I am going to northern Italy for two weeks in June. I begin the trip with 3 nights in Monterosso in Cinque Terre - then I have a gap of 4 nights - finish up with renting an apartment in Venice for one week. I would love suggestions for where to spend the 4 days/nights between CT and Venice. I am a retired woman, traveling alone, and I will be taking trains. If possible, I would prefer to stay in one place and take day trips, as appropriate, from there. I am thinking of either Verona or Bologna. My reading about Bologna so far doesn't make it seem to be a place I would enjoy for 4 days, but there are numerous appealing day trips from there, so it may be a good base. I want to see Verona - but are there enough other sites to see near Verona to fill 4 days. By "fill", I mean see something every day, but still have time to wander, wonder, and eat! I prefer to take my time and absorb rather than keep to a tight schedule to "see everything.
