Hi Fodorite Italy experts
We'll be making a long-awaited return trip to Italy in September, propelled by past medical events and the realization that it might not be a possibility for ever. One day, hopefully distant, we might be less inclined/not able to undertake ambitious trips.

We're flying via London to Rome, where we'll stay four nights before our Windstar cruise (Rome to Venice). Arrive in Venice early on a Friday morning, and we have a week before we fly out of Milano back to London (relly visit planned) and eventually back home to the US.

My question is about how much time to spend where. I've never been to Venice, so we're spending 4 nights there. Since my DH loves (underscore twice) any good ragu of the Bolognese persuasion, ;-) we thought we could take a train from Venice to Bologna, stay there a couple of nights, then train to Milano for a night before our flight to London.

Looking at trenitalia, it looks like train services are good, and not too long (we do love train travel!) What do you think? workable plan?

A bit of background: growing up in England, we used to visit Italy every summer. Also have spent time in Rome, Positano, Florence, Cinque Terre, Lake Maggiore, Dolomites -- it's Venice (and the ultimate ragu) that are the missing parts.
