How to get to San Martino di Castrozza from Bolzano

My family of 4 need to travel from Bolzano to San Martino di Castrozza in mid January.

What is the best way to get there using train and bus?

Many thanks for your advice.

You can take bus 180 to Vigo di Fassa (e.g. dep. 11:35, arr. 12:48: http://www.sii.bz.it/en/siipdfOldtimetables) and from there, Brusutti bus to S. Martino di Castrozza, but this second bus, coming from Canazei and heading to Venice, runs only once a day (14:50, arr. 16:00: http://www.brusutti.com/2/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Trasporto_pubblico_locale_2016_Brusutti.pdf).

It's not possible by train, and there is no way of shortening the bus journey by train either: it would be further, from Trento, and you'd have to go via Verona and Vicenza (or several changes, taking more than 5 hours, to Feltre) to reach Treviso, to catch the same Brusutti bus in the opposite direction! .

This is a trip that would only take 1 hour 45 minutes by car...by bus it's over 3.5 hours.

Just saying...

The San Martino di Castrozza website indicates several other possibilities by public transport at http://www.sanmartino.com/EN/traincoaches/ - enter 'Bolzano' as departure point in the box that says PUBLIC TRANSPORTS IN TRENTINO - TIMESCHEDULE AND ROUTES.

All those combos require multiple connections, however -- as an example -- there is one leaving at 8.36 via Ora-Cavalese-Predazzo, arriving at 12.09, that doesn't sound too bad, and another combo via the same route, leaving Bolzano by train at 14.36 that takes even less (2 hours 52 mins).

Thanks qaminari and FF

That gives me a few options - thank you. I have only ever used trains in Italy and a bit daunted by all the different bus companies and the idea of having to find them, rather than just gettiing a connecting train.

Latrevisana - we are Australian and so drive on the left and we live in a temperate climate in the very flat Perth (the best beaches in the world, by the way), so not at all used to snow, fog nor mountain roads.

So while I did drive a bit in France about 20 years ago, that was in the summer and was hair-raising enough.

We are actually going to Merano first, and I am very dissappointed that the Alpin Bob won't be operating when we are there.

I would love any further pointers about must do things in Merano, San Martino and Cortina. We are skiing in San Martino di Castrozza.

Thanks everyone.

Caro
