Veneto/Geneva

Jump to last reply

I am just starting to plan a spring trip to first the Veneto region of Italy and then Geneva.
We are planning on late March/early April but dates are somewhat flexible at this point. Although the major focus of the trip is to visit our son who will be studying at the University of Geneva while doing research at CERN (just a little bit proud!), his free time will be very limited and thus our time with him will be as well.
As always , especially in italy, our focus is on food, art and Italian life. We are on far more of a budget than in previous years and I am trying to plan accordingly.

Only train travel this trip- thinking no car= less stress
My initial itinerary is as follows; (any suggestions are welcome)

Overnight flight Boston-Milan
Train to Padua (same day)

5 nights Padua Majestic Hotel Toscanelli $117.00 per night (WOW!)

First day recover from travel- second to explore Padua
Day trips to Treviso, Bologna and Venice. (We have been to Venice 5 times for several days each trip so this time just for lunch away from the beaten path.)

Train to Verona- 2 nights in Verona with day trip to Trento (again, been to Verona and would like to visit Trento) Hotel Firenze $160.00 per night

Train to Milan Centrale to make midday train to Geneva-hoping this is a lovely scenic train ride through the mountains.

Three nights in Geneva. Our son will be living on Rue Muzy so I am looking at Swisshotel Metropole Geneve for three nights which is a very short walk from his dorm. (hardly on the new budget plan).
Home on morning flight.

I would love advice/suggestions/critique/experience on time allotment, hotel choices, train ride to Geneva, Geneva hotels , favorites in Padua, Treviso , Trento and overall itinerary.
Thank you!
