      Milan Study

      Milan Jun 28, 2016 at 10:25 PM

      My daughter and 2 friends arrive at Malpensa on 11th July afternoon. They are there till 23rd July for a summer course at NABA university (downtown of Navigli area). They are staying near the institute itself.


      1. How do they get to that area from the Malpensa airport?

      2. How do they travel around Milan? What is the best process to sight see around Milan, and what all to see? They will be staying near the Central Station on night of 23rd (basically spend the whole day of 23rd roaming around Milan City).

      3. How to travel to and from Linate airport and NABA? For the 3, will a Taxi be more cost effective?

      Thanks in advance friends.

      Around Milan

      Milan Jul 13, 2016 at 3:04 AM

      My daughter and 2 friends are in Milan for a study programme. On 24th July Sunday morning they leave by train for Venice from where they fly back home on 25th evening. They are going to Rome for this weekend of 16/17 July.

      Now where can they take a full day tour on 23rd July, as they might be free from early morning, and may have already roamed around Milan enough by then? They are staying at a hotel near Milan Central for the 23rd Night.

      Thanks in advance friends.

    • Need 3 simple bicycles for getting around in Varese Tuesday, Sept 3 through Sunday, Sept 7

      by susanhooten Online Now Jun 23, 2013 at 12:37 PM

      We would like to find a reasonable rental rate for keeping 3 bikes continuously. We could pick them up the evening of Mon., Sept. 2 (we will arrive from Milan early that evening, probably on the train) and return them the evening of Sunday, Sept . 8. We will be in Varese for the World Masters Rowing events and just need some quick, easy transportation from our B&B to the Lake each day, and for little trips to the grocery store, etc.
      We would be glad to pay locals for use of their own bikes, sort of an airbnb for bicycles?!
      We can bring our own bike locks and helmets, pumps and repair supplies, if necessary.

      I'm going to Varese in October, for a week. Actually, It's a studying-program I will attend, but we will have some sparetime, and now I'm searching for "the do's and don'ts in Varese". How about the sights? What should I know about Italian culture and traditions (I will live in a host family, and I know only a few phrases in Italian)? Any restaurants that you would recommend (preferably Italian cuisine)?

      Grazie molto!

Please help I take size 42 european sizes.

      good food & nice visits

      by pieterjongbloed Online Now Apr 13, 2009 at 3:56 AM

      We will be staying in Varese from 30 April - 5 May. At present I am planning trips to the lakes and choose restaurants for lunch and dinner. Any tips on beautiful churches, good (classical) music performances, outstandig restaurants or oddball activities would be most appreciated!

      We're staying at Baveno and would like to drive to Lake Lugano avoiding Switzerland [simple because we don't want to pay the annual road tax, which is expensive]. Are there any boats from the Italian side of Lake Lugano which we could take a trip on - website is a bit inconclusive.

      Any ideas on routes etc greatly appreciated

      Hotel or B&B in Saronno?

      by greencargirl Online Now Mar 23, 2007 at 3:04 PM


      We are seeking accomodation in Saronno near the express train station, and there are a few places that we've found on the internet, but not a single one of them has any traveler-reviews on VT or tripadvisor (or anywhere else that I've discovered). So we have no idea if they are clean, if the beds are comfortable, etc.

      Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of the places in Saronno? We see there is a Villa Sogno (B&B), Hotel Cyrano, Hotel Mercurio, Albergo Motel Pioppeto, Albergo Principe, and a few others.

      If we end up staying in Saronno, I will have to add a VT travel page for it (there are none!). Thanks,

    • Varese in December?

      by hharrison Online Now Nov 25, 2006 at 1:31 AM

      Can anyone give me some advice?

      We are visiting Milan in late December and am thinking of spending a few nights in Varese at the Porro Pirelli. We will hire a car and just wondering what the driving conditions will be like? Is heavy snow likely?

      I don't know much about the area, so any advice would be warmly received.

      by genebeans Online Now Jun 29, 2005 at 11:18 AM

      We are thinking of spending a last night at the First Hotel near Malpensa airport. It looks decent on the web site and they have transportation to pick up and drop off for flights.
      Question is what I have read is that the hotel food is not good. Does anyone know of a decent restaurant to walk to from this hotel that is kind of local.
