How do we get around?

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - ETC. -

Rent­ing a car in Italy is—what’s the Ital­ian word?— a night­mare, both when it comes to ac­tual driv­ing (have fun nav­i­gat­ing roads built in 1,000 A.D.) and cost: There’s a pre­mium on cars with au­to­matic trans­mis­sion, sup­ple­men­tal in­sur­ance is manda­tory and runs up to $25 a day, and gas is two to three times greater than the price in the U.S. So take public trans­porta­tion. Hop on a train for an hour from Mi­lano Cen­trale to Bres­cia, then con­nect to the hourly Treno del Nord, which trav­els the en­tire 15 ½-mile length of Iseo’s eastern shore. Once you’ve ar­rived, public fer­ries can shut­tle you around the lake and to nearby vil­lages. Cycling is also pop­u­lar (iseo­bike.com; start­ing at $10 per hour).
