Italy/Best mode of travel


We arrive in Milan airport on 9-9 and need to get to Cioccaro di Penango.  What is the best and least expensive way to do this?

Hello Cheryl,

I would suggest renting a car, as I think it will make your initial arrival easier, and give you the option of exploring the countryside around Cioccaro di Penango during your stay.  There are many cities and villages within only a few kilometers of your destination.

You could get to Penango from Milano by train for very little money, less than 20 euro per person.  However, the voyage will be long and you will have to change trains at least twice.  The fastest route by train would be Milano Centrale to Moncalvo and change at Moncalvo for Penango. But this adds a lot of time to your traveling period, 3-4 hours, and will not take you exactly where you need to go.  

I suppose this really depends on your budget and what you plan to do during your stay.  But, in that region, a car really seems like the best option.  I hope that helps!

I can answer many types of questions about travel in Venice Italy including questions on the topics of transportation, wireless communications, restaurants and/or shopping for food, bars and nightlife, shopping for locally produced souvenirs, where to acquire personal necessities, how to do laundry, the Lido di Venezia, excursions to the outlying islands, and how to rent apartments for short terms stays. Unfortunately I am unable to answer questions about hotels in Venice and I do not hold myself forth as an expert on the historical sites of the city. But I can, of course, recommend my personal favorite museums!


My first visit was in the summer of the year 2000, when I stumbled off a train at Santa Lucia Station with absolutely no idea of the wonders that awaited me outdoors. I have since been visiting Venice at least twice a year, usually spending at least three weeks at a stretch. Yes! I am one of those people who fell in love with the city at first site. In the winter of 2010 I authored and published the OG Venice Travel Guide which is a top ten guide to Venice on the iTunes App Store and is now also available through,, the Google eBookstore and the Apple iBookstore. OG Venice Travel Guide focuses primarily on providing detailed practical information about life in Venice such as how to get around town, where to eat good food at a reasonable price, where to buy genuine locally produced goods and how to do normal things like wash clothing or buy outlet converters. Originally imagined as a guide primarily for students and long term visitors, OG Venice Travel Guide has proved popular with a much larger audience and has gained a reputation locally in Venice as the guide that introduces the "real Venice" to visitors.
