Italy Predicament...

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be spending roughly 2 weeksnn Italy (as well as 5 days in Prague...probably). We will be there in May and want to spend time in Venice, Florence and Bologna.

We usually travel with a large suitcase and carry on each ( for bringing back goodies) so we don't want to be doing too much lugging. Though shipping our treasures to reduce luggage is an option. We know Venice will be a decent stay, but we are not sure if we should stay in Florence and use it as a hub to see Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna Or stay in a Tuscan village or Bologna as a hub.

We love everything about traveling; food, history, architecture, wandering, art, nature, etc... Food and wine are big on the list, as is wandering/getting lost in the moment. We have looked at some bike tours of Tuscany departing Florence that look amazing, but it seems just as great to call Tuscany my home for a week. Would travel from a Tuscan town to a city such as Bologna be difficult from a small town? Same question regarding Florence, or should we stay there?
