Young Couple Traveling in Northern Italy

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in our late 20s and will be going to Italy the end of July to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I have spent a bit of time in Italy before (we actually got engaged there!), and I studied in Florence when I was in college.

I know we will be flying in and out of Milan and I am planning on spending the first 4 nights of our 8 night stay in a little village on the Riviera called Camogli (about 2 hours from Milan, near Cinque Terre). We stayed here for only two nights when we were in Italy last, and it was definitely not enough. We loved it.

We would love some advice on great cities/towns to visit for the remaining days of our trip. I have wanted to visit a winery, but I am not sure a good tour to choose that feels authentic. As much as I love Florence and Venice, we are hoping to not go anywhere overrun with tourists, or feeling like it is completely catered to Americans. We, like i'm sure everyone reading this, like good food, good wine and trying to have as authentic an experience as possible!

Ease of transportation is huge for us, we don't have a lot of money, and need to travel almost exclusively by train. Ideas I have, but would love recommendations further, are a winery tour (any specific recommendations?), I have read some lovely things about Bologna, is this worth a couple of days? Anyway, any advice would be great. We will probably spend the final day in Milan to have easy access to the airport.

Thank you!
