Two weeks Verona, Bologna and Venice - time for other day trips?

Jump to last reply

After previous consultation on this board, I've come up with the following plan for our 13 days in northern Italy. I have incorporated a few days trips but I'm not sure if that's too rushed.

We are 2 mid-50’s active couples travelling to Verona, Bologna and Venice in September. We enjoy food, wine, art, museums, walking.

Day 1 – arrive Venice from Canada at noon and immediately take train to Verona. We have tickets to the opera that night (it is the last performance of the season and we realize we may be tired but would like to try to attend).

Day 2 – Verona (Piazzas Bra, Erbe, del Signori, San Zeno Maggiore Basilica, Castelvecchio, San Fermo)

Day 3 – Verona – what to do on this day? Are there any tours that would be interesting? Or should we see something else on our own?

Day 4 – day trip to Lake Garda – train to Desenzano; visit Sirmione. Is this worthwhile? Any other spot on the lake be better?

Day 5 – train to Bologna – apartment 15 min walk from train station (explore Piazza Magiorre)

Day 6 – have booked an organized food tour to Parma, Modena

Day 7 – Bologna – walk up to San Luca

Day 8 – Day trip by train to Ravenna

Day 9 – Train to Venice – apartment in Dorsoduro

Day 10 – Venice plus day trip to Burano

Day 11 – Day trip to Padova (Pinacoteca Museum)

Day 12 – Venice

Day 13 – depart Venice back to Canada

Any comments you have are most appreciated. Thank you!
