Liguria, Piemonte, Lombardy--Veneto? Going Crazy, Bear with me...

Jump to last reply

So, I'm planning a trip to Liguria, but my flight is into Milan, so I start researching smaller inland towns to get a little variety. I am spoiled for choice, but I am starting to accept that without a car, I am really not going to be able to do this area justice. I don't want a rental car--I feel more freedom without one, and I'll just change my plans accordingly.
I want one central location where I can do day trips but more importantly ride a bike or take a walk.
I think the lakes region may be a little chilly in late May, and it is just not speaking to me. DH is away, so I'm running all these ideas by you in preparation for decision time. Apologies for thinking aloud, but this forum is best for me when bouncing ideas. I'm waffling between just sticking to Torino and Liguria (last night will be Milan)--or, since it is just as quick (and when will I be in Northern Italy again, who knows?)...Venice. In which case we could make a stop in Verona, visit Venice three days, then head back to Genova en route to our coastal destination, then back to Milan for last night.
Does anyone have any opinions, or just want to tell me I am right, Piemonte without a car is pointless? Plus, DH is not into wine and it is not wine touring season really anyway. We can always return one day when we might be more inclined to rent a car or have more time.
I should not complain about such problems, but I am at the frazzled stage and need someone to set me straight.
