Trip Report Italy- From Rome to Milan

Jump to last reply

Hello ,,

I am flying from Athens to Rome in September. I have about 13 days to spend until my flight leaves from Milan to return home. This is my second trip to Italy, however, the fist one was very rushed with only 1 or 2 days in each city. This part of my trip is solo as my friend is leaving from Athens to go home. I would like to travel from Rome to Milan at a more leisurely pace. If anyone could recommend places to visit along the way and the best mode of transportation. I would like to visit some wineries as well. Im thinking of taking the train but am confused as to what type of ticket I should purchase and if it travels to the different Tuscany regions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Christine

    Hi Little one. I guess without knowing what you want to do in Italy, or what you want to see its hard to provide a definite answer. I can tell you my favourite places.
    I am actually heading to Italy in a months time so will be enjoying this beautiful country.
    Definitely i would suggest Florence as a stop in. You can use this as a base for the Winery region, Chianti, Montepulchino etc. I myself havent done the winery tours, but am going to do it this year. I've hear that renting a bike to the wineries is nice and enjoyable.
    Florence has a plethora of attractions to see, the museums, markets, outlet malls, wineries, the duomo and many many more. Florence is renowned for leather making, so you can find some really good leather products at way cheaper prices than you can find elsewhere and comparable or better quality than the top end designers.
    Using Florence as a base you can take a short train to Pisa to check out the Tower. I suggest this as a day trip as there isnt much else to do. I am checking out Siena this year as well, and as a medieval town it offers alot more in terms of structural design etc.
    Bologna is a nice town to visit on the way to milan from florence.
    Venice is always high on the hit list for most ppl. For me it is quite different to the rest of Italy, but perhaps its because it used to be a separate municipality. Venice has a lot to offer and is renowned for murano glass and silk.
    in terms of attractions, i would have to know what you're looking for in order to answer, as there are tonnes of attractions.
    looks up the following for trains:

    hopefully this helps. tx dan
