We're in our 70s and are taking a once in a lifetime trip iN September, a month in Italy.
We're not fit enough to hike through CT--would we see a lot from the train just taking a direct train all the way through, not stopping?
The photos are so beautiful. Can we see anything worthwhile from the train, or is it absolutely necessary to get out at the towns and face those horrible (to us) climbs.
Where would be the best place to catch a train along that route for the trip over to CT? Any ideas on how often the trains run from the suggested departure spot and how much they are and how long they will take to get to the north end of CT?
Since we don't plan to stop, is there any kind of food or soft drinks served on the train or should we bring some food and drinks in our carryon? We will have one big suitcase each--will this be a problem on the train?
I know these are probably simplistic questions and I've been trying to figure things out on the internet and from train schedules, but perhaps one of you could put it all into perspective for me.
Is it ridiculous to plan to see CT only through a train ride straight through? Thank you so much.
