trains – How reliable is public transport in Cagliari, Sardegna, Italy? Do you have contactless trips?

I have to change the flights in Cagliari on Sunday night and I will have about 2 hours off between the two, so I decided not only to sit in the terminal but to run to the city. I have an interest in history and transportation (and maybe food, but this calendar definitely doesn't allow for a good meal).
I made the following plan:

18:55 arrival

19:11 / 19:44 Take the train from Elmas-Aeroporto to Cagliari station

Walk from the station / port to Republicca to take a tram only for a few stops, then return with another and walk back to the train station (or by bus).

20:40 / 20:44 / 21:00 Take the train back to the airport.

This are my questions:

  • How reliable are schedules and trains? Should I expect them to arrive on time?
  • What is the easiest ticket issuance option? Do they make contactless trips? (I have an account debit card in euros) I looked at Trenitalia and the ticket description says it is only valid at the given time, but I cannot know for sure which train I can take. Can I buy train tickets before traveling? Is there a return ticket? (However, the price is so cheap that I don't mind paying two singles, the main limitation is time.
  • What would you suggest visiting (walking through) in the old town of Cagliari? Based on the search for Tripadvisor and Google, I hope Bastione Saint Remy is the biggest success.
  • Are tram schedules reliable? It seems to be a 20 minute service on Sunday night. Do the same trams return from the final station? (they have a return time of 6 minutes there) What is the fastest ticket issuance option for trams? I only found Italian on the tram website, so it doesn't help much.
  • Can I rely on Google Maps (my usual transit application) for bus stops, arrival times and route? (returning to the train station)
  • Emergency question: what is the best way to take a taxi to the airport and how much would it cost me approximately?
  • Additional question: can you suggest a restaurant or a street food place to try the local cuisine very quickly? Probably takeaway or standing tables.

Thank you if you can answer any of the above.

Driving – Rent a car for a day and leave it in another city in Italy

I want to rent a car in Italy, is it possible to take it in one city and leave it in another? In this case, from Bari to Naples.

Also, is there a minimum number of days for a rental? One day is probably enough in my case, but 2 days should also be fine.

Scams – Postal services in Italy – Poste Italiane vs. Friendpost vs. GPS

I visited Sardinia this summer and when I bought the first batch of postcards, I asked the cashier in the souvenir shop for stamps. He sold me a couple, but when I put them on later, I discovered that the seals looked different from what I previously bought elsewhere. I searched for information about them online and discovered that people complain that this service is extremely unreliable and slow.

When life gives you a GPS stamp, do an experiment, I thought. So I got stamps from the three available vendors and sent me some holiday postcards from Sardinia to the Czech Republic. Here are the results along with some notes about each provider:

Italiane Post

  • Red mailboxes throughout Italy, very easy to find.
  • Cheaper service
  • The seals are supposedly available in tobacco shops, but they are always sold out
  • Stamps are generally not available in souvenir shops.
  • Delivery time: 14 days.

Globe Postal Service (GPS)

  • Available in the vast majority of souvenir shops and some tobacco shops, they should have good incentives for store owners.
  • Service a bit more expensive than Poste Italiane
  • As part of the service, you get "tracking", but it only tells you that they handled the postcard. There is a QR code on the stamp that the recipient can open using their mobile phone and confirm the receipt.
  • You just have to throw the postcards in your own mailboxes, otherwise they will not be delivered. They are very explicit about it, but many people still complain about doing it accidentally.
  • Delivery time: 22 days.

Friendpost

  • It is quite rare to find, so be careful to have the postcards ready to send immediately after buying the stamps when choosing this provider, otherwise it is very difficult to find your mailbox
  • Like GPS, they are mainly found in souvenir shops.
  • The price is comparable to GPS
  • They also have "tracking" like GPS, but without the QR code. Otherwise, it works the same
  • What is quite impressive is its lost object service. I'm not sure how useful this is, but if they couldn't deliver their postcard, they scan it and put the image online. It is quite entertaining to browse the gallery
  • Delivery time: 32 days.

In my experience, none of the services are as unreliable as people say on TripAdvisor. Friendpost is the slowest, but I think this is because they have a scarce network, so they can't afford to pick up postcards as often as GPS.

In none of the cases, the delivery took several months, although in reality it is slow, especially considering that they were delivered within the EU. I recently received a postcard from New Caledonia, approximately 6 months after it was sent, so things could be worse than that.

All postcards arrived at their destination well, none was lost or damaged.

Travel to Italy with the Schengen visa applied in the old passport issued by the German consulate

I plan to travel to Italy and I have a valid C-Visit Schengen visa (issued by the German Consulate). however, the visa is in my previous passport that I had to change because all pages of the passport were full due to visa and entry / exit stamps.

I have been trying to reach the Italian Consulate several times (they did not allow me to enter the premise and no body answers emails since the last 3 days. In addition, there is also no response in the contact help line).

I really appreciate if someone in this group is aware of whether, according to recent immigration rules, they are allowed to enter Italy using the visa in the old passport accompanied by the new passport.

Is there any way to check if there are traffic fines in a rental car before leaving Italy?

I want to know if it is possible to verify if there are traffic fines on a rented car during the rental period in Italy. I am talking about tickets in which the driver is notified by letter, such as automatic tickets for ZTL cameras.

I am asking the question because most car rental companies charge a fee for revealing the driver's name when they receive the traffic violation letter. Therefore, if I can pay the ticket immediately, the rental company will never be notified.

europe – How do we request exactly the $ 27,000 offered to move to Italy?

What an interesting challenge!

I looked at the CNN article, which mentioned "Counselor" Antonio Tedeschi. There were too many cities to review, so I looked for the "Molise" region, which could be similar to what we know as a county, and could explain how the offer could include many small cities.

The Molise government has a web page. I can't read Italian very well, but Google Chrome will automatically translate it on the fly. The deepening produced a link for "Directors", rather as Supervisors or Board Members.

Presto! There was Antonio Tedeschi's page, including his email: cons.tedeschi@regione.molise.it

Write to him!

Italy – Change of trains in Firenze S.M.N. train station: how fast can it be done?

We are traveling by train (already booked) from Rome to Lucca in a couple of weeks with a train change at Firenze S.M.N.

I just looked at the tickets and the time between the 2 trains will be short. The station seems to be small.

How easy / fast is it to go from the high-speed train to Regionale trains?

Assuming we are at the door with luggage and that we are ready to run like hell between the trains
