okay, so going to italy on the 22nd of march.
first i am spending a day in milan then flying ryan air to rome ciampino at like midnight..
i think i'm just going to sleep in the airport.. first off.. can i do that? second off is it stupid to?
unfortunately i've been busy/i'm an idiot and all the cheap hostels are taken and i really don't feel like spending the extra 20 euros for a 6 hour sleep at some hostel which will probably take me a really long time to find at 1 in the morning as I will be really tired and what not.
also.. i am going from rome to naples and then from naples to florence and then from florence to pisa... should i buy my tickets online before hand or can i just buy bus/train tickets while in italy..
about how expensive is it?
please don't just recommend trenitalia because i am retarded and just couldn't figure it out, atleast not so that it was cheaper than just doing euro rail which is 120€ which is my last option.
blehh help please!
This is just personal experience talking, but I had a similar situation in Helsinki, and feel I'm wiser for it now. I spent the night at the airport there because I was too broke/stubborn to stay at a hostel. Several times during the course of the night, I was woken up by the workers there, who all told me to move, because I couldn't sleep on the benches and whatnot at the restaurants. It was a long, lonely, boring time, and quite honestly, I have a keen disliking for the Finnish language now. But maybe your experience won't be quite like that.
Yeah, its kindof stupid to sleep in airports, no you can't really do that anywhere. Besides, at 1AM, your chances of finding a hostel open are really, really slim. You're kindof screwed for now, so try to enjoy it as much as possible and treat it as a learning experience.
You can buy tickets at the train stations (when I backpacked Italy, my itinerary got totally messed up--thnx Torino...--and I ended up just making it up as I went; I had only made reservations for my train in and out of the country, and ended up having to get a refund on my outbound trip because I did that differently than planned, also) and its really easy and a great opportunity to interact outside of your little American-bubble.
That much travel on a ticket-by-ticket basis will likely be more expensive than just getting a eurorail pass--try looking at local-to-country passes, though, I think you can get one to cover yourself for less than E120.
