      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

      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?

      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.

      My partner and I are planning to arranged to do the first 5 days of Alta Via 2 in the Dolomites. We hike quite a bit but is always just for 1 or 2 days at a time. We are trying to get a better idea of the trail to make sure it is not beyond our capabilities. Our days, along the AV2, are listed below:

      Questions:
      1. Can someone comment on what kind of equipment we need and what kind of equiptment is helpful (hiking poles vs. ferratas kits)l. We want to avoid via ferratas.

      2. On day 5/6 is there a good place to finish the hike and get back into town. We want to make our way back to Milan .

      Thanks!

      Giro dei Cinque Laghi (In July)

      Madonna di Campiglio Jul 5, 2016 at 2:44 PM

      I have heard about this trail route on-line, and seen some videos, however I cannot find comments regarding this. We are interested in spending a day trekking during our stay in Madonna di Campiglio and this trail route seems to be ideal with 13.6km. Do we need any particular equipment for the trail, and does it involve any climbing?   Would a guide be necessary? Or should a GPS with the trail be enough?  We will be a group of 4 friends (early 20s), most of which are active.

    • Hiking around Pale di San Martino

      Dolomiti Feb 2, 2016 at 11:33 AM

      Hi - We're planning a few days' hike in the Dolomites, in Pale di San Martino, and I did help planning it.... I did a lovely hike about 20 years ago - but I can't remember the details... I know at least a par of it was part of the Alte Via 2. I started with the cable car from San Martino to Rosetta hut, then walked about 3 hours to another hut, stayed the night there, and continued next day to another hut, from there came down and found my way back to San Martino... I'm almost sure the first hut was Pradidali, but I have no idea which was the second one... I would like to do something similar this year - in July - but need more info about trails and huts. Any suggestion for a trek that starts with this cable car, then has about 3-4 hours of walking to the next hut where we can spend the night, and from which we can continue to another trail of 3-4 hours to another hut - from which we can walk back to San Martino - will be very much appreciated. Another option is to stay 2 nights in the same mountain hut - and doing a day walk in between.

      So I need advice on -

      Option A: San Martino - cable car - Rosetta - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 2 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep downhill) , back to - San Martino

      Option B: San Martino - cable car - Rosetta - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep uphill) to - Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep) back to Rifugio 1 - trail for a 3-4 hours walk (preferably not too steep downhill) , back to - San Martino Thanks a lot in advance, Ana.

I worry that he won't be able to hire a guide and therefore bike alone on trails he knows nothing about in a country where he knows no one.

    • Where to go after trek in Dolomites

      Dolomiti Sep 21, 2014 at 9:57 AM

      I am planning a trip to Italy for September 2015 for my husband and myself. We plan to fly to Venice, spend 2 or 3 days there, then trek in the Dolomites for 7 days. After the trek we would like to go somewhere else in Italy for 3 or 4 days, but we are not sure where would be a good choice that would be relatively convenient to get to from the Dolomites. We probably will want to relax after the trek, maybe visit a museum and some ruins or historical buildings. We enjoy old European towns, good food and beautiful views. While we like the ocean, I don't think we want to go to a beach resort on this trip. I'm also inclined to save Rome for another trip, when we can devote more time to it. I think I would prefer not to rent a car, but would consider it if necessary. I welcome all suggestions--this will be our first trip to Italy. Thank you in advance for your help!
