Hi, i am travelling through Italy in the summer, have got all the info i need about times and the such, but cant seem to find any decent sites that tell me how much journeys are. Have found one at railsaver.com but this does not tell me all of the journeys i am doing. Also looking for some ferry prices across the adriatic to Croatia. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Nicola. I am also travelling thru Italy and getting the ferry to there from Croatia.
I've found this ferry company:
around £40 for a crossing one-way.
and this link:
is excellent to finding certain trains and prices(?).
hope that helps. when are you heading off there?
Hey, going on the 13 June for 17 days, only a small trip this year as cant really afford to go for any longer. Found that this site was really good for train times but i didnt get any prices from it at all. reiseauskunft
When r u going and for how long? DOing all of Italy or just some of it? Did a trip round western europe year before last and did the northern part of Italy then. Last year did eastern europe and did the northern part of croatia, so filling in the gaps this year.
I'am going in early May start off in Berlin and work my way down to Croatia in 16 days thru Prague,Budapest and Krakow. then spend a week or two in Croatia.Do you reccomend any places to stay? whats the hostals like there? i hear there aren't many. Is it easy to get around the Islands? Yeh go to Bari then work my way North to Bologna (got a relative there) would love to see some good art there, is florence good?
Basically going for as long as possible considering working abroad aswell.
where do you think you're gonna go in southern Italy? Sicilly and the like?
Did Prague, Budapest and Krakow last year and loved them all. Make sure u have time in Krakow for a day trip out to auschitsch and Birkenau and if u have the salt mines are a worthwhile trip. We stayed in a really nice hostel in krakow, was called greg tom. Was quite smalle, only 2 dorm rooms and 1 bathroom. But it did have a kitchen and free use of the internet whenever u wanted. About a 5 minute walk away from the main town.
In croatia ive been to Zagreb and Pula, though also ended up in Rijeka through some unfortunate mix ups with trains and the like. Zagreb there was an official youth hostel, Pula i stayed in a private accomm place, but this was really nice and easy to find through google. Didnt stay on any of the islands, but took a boat trip out for a day which was really good.
This year starting in Pisa then going to Florence before across to Split, down to Duborvnik, back across to Bari the Naples, Rome and flying home from Pisa then. Last time in italy did Venice, Verona and Milan.
Fitting my trip in between end of exams and graduation, so only going for 17 days. Should be good though.
Hi, I'm new on here but thought I would reply to your post as I had pretty much the same idea - I am leaving for a 22 day trip to Italy on the 12th June so I can get back before my graduation ceremony
Have you tried the http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html website (sorry I dont know how to make links clickeable) this is where I have found most of my train times/prices. Just a suggestion, hope you have a wicked time!
Cool sounds good, I'm surprised you can afford it being a student! where do you study?
Yeh I have lots of places in Croatia i want to go to but didn't know the best way to get around? bus or train? from what I've heard and seen the Plitvice Lakes are nice did you go there? Really looking forward to seeing florence,been wanting to go to Italy for a long time.
Hi Angie, welcome
In terms of the trenitalia website i found plenty of info on timings but couldnt seem to get the prices for any of my journeys.
I'm meant to be fitting in 3 weeks work at a school which should fund the trip. Am at leicester uni, with only about 6 weeks left to go.
getting around Croatia is best by bus. They run much better than the trains and dont tend to take too much longer, plus there is loads of nice scenery. If ur travelling down through the southern part of croatia then bus is ur only option a lot of the time as there are very few train stations in the south.
Yeh I thought the bus would be best, other people have told me that.
heh, your in Leicester been there quite abit I've got a friend studying there. I'm in Derby at the moment.
