IMM 2023 Italy

Post by Jez »

Well it seems the Euro Motorail is once again operating for 2023, and in particular the service from Dusseldorf to Verona, and surprisingly not much more in price than when we used it for the Bavarian trip back in 2018.

However, it's only going to benefit anyone if you've got a week either side of the Event ! Below FYI
