Northern Italy - where to go?

Jump to last reply

Hello! My husband and I are traveling to Italy in January. It'll be our first time in Europe so we are very excited.

We're flying in/out of Milan, so for now we're thinking of doing this:

Sunday- arrive Italy @ 8am. take train to Bologna. Spend a few hours there, then train to Florence.
Monday - Florence
Tuesday - Florence
Wednesday - leave Florence
Thursday - ?
Friday - ?
Saturday - ?
Sunday - fly out from Milan

We're not sure what other cities to visit in between, and hoping we can get some suggestions!

We're thinking of bypassing Venice, because we heard it's very touristy.
We love good food, beautiful/quaint towns to explore, and not very into museums/historical places.
We like to just walk around and explore new cities/towns, and was wondering if anyone could suggest appropriate northern Italy cities to fill up the rest of our itinerary.

We're also thinking of doing a one-day tour from Milan to Cinque Terre at some point as well - any advice regarding this?

Thank you so much!!!
