City to go on to Northern Italy for 3 friendlies.
Europe. At last
its all part of the Giuseppe bergomi transfer deal
By northern Italy do they in fact mean a short 35 mile trip to Switzerland?
Get me on that plane
Well, got to sort one out first
Lake Garda is in a strategic position within easy reach of the principle national and international airports, the nearest being Verona-Villafranca, approximately 15 km, and Brescia-Montichiari, 30 km. Both are situated south of the lake and are connected to the Verona and Brescia railway stations by an airport coach service.
Another important airport is Bergamo-Orio al Serio, about 80 km from the lake.
Personalized transfer services are available to and from all the localities on the lake.
The Milan (Linate and Malpensa) and Venice airports are about 100 km from Lake Garda.
Wonder what airlines go to the local airports?
Should be plenty of Flybe deals ,especially Milan.
As soon as I read the thread title I immediately thought of the song from the Italian Job, we're the self preservation society (or however it was worded) and then promptly thought of sisu.
100km from there is a bit of a track though. Probably just me that thinks that
100km from there is a bit of a treck though. Probably just me that thinks that
100K Is only 60 miles ,an hour by train or car .
Whenever I go to the Dolomites in Northern Italy I just get a £35 easy jet flight to Milan and then get the train through Verona. Only costs about 35 Euros on the train. I'd assume for this you could get to the places via Verona. Flights to local airports are normally in the hundreds of £.
And, given City's likely budget for this trip, you could be sharing the journey with the team!
Haha! I can honestly say if I was off to Italy next month the last thing I'd do is go and watch the football! I go out there to get away from it all in the mountains!
Aren't they going with Harry Shaw via Dover?
With the amount of players we'll have left buy then, does Harry Shaw do mini buses? Reckon if you turn up to them games you'll get a trial!
Trust me - when and who are we playing - I'm off to Lake Garda for a bit in mid August (I expect I'm going to miss the games, but if not I may have to disappear from the missus for half a day - fat chance!!)
Lake Garda is a lovely spot, enjoy mate.
Cheers mate - been 3 times before we had our boy - he's now 8, so I thought it was time he had a proper ice cream!
Damn - now see it's late July, so I'll miss it - just hope SP knows what he's doing, lining up our kids against a Serie B outfit - dirty shin kickers (not stereotyping or anything!!):whistle:
You can fly to Verona from Gatwick with Easyjet or BA, but it will usually be quite expensive late summer.
You'd be better off flying to Bergamo from either East Midlands or Birmingham,can usually get cheapish flights there. From Bergamo get a bus to Milano Centrale and then the train over to Verona for about €12 on the regionale.
I got the plane there and back to Scotland with the team the other year
Rumour has it that the three games in northern Italy for your wee club are: Juve, Inter and Milan.:sarcasm:
Think of it as Ricoh - Sixfields - Ricoh.
Not much difference....
Is this for real and have any dates been released? Can't see anything on the offal.
Leaving for Italy on the 17th July and coming home 2nd/3rd August. Staying in a villa near Alba which is in the middle of Turin and Genoa. It has its own vineyard where we get to drink the produce Will have a people carrier so if anyone flies out they could well have a taxi service. Would be great if my little boy could watch his first game in Italy. Turin airport is about an hour away and Milan a little further.
Anyone have details of the 3 fixtures? Can't seem to find out who we are playing.
No teams announced yet bit provisional dates are 22nd, 24th and 26th
If this is correct I will have room for 5 more in my motor. My youngest son will have his first three games watching our club in Italy the lucky bugger
Beats flying home to get a game in but have a feeling that the wife won't be happy
Think I'll stick to the Nuneaton game, are our new "Firm/Ultras " going to this match ?
Sounds like a nice academy tour.
Should be nice long train journey for the players from Coventry to London to Paris to Zurich to Lake Garda. Group discount for 10 or more. Sisu will be using discount voucher codes as well and will opt out of big luggage in the hold. Just a small suitcase each.
Top cycling destination over there, always need a valid excuse to get across however the missus doesnt like cycling or football so i am knackered!
Just go. You might even get a bonus of the silent treatment when you get home
Fixture announced against Chievo in San Zeno Di Montagna on 23 July.
Will be there with my youngest lad. Anyone else going to be there? Will do my best to give a commentary of the game.
I hope to be. Just trying to sort something
I'm a 2nd year Product Design student at Coventry University and a Lifelong CCFC fan.
I'm looking to earn myself a couple of quid over...
At least this is £24k and not £13k like the last...
JOB ruled out for the rest of the season
Apart from the usual 'changing manager doesn't work'. What has he achieved?
Simple question, personally for me its a yes
Another MOTM performance at the weekend, some of our less experienced players running out of steam,...
