Ideas for 6 nights Venice, 3 Vicenza, & 4 Milan

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will land at Marco Polo Airport, Venice, on Sept 12. Six nights in a palazzo on the Rio de Mendicante and lagoon (has a water dock), then off to the Veneto to see Palladian architecture, then over to Milan for four nights. No car, just two train journeys. You can Google Palazzo Merati to see where we'll be on the eastern edge of Cannaregio.

We've had three trips to Italy but this is our first time for Venice, which seems quite complicated. The palazzo was actually cheaper, amazingly, than our three star hotel, which we canceled. I found the beautiful palazzo in a tiny ad in the back of my alumni magazine. We won't have a concierge to ask things so I imagine we will get lost, but all guidebooks say to do that anyway.

So, here are the two main questions: What are your suggestions for five full days in Venice... and three in Milan? I've read most of the threads here about Venice but would still welcome suggestions. I cannot believe we will be there in just three weeks. Hoping that the horrid heat wave breaks!!!
