Help with NE Italy trip please

Jump to last reply

I actually have purchased the tickets so this isn't one of those trips that I plan then change my mind about, which certainly does happen.

We will be in Philadelphia and have vacation time so decided to fly out of PHL to Italy.

However the cost for open jaw tickets from PHL to FCO, then VCE back to PHL, was about $300 less per ticket than round trip PHL <> VCE. Took the open jaws, of course.

So now we land in Rome, where we just spent close to a week in October, and are more anxious to head to the Veneto, where we originally planned to spend all of our 10 days. .

Top things on our list are, in no particular order
The Biennale in Venice... just a few nights; we have spent a good amount of time in Venice
Opera in Verona
A brief stop in Ravenna for the mosaics

Second tier wish list includes a visit to the northern end of Lago di Garda
Maybe Bologna where I've never been
Other Veneto towns, but I'm having a hard time choosing

Anyone do a similar trip? Or have any ideas?

We will probably hop on a train as soon as we get to Rome. Times to both Bologna and Verona are good; nice napping but not too long a train ride.

Im in my very initial planning stage and I'm thinking we would want a car for Ravenna and Lake Garda and maybe Bassano del Grappa. Bologna, Verona, Venice all call for trains, I think. I can't quite make the car and train parts of the trip fit, and I know I can't go everywhere.
