Hello, I was going to book train tickets for my friend and me to go from Hallstatt to Venice, but now that I'm looking closely, I see that it is at least partially via bus (I'm looking at the oebb.at website).
This is for 20.05.2014, and I'm looking at the option of departing Hallstatt 07:32 and arriving Venezia 16:25. The details show:
Hallstatt to Stainach-Irdning to Bischofshofen to Villach Hbf to to Villach Hbf (Busbahnhof) Venezia Tronchetto
Can anyone shed light on this? Is this the best cheap way to get to Venice? Anything I should be aware of? Am I supposed to select the options to make reservations for an addition 6 euro each? It says reservations are compulsory for the one Villach to Venezia but that one is 0 euro.
I'm just confused and wanted to check in with some 'experts' before committing to the tickets! Thank you!
