Help - my slow travel trip to Italy is turning into one and two night stays

Jump to last reply

I thought I was planning a trip this year that would be a little more 'slow travel' than I sometimes do but the more I plan the more it becomes a series of one and two night stays. The Italy portion is about a week and we will be renting a car for the first time in many years so I want to get to some of the places that I've skipped on recent trips when I was just traveling by public transportation. But how to arrange? I'm caught in the dilemma of day trips/lots of backtracking vs. moving from place to place every night.

Here's my tentative itinerary:
Two nights San Marino with day trip to Urbino ( and maybe San Leo if time).
Ferrara for one night (leaving San Marino early so will have most of the day/next morning)
Bassano del Grappa - one or two nights? (also want to see Asolo)
Mantova - one or two nights?

I was going to do three nights Mantova and day trip to Bassano but that looks like unnecessary backtracking and I actually found a better place to stay in Bassano.

Then on the last day (of this part of the trip) we'll have a whole day because we are aiming to get to the hotel at MXP and drop the car in the early evening. My husband has a 7 am flight the next day and then I switch to public transportation for another two weeks in northern Europe.

Questions - how much time in Mantova and Bassano? I am almost considering skipping Ferrara to have more nights in one of the other places but I really want to see it and not sure I need more time in those other places.

For background I have already been to Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Bologna, Treviso and Venice.

Any hotel recs?
