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

      Milan 17 hours ago


      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

      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!

      Perugia: dining and stay

      by ElenaKKKK Online Now Jan 25, 2012 at 10:46 AM

      Hi) Me and my school friend plan to spend 5 days in Perugia 25- 29th of May on a way to Bergamo Euromeet. As a part of Euromeet we plan to visit Pallio della balestra in Gubbio on 27th, in addition- Assisi, Spello and, may be, Orvieto. So I have some questions:
      1. Could anybody recommend me nice place to dine: something with live music, informal and vivid atmosphere: we aren't interested in night life, just pleasant place to spend evening without risky adventures:-)
      2. As I've read here, on VT, that Monday is the day of "closed doors" in Italy, is it worth to visit Assisi on Monday, or some of sights will be closed and we should better go somethere else? (we won't hire a car and will travel by public transport).
      3. On the page of Perugia here there is a "Con" tip that Perugia is unsafe place with a lot of criminality. We stay a bit far from the centre: in Etruscan Chocotel, is it safe to walk at evenings (for example going to the hotel from the dinner at restaurant in old town) for 2 mid-aged ladies? Or there are special unsafe places, which aren't recommended to visit?
      Thank you in advance, regards, Elena

      Trains from Rome Termini to Perugia or Assisi

      by Glen30 Online Now Sep 5, 2009 at 3:18 PM


      I have read a few articles that you need to change trains at Foligno on the way to either Assisi or Perugia. However, having checked the schedules on, it seems there are direct trains from Rome to these 2 cities without transferring. Is that true?

      For instance:

      If I were to take the train departing Rome termini at 11.57am, I don't need to transfer elsewhere?

      Can someone let me know what fare 39/AS means? I don't really understand. Is this the fare to go with if I were to buy a ticket online?

      My wife and I are planning a trip to Perugia for two weeks either in October or November. I have commitments in October that I could cancel but that would be inconvenient. But, am concerned that if I go in November it would be too cold for walking about the city comfortably and I'd miss the fall colors in the countryside. Would appreciate hearing about what the climate and atmosphere in town is like from people who've been there during October and November.
