      Getting to Naples airport

      Naples Feb 10, 2017 at 2:07 PM

      I just realized that our flight leaving Naples is at 6:45am. I've booked a hotel that's a 12 minute drive from the airport, but we won't be driving. How's the cab situation during that time of the day? We will be staying at the B&B Milionaria. Thanks!

      Wife n I are flying Tuesday morning to begamo, we've booked a rental car as we want to drive to the lakes, my question is though , is it more practical to leave the car at the airport car park in the rental park then get a bus into begamo or would it be far cheaper to drive into town n pay the parking for a few hours ?

      Where do you recommend us to park to athe least go on the funicular?

      Hi, could someone help out with finding the easiest and shortest way to travel with public transport from Orio al Serio bergamo airport to Preschiera del garda. We will arrive at the airport at about 17.00 on the last day of December. On the google map site I found it will take 13 hours. That's incredible !!! We won't see the fireworks on the lake if the journey is that long.

    • Io viaggio in Lombardia ticket from Bergamo Orio Al Serio airport

      by clivevp Online Now Mar 9, 2014 at 7:02 AM

      We will be arriving at Bergamo airport in a few weeks and wish to buy two of the 7 day IVOL tickets for €41.10 each.

      Please can anyone tell me:

      1. Can the tickets be bought at the airport?
      I know I can get them in Bergamo at the SAB offices or the train station but wondered if they could be obtained at the airport tourist information desk or automated ticket machines.

      2. Are the tickets valid for the #1 bus from the Airport into Bergamo?
      I know the tickets are not valid for the airport to Milan shuttle buses. I also know the tickets are not valid for the Malpensa train to Malpensa airport but cannot find any exclusions relating to Bergamo urban buses.

      3. If I manage to get the IVOL tickets at the airport then do I need to buy a €2.10 ticket for a large suitcase when using the #1 bus into Bergamo?
      This would be the case if I were buying €2.10 timed tickets but is included when purchasing ATB 24 of 72 hour tickets. I cannot find any info regarding the situation with the IVOL ticket.

    • Wedding around Lake Iseo or Bergamo

      by booju Online Now Nov 29, 2013 at 2:06 AM

      Hi, my fiance and I want to get married around Lake Iseo in May 2015. We already know where we want to stay in Bergamo as we visited a couple of years ago and love the place so I just need to sort out a venue for the wedding and a photographer. I have emailed the Town Halls in Sarnico, Lovere and Iseo to ask how I would arrange a civil wedding but no-one has replied. I wonder if there is anyone local who knows how I might sort this out? If I can't get married around Iseo then I would like to get married in Bergamo so if anyone has any information at all I'd be grateful. We preferably want to arrange it all ourselves to save money on a wedding planner but all suggestions are welcome. If anyone could tell me prices for local photographers I would be grateful.

      Many thanks
