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

      Milan Dec 3, 2016 at 10:39 AM


      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'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

      Hi All,

      I am hoping for a recommendation for a tour company to book with to take a tour of the Colosseum(inc underground and third ring)?

      It seems the recommended "official" ticket website sells tickets online which are only valid until the 31st December- we would like to book for the 9th Jan.

      Any suggestions??

      Thanks in Advance

    • Sicily Adventure

      Sicilia Nov 27, 2016 at 11:31 AM

      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.

      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.

    • From Frankfurt, Germany to L'Aquila in Abruzzo

      by stellamia Online Now Oct 1, 2008 at 4:05 AM

      I hope I can get some answers on this "challenging" plan I have: Next spring my parents (in their 60's) would like to go by car from Frankfurt/Main in Germany to L'Aquila in the Abruzzi, Italy.
      I recommended to them to make two stops on this stretch. Who can tell me, what the first stop in Italy after the Brennero could be? A nice hotel (double room about 100 Euro), things to do the next day, then the second hotel around Ferrara, for example, with another stay, things do do or see until they start to get to their final destination L'Aquila. They love italian original food, their wines, the culture.
      I'm excited to read your tips!
      Regards, stellamaria
