Overnighter from our Vicenza base?

Would like to take an overnighter from our base in Vicenza departing Mon. March 24th returning to Vicenza on the 25th. Prefer trains over busses. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Verona is about 30 minutes by train, Venice a little under the hour, Milan a litle over the hour. Allwell worth considering. See www.trenitalia.it (English language version)for timetables

Hi Skeeboy,

I know it's off-topic but is it true that there's a shop at the base selling all sorts of goodies from the States? I can't find anywhere in Italy selling Ben & Jerry's or Reese's Pieces!

Obviously, this is an old message, but, the info still applies. Many, many years ago, I was stationed in Vicenza and have been back a couple of times since then. You could easily go to Florence and back in that time, say nothing of Venice. Yes, you can get all sorts of American stuff on the base - it's a little America. You do have to have a military or diplomatic connection to get on base however. You can easily be in a Cinnabon or Burger King or Taco Bell and it'll feel like America and then be on the Grand Canal in Venice in an hour or so.

Thanks. So there is Burger King, Taco Bell, etc and shops inside the base? Wow!

Maybe 4th of July celebrations they might have some of these goods on sale??
