Hi!
My name is Sara M. and I'm from Montreal. I am set to leave for the Italian Espresso tour on May 10th. My flight is at 10pm. Is anybody else leaving from Montreal at that time?? I hope that I can meet a friend from the tour before so we can travel together. Please let me know, thanks.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all!!

    Hi Matthew,
    Thanks for your reply. I will repost this message in the Meetup group.
    After the tour ends in Venice, I will be heading back to Rome to catch my flight. How about you?

    I need to get back to rome too, but my flight is the next day, the 19th. Is your flight back on the 18th? Our bus gets back to rome around 6/7pm. I’m thinking of taking a train back instead to have more time in rome.

    Yea I have to go back to rome too but my flight is on the 19th. Is your flight back on the 18th? The bus gets back to rome around 6/7pm. I was thinking of taking a train back instead since it’s alot faster, to have more time in rome.

    My flight is on the 18th, because I have a party on the 19th that I need to attend.
    The bus is not going to work for me. How long will the train take to get from Venice to Rome? maybe I can do that. I need to be in Rome by noon.

    What time is your flight? There’s a train leaving from venice 8:47am arriving rome 12:14. There’s earlier trains too, check trentalia website, (ve mestre to roma termini) but buses to the station don’t run that early, trips take around 3 and a half hours. The hotel there said cab is around 20euros to the station. Then around 2euros for the train to the venice station. Bus to treviso station is around 2 euros. But there is trenitalia special 2 for 1 for sat tickets for base price,, would be 40euros each. Single would be 49euros with the cheaper special fare. Would need to buy in advance though because they sell out. Maybe we can get in on the 2 for 1 deal? Message me your email and we can work something out? I’d want to get the cheaper ticket with two for one special anyway.

    Thanks for the information. I managed to change my flight from Rome to Venice so that its easier and I can spend more time in Venice.

    Hi! I will be arriving in Rome on the 11th at noon. Did you book the Contiki shuttle to get to the hotel? You can always do that. That’s what I plan to do.

    I read you have to do this in advance.

    A shuttle service operates between Rome Fiumicino airport and our Roman hotels and should be booked at the same time you book your trip. If you choose this option you will be sent a voucher along with the rest of your travel documents. Present this voucher at the Airport Shuttle counter located in Terminal B of the arrivals hall.
