Questions Asked

CiaoMy wife and I are looking to buy a place in Tocco da Casauria, Abruzzo. I am trying to find out if there are bus services from Tocco to both Pescara and Sulmona. The local public transport operator is TUA.

In Australia our drivers licences are a credit card type with our photo embedded in the card. For car hire and to meet Italian traffic law do Ialso require an "International licence" or is the photo ID enough.ThanksMark

CiaoThanks for your reply. Even with the link my browser didnt give me  a complete timetable however thanks for your information. We are looking at Tocco as we have found a house which suits our purpose and we like the small town. I do agree with you Sulmona is a beautiful town. We have stayed there many times.Thanks againMark

Good Morning dhutchinsonYou are correct you cannot drive around Cinque Terra. Nor do you need to. I would take the train to La Spezia then change to the local train that runs to all five villages. You can get a train pass that allows multiple trips so you can get on and off as required for a couple of days. We stayed in Riomaggiore and travelled to all 5 villages from there. I can recommend Camere Paradiso. Our room was right over the harbour with a large balcony.When you have concluded your holiday in Cinque Terre return to La Spezia and hire your car from there.Have a great trip
