where do I go for 5 days between Ligurian Coast and Lake Como??

Jump to last reply

I am so confused about what to do with 5 days between our stay in Santa Margherita Ligure and the Como area.
My husband and I are doing a driving trip through south of France, Italy, Switzerland and back through to France.
We have not seen any of country Italy, and the last time I was in Florence,Rome,Venice was back in 1987 so it has been a while.

I have thought of 2 possibilities and I am not sure which is the best.

1) base myself in Bologna (although I keep reading mixed reviews about Bologna) and do a day trip to Venice and a day trip to Florence.

2) spend time in Tuscany with a day trip to Florence and visits to Siena and San Gimignano

we will have a car so can move around a bit if we need to.

please help - I am not which option would satisfy my need to see Italy and get the best of our 5 days
