Buses in Italy

Does anyone know some Internet sites that show schedules/fares of buses in Italy? I will be there in Jan/Feb and want to research the option of bus trips instead of trains. Thanks!

Hi,
I have a couple of bus websites for specific locations (like Siena) in Italy, but the following may have more general information

I'm afraid you'll have to be more specific, Rachel. There's no general bus travel site in Italy that I know of.

Where are you basing youself? Which bus trips are you sure you'll wanna make?

Hi
I found these. I have not followed all the links to the end, so I don't know how truly useful these will be. If you use any of them, let us know please.

Rachel, there are relatively few long haul bus connections in Italy. On the other hand, bus connections are pretty good within a specific region.

In your case, you wouldn'd have any problems finding bus connections between L'Aquila and Pescara or other cities in the Abruzzi. I would be very surprised if there's a bus from L'Aquila, say, to Venice. Most likely, you'd find connections from L'Aquila to Rome and to Milan. I would also be very surprised if there's a bus connection between Venice and Milan. The train connection is just too good and the bus company would be out of business in no time . On the other hand, there appears to be a bus service between Milan and Vicenza (maybe because the train connection is not as good).

You may wish to give a look at the site

By no means it appears to be complete and I wouldn't be surprised if connections it lists as effective, indeed don't exist ... use it at your own risk
