Best way to do Venice, Cinque Terre, Piedmont, Tuscany and Lake Como

Jump to last reply

My husband and I thought we would do Switzerland but have now decided to do Northern Italy, Tuscany and Venice instead in early October, 2013. How do I accomplish the following. We both like to eat, drink and trek.

White truffle and wine festival in Alba (it is Oct. 12 - Nov 17 this year)
Tuscan or Umbrian farmhouse for 3-4 days
Venice for 2-3 days
Cinque Terre - walk villages and staying overnight in at least one of them
Lake Como (or other lake) for a few nights

Please help with best way and in which order. Any ideas on accommodations is always welcome. Car only in Tuscany?

Many thanks,
