We are going to be traveling from Como (the city) to Bolzano and was wondering if someone had the most direct route to this location?
We are going to be staying in Bolzano for three days and are looking for some good hikes for moderate experienced hikers. We have purchased the 50 Short Walks in the Dolomites book but it appears that a lot of these are in other towns. Anyone that has traveled there how easy is it to get to the other locations, the book speaks of the public transportation as excellent and we were planning on using this to get around most places/hikes but was curious what others experience was?
Then we are going to be traveling from Bolzano to Florence and was wondering the most direct public transportation route?
Also do you know how far in advance you need to purchase these tickets for the train rides to and from Bolzano (from Como then to Florence)?
Any suggestions would be appreciated! Very excited to visit this beautiful area of Italy!
