      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

      Airport Shuttle from Bergamo Airport

      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.

    • Public Transportation in La Maddalena to beaches

      Sardegna Jul 30, 2016 at 5:46 AM

      Hi there,

      I am a little bit struggling with my Sardinia itinerary in August. I decide to stay at La Maddalena for 5 days, but I have a few questions about the public transportation and how to access to the beaches.

      1) Is it possible to walk to Bassa Trinita from Spiaggia Monti dell'Arena?
      2) I really would like to visit Cala Serena, Testa del Polpo, and Spiaggia Del Relitto, but I have found out that there are no buses to these places. I am thinking about a daily bike rental. Is the route difficult to bike from La Maddalena?
      3) Is there a small chance for me to get to Spiaggia La Licciola from Santa Teresa Gallera?

      I do hope someone can help me with my Sardinia trip and make my visit unforgettable.

      Thank you in advanced.

    • Itinery help - 3 weeks and 2 small kids

      Sardegna Mar 2, 2016 at 2:33 PM

      Hi guys,

      I'm struggling with our itinery. We've got just over 3 weeks for Sardinia, initially to have 1 week in Corsica and 2 in Sardinia, but I found out that this doesn't really work. Better is to stay only in Sardinia. As we've got 2 small kids (2 and 4 yrs) and my GF wants to get her Padi, we'll only stick to Sardinia.

      Due to the kids, we only want to stay in accomodations that allow the kids to sleep in a separate room, such as 2-room apartments or so. To organize this last-minute (and have flexibility) won't work as I've understood, unless we will accept expensive and not as nice hotels.

      We will have a rental car. Could you please recommed some good places (location and beauty) to use as hubs, as we only want to move hotels every 5 days or so? Some great family-friendly accomodation-highlights are of course more than welcome as well (B&B, house, apartment). We'll probably stay for diving in the North-West area.

      I realize this is a rather broad question, but hopefully we can get some specific tips beyond what our 2 guidebooks have been able to tell us, and possibly other travellers with kids or with a long travel-time can benefit from this too.

      Thanks guys!!

      Best regards, Robin.
