I would like to put forth my experience. We forgot to take our camera when alighting at Florence; the train was bound to Naples. We had very little time left before boarding the next train to Pisa and from Pisa, the flight back to London. We ran to the Trenitalia counter at Florence, and clearly told them the details of the location and attributes of the ...

I have been told by a travel agent: If an airline sold you a ticket with a short connection, the airline thinks it's long enough. If you miss the connection it is the airline's problem – they would have to get you on the next available flight. This is of course assuming both flights are part of the same booking.

Yes, you would have to go through a security check since you come from a non-schengen country. 55 minutes might be too little time if the control takes more time than expected but it should be enough since you don't have to check in anything.

Rome2Rio suggests taking the ferry to Pula, and from there a bus to Rijeka. Below is a screenshot from Rome2Rio: The buses are operated by Autotrans. They run approximately every 2-3 hours, and takes 2h20m to get to Rijeka. At the time of writing (Feb. 2016) the price for a one-way ticket is 86 HRK. Below is a sample timetable for buses leaving on the ...

I wouldn't worry about airports, since more or less all the ones I've seen (from the smallest to the huge ones) are pretty similar: you get your bags, you go though customs ("nothing to declare" - if you haven't brought a lot of cash / weapons / drugs with you). I agree that that the easiest way to get to Piazzale Roma is by a shuttle bus. You can find the ...

The best choice (if you want to travel only by boat) would be to travel by ferry to Rabac from Venice, then rent a "taxiboat" to Rijeka. Otherwise you need to travel to Pula and find something like that there. Moneywise I would say that the least expensive way to get to Rijeka is to take the ferry to Pula and then a bus from there. Mine are just ...

If you would fly to Venice, then most of Germany is within range. The Rhine. Berlin. The North Sea coast. You can reach the Alps. Hike up mountains in view of the really steep peaks. Rothenburg, but depending on the season you might meet many other tourists. (Attention, there are several towns with this name.) Neuschwanstein. You might also look for a ...

We can't tell you where every possible regional train in the whole of Italy stops, the list would be too long! For a given train / route though, the easiest way to check is with Bahn.de, the website of the German railways. Put in the start station and the end station, then pick a train, then click Show intermediate stops to see the stops on the way Picking ...

You need to ask your bank; as they are the only ones that control where your card works. It may be true that all MasterCard-network cards work in Italy, and the widest acceptance is that of EMV "chip" enabled cards; but despite this your bank may block the use of the card. So, before you travel: Inform your bank that you will be traveling to Italy. Ask ...

I've had a chip-and-pin MasterCard credit card issued by an Italian bank foot several years. I've used it all around the Italy and in neighbouring European countries. The only instances in which credit cards might not work, regardless of the payment circuit they use (Visa/MasterCard), is at automatic machines such as the ones found at 24h petrol stations, ...

My recent experience as an American tourist in several European countries, including Italy (Rome and Trieste): MasterCard is widely accepted. If your card is a "swipe" card (ie, it is neither chip-and-signature nor chip-and PIN), it will work in slightly fewer places, but will still be adequate for your trip. If your card is a swipe card, read on for some ...

You Will Need an EMV Supported Credit Card EMV stands for Europay Mastercard and Visa. This is the new standard for security related to PCI compliance in Europe. This standard has been adopted in the United States and is currently being rolled out and is behind schedule. Most large banks support this standard in the US, Europe and most of Asia. You can ...

Yes MasterCard works in Italy. The question really should be does your bank's credit card work in Italy. Is it a chip & pin card or a chip & sign card (primarily US banks) or a swipe only card? Having a chip equipped card is essential in Europe as most POS (point of sale) terminals are set up for chip cards not swipe cards. Does your bank ...

Transportation and getting around wise, your best bet would be to stay somewhere near the Termini train station. That is where the long haul trains arrive, and you are pretty much 10-20 minutes away from pretty much every major attraction. Being close to the Termini station can be helpful if you plan to go/come from Florence, or Civitavecchia, where the ...

Ok, this is the authoritative answer i was looking for: Foreigners awaiting renewal of their residence permits can leave and re-enter Italy if they hold: 1. the receipt issued by Italian Post offices (Poste Italiane S.p.A) certifying the submission of the application for renewal of their residence permit or EC residence permit for long-term residents; 2. ...

There is a local bus from Malpensa to Gallarate. It is operated by a company called S.A.C.O.. It has a bus stop at the north west side of Terminal 2, which is not at the same place as the other buses. S.A.C.O. bus stop at the north end of Malpensa terminal 2. These buses connect to the train station in Gallarate. In January 2016, I paid €1.80 and the ...
