Help/suggestions for 2 week trip to Genoa/Liguria, Bologna, Venice

Jump to last reply

Would love some advice on planning our 15 night trip to Italy in early - mid October. After a lot of difficulty choosing destinations, we are planning on:
Flying into Genoa - 2 nights. Maybe stay here
http://www.hotellenuvole.it/main.php in the old town.
Main goal to wander the Carrugi/old town, eat good food, visit the Mercato, pop into some Palazzos, ride the funicular for some city views.

Train to Camogli - 3 nights, Cenobio dei dogi. Goal to do some easy hikes/walks, train to some of the surrounding towns (Chiavari, Rapello), eat good food in Camogli and surrounding towns, relax, take a boat trip, more good food!

Train from Camogli to Bologna, 6 nights. B&B Antica Casa Zucchini (recommended by sandralist on this board, thanks, seems lovely!). Plan to spend time in the city itself, day trips by train (Parma, Modena, etc), maybe cooking class, visit food markets in Bologna, more good food!

Train from Bologna to Venice, 4 nights, fly home from Venice.

Does this seem like a good distribution of days. Enough time in Liguria? I was considering staying all 5 nights in the area in Camogli, with day trips to Genoa, but there's lots that seems interesting to Genoa, so rather than doing 2 days trips, staying a couple nights seems to make more sense. Will 3 nights in Camogli after that be enough to enjoy the area?

Regarding train travel, would we need to book in advance for Camogli to Bologna, and Bologna to Venice? What's the best route to Bologna from Camogli, would it be a regional train?

We weren't planning to rent a car, but the main thing I think we're missing without one is some time in the Emilia Romagna countyside. Would it be worth it to rent a car for a day from Bologna to visit some rural areas? Or is there a great agroturismo with excellent food near a town we could take a train to and then a short taxi ride, for one night? I'd prefer not to move around too much and do one night stays, but it would be nice to get into the countryside a little. Will the countryside in the area be pretty in October or fairly bare/brown? Initially we were thinking of just doing Genoa/Liguria and Piedmont, then decided to include the Bologna/ER region, and thought Piedmont after all that might be an overload of good rich food, so decided to do Venice instead, which should be a nice complement to everything else. Also skipping Piedmont avoids the hassles of renting a car.

Would love any tips, advice, suggestions!
