa but keep saying that everything is alright. I've learned that they have an F rating with the Better Bussiness Bureau, so it just doesn't look promising. I've paid the money and if they actually do come through, I'll be flying with her to make sure she is safe.

      Any ideas on who I could contact to see if Two Worlds United has even attempted to get Megan enrolled in a high school in Asti, Italy would very much be appreciated.

      Sincerely,
