Help Please with itinerary between Pisa and Milan in Sept/Oct.

Jump to last reply

Well I took the plunge and booked our airline tickets for our trip to Italy. We will arrive the last week of Sept and stay into October, we have 17 nights on the ground in Italy.

Due to the pricing, we are flying rt Buffalo NY to Milan. I would have preferred open jaw, but tickets were almost $400. higher, each, to depart from anywhere else in Italy. So we are going to enjoy our time between Rome and Milan for the last week of our trip.

Here's what I'm planning so far. Arrive Milan 9 AM (God and Delta willing). Take the train directly from Milan to Bologna. Stay in Bologna 3 nights.

Train from Bologna to Rome, 6 nights in Rome. (Our second stay in Rome, the main focus for this trip.)

Train from Rome to Pisa. (husband Really wants to go to Pisa) 2 nights in Pisa.

Here's where I need some help. I'm planning 2 nights in Milan for the end of the trip to get us back for our return flight and hopefully manage to see the Last Supper and a little of Milan on our one full day there.

I have 4 nights in between Pisa and Milan. We'd like to stay in a smallish town, but hopefully somewhere we could rent an apartment for the 4 nights.

We'd like to spend some time on the coastline, either in Liguria or the CT, and have somewhere we can do some hiking/walking and enjoy the area. Night life is not important to us, if we get an apartment we would probably cook our own dinners and then stroll around town....slowly. We don't plan on laying around on beaches, but wouldn't mind beach combing.

We are not renting a car, so it needs to be easy to get to, preferably by train. We would like to see some of the CT so we'd want somewhere with easy connections.

I guess the keywords here are slow and easy for 4 nights, walking, strolling, soaking up the sights. .

I was considering Comogli, Rapallo, Santa Marguerita, Chiavari???

Any opinions on the best location for us? No reservations for accomodations have been made yet, so I'm still somewhat flexible on the total itinerary.

Thanks for your time

Cindy
