Piedmont, the Lakes & Cinqueterra- Want to see them all!!

Jump to last reply

I have searched this excellent site for ideas and found many wonderful tips, but, I would still like to ask for advice specifically for my trip.

We (being DH, 10 year old daughter & I) will be travelling by hire car from Termoli in Molise in Mid-May.

So far my proposed Itinerary is:

8 nights Piedmont & the Lakes( eg. 4-5 nights around Asti, then possibly 3-4 nights Lezzeno, Lake Como ( noticed a lovely B&B "Nest on the Lake")

4 nights Cinqueterra( possibly stay in Portovenere or Lerici)

2 nights Turin (plan to take a train from Turin to Paris ) ( prefer to be in Turin at least 1 night before we take train)

We have a total of 14 nights

(driving time to Asti, Piedmont is about 6-7 hours from Termoli, to lake Como around the same time, to Lucca about 5-6 hours)

Would really love to see Pisa and Lucca or just Pisa somehow

Would love to stay in Agriturismo in Piedmont, but, would still like to daytrip to Bra, etc

Would like to see the Egyptian museum in Turin & eat chocolate. Is it better to stay 2 nights or take a day trip from Asti?

We are not big wine buffs, but really enjoyed wine tastings & lunches when we stayed at Agriturismo near Pienza 6 years ago)

Would love to include some kid-friendly ideas /places to visit or stay at.

We like to relax and take day trips, find playgrounds & other children for daughter to play with. We love good food of course, love markets and shopping ( well, I do)

Also where to drop hire car off in the midst of all this.( Since we need the car in Abruzzi/Molise we can easily keep it longer).

This is as far as I have got. Would really welcome advice. Asti in Piedmont is not concrete (so other suggestions in Piedmont would be appreciated) or Lezzeno , Portovenere or Lerici for that matter . I had to start somewhere.

Our daughter said she would love to play in snow, but, I think that's not doable, or is it?!!

Thank you for reading this through.
