Weather's crummy in northern Italy now--suggestions for places

Jump to last reply

Right now we are in an apartment in the far NE corner of Tuscany, using this as a base, and we'll be here for 4-5 more days. We've already spent a week in Venice and a day in Ravenna. When we leave here we have either 5 or 6 nights before flying home out of Malpensa. The weather has been crummy and cool for most of our trip, and recently it has been running 15 to 20 degrees below normal and is raining. Long range forecasts are a little better (though still definitely cool with rain now and then) for the rest of our trip.

We have a car and no agenda or reservations for the rest of our time. We'd thought about the Cinque Terre for a change of pace and some hiking, but most of the non-expert trails are closed for a couple more months. We don't want to just relax at the lakes, but we could do a bit of sightseeing in the area. We're maybe thinking of Mantua for a few days of exploration and biking.

Does anyone have any other Ideas we haven't thought of for places somewhat between here and the general airport area for conditions where the weather isn't exactly prime? We're pretty low key, enjoy all sorts of different activities (including outdoorsy), and don't want the hassle of a big city since we have a car to deal with. We don't need major tourist sights or locales and don't need to be on the go all of the time. Any interesting areas for a time when Italy is not the sunny and warm locale we'd expected it to be? Thanks much for your thoughts.
