Hi Helen Small,


yes, you can use "viaggiare" (and also "andare") in a lot of instances where in English it would be "ride"

ride a bike = andare/viaggiare in moto

ride a bicycle = andare/viaggiare in bici

ride a train = andare/viaggiare in treno


You can also think of it as "to travel by + means of transport".


Thanks for your comment!

Hi G. R.,

"essere" and "stare" are not action verbs, that's why they're not included. If you'd like to learn more about those two verbs, check out this video:
