2-week itinerary for Northern Italy

Jump to last reply

In the planning stages, thinking about next May/June, would fly in on a Sunday and leave on a Saturday. So it's about 12 full days.

Want to visit cities and regions which would be new to me, so definitely looking at the Dolomites and Torino/Aosta. Haven't read up on the Dolomites yet but Aosta seems to have some appealing day trips to Breuil-Cervina and Pila.

In addition, would like to spend 2 nights in Verona and visit Vincenza and possibly Bergamo and Brescia.

Went to Venice last month and went to Lake Como a couple of years ago so those can be skipped. Maybe if the itinerary works out, visiting Lake Como might be an option.

Car rental is an option. If all these destinations could be reached by train, that would be the preference but it sounds like a car would save time in Aosta and presumably around the Dolomites as well.

The number of bases and where to base (parking) would also figure into this.

Flights are not booked yet and it would be an award ticket so flexibility might be limited. Seems like flying into VRN and leaving out of TRN or vice versa would work out well. MXP has more flights but getting in and out of it seems a real hassle.

Is this too much area to cover? Typically people go to Lake Como, Venice, Cinque Terre for Northern Italy. I found a map online from Frommer's Northern Italy book where they're hitting every place I listed plus Cinque Terre, Venice, Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore.

Also Bassano del Grappa, Bolzano, Trent and Cremona, Genoa and Piedmont wine country. for a 2-week trip. May have to hunt down the book to see the text.

I removed a lot of the destinations but still covering a lot of ground from Aosta to Cortina d'Ampezzo (or wherever I'd stay near the Dolomites).
