3 weeks in Northern Italy

Jump to last reply

I can always rely on this forum to give great advice! We will be starting our three week trip with 5 nights in Venice (in stone) and then using a combination of train and rental car to explore Northern Italy for the rest of our three weeks. Neither our return date nor city is set yet, but so far that would leave us with around 16 nights.

We're thinking Verona, Bologna, maybe Chianti for a change of pace, maybe briefly Cinque Terre, back up to Lake Como area before leaving from Milan. (No Florence this time...it's gotten so crowded!)
Via Michelin shows all this as just over 500 total miles driving so that is certainly doable.

We're in our 60’s, have travelled a lot, are quite flexible (with travel plans anyway! Ha).
Any other ideas or suggestions?
