Winter in Bologna, Venice and Rome

Jump to last reply

I've been enjoying all the helpful hints and stories here and will now add my itinerary, and hopefully be able to contribute post-trip. I'd appreciate any thoughts or observations you might have.

I'll be traveling with my 24 y/o son, who is going to take a week-long course in Bologna, where we are flying in and out of. This will be the fourth trip to Italy for both of us, though he's never been to Venice and I've never been to Rome. We've been to Modena and smaller towns in Emilia Romagna, but never Bologna. We arrive in Bologna Dec. 30 and depart Jan. 12. I've reserved trains for Bologna to Venice and Rome.

Nights 1-3 Bologna. Hotel Metropolitan. Get to know the city. Eat a lot. Maybe a day trip to Ravenna. Will be there New Years Eve.

Nights 4-8 Venice, Hotel Canal Grande (Santa Croce).

Nights 9-10 Bologna. Son starts course, I make a day trip to Florence.

Nights 10-12 (on my own) Rome, Albergo del Senatore (near Pantheon)

Night 13 Bologna, then home.

My favorite thing to do in cities is walk, discover neighborhoods, people-watch, visit outdoor markets…After that I am mostly interested in art.
