11 days in Northern Italy- itinerary help needed

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,
My wife and I are going to Italy for our 5 year wedding anniversary for 11 days in late May. We have both been to the big three, of Rome, Venice and Florence, on post-college/study abroad trips, although not in 10+ years.

The trip is focused around food, and we have a preference for less-touristy smaller towns/cities. We're expecting to use the trains to get around, but would like to have 2-3 places as home base, with a couple of day trips (and can rent a car as needed).

We're feeling somewhat overwhelmed by the many choices. We're flying into and out of Milan, and are planning to stay in Northern (and possibly Central) Italy. We're thinking of the following:

Bologna / Emilia Romagna
Piemonte
Verona
The Lakes
Cinque Terre (1 day, possibly walking the trail)

This seems like too many places for 11 days. What would people cut? Anything missing? (again, focus on the food :) On Google Maps, this looks reasonably close together. Will there be a train route that doesn't require too much backtracking?

Thanks for your help!
