Trip report - Bologna, Verona, Lake Garda, Lake Como

Jump to last reply

I just got back from northern Italy and I thank all who contribued on this site their experiences and suggestions.
The hotel in Bologna, the Orologio was superb. It isn't much to look at from the outside, but inside it is a delight. Nice room ( a bit noisy from the outside, though), the best breakfast, helpful staff and great location. Restaurants we ate in were Cesare, Fagione and Da Carlo. All very good, especially Cesare.
Verona - Torcolo Hotel - very quaint, helpful staff, adequate room, teensy breakfast room with even teensier breakfast. Although we had alot of rain, buying the Verona card for 8Euros was a big help. We got to see almost everything.
Restaurants were Cipetta and 12 Apostles. The latter, quite expensive but wonderful. If you go, make sure you ask to see the cantina in the cellar.
Sirmione - Villa Contine, a truly 5 star hotel in every sense, although I would have liked to see some fresh fruit for breakfast. We drove all around Lake Garda, a wonderful day's outing. Restaurants were Antica Contrada ( just outside of the town) and La Fiasca, a small excellent neighborhood place.
Bellagio - Hotel Belvedere, up the hill from the lake, a short walk into town. Beautiful view and nice help. Restaurants - Bilasca ( excellent) and Silvio, also excellent.
Altogether, considering the trip began on a sour note because Alitalia cancelled our flight, it wound up to be a very memorable and exciting trip. Northern Italy is a great place to visit. The scenery is breathtaking.
