Milan-Verona-Venice-Milan: car?

Planning to travel Northern Italy. Plans are:
Verona - 3 days
Venice - 3 days
Milan - 3 days
(2 days travel for airport to & from)
Not doing any wineries this trip so wasn't planning on renting a car. Can I do these three cities w/o car and just use the train for transport? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks & Happy New Year!!

Yes! I am not a huge advocate of the train, so when I say yes, I mean yes. A car would just be a pain in those cities. Milan has a great underground system, Verona is small and cars aren't allowed in Venice.
Cheers,
Jan

Absolutely! A car would be a liability in those cities, and the trains are frequent and efficient. Vicenza is on the Verona-Venice line, and would be worth a few hours as well.

When are you going? It will be a shame to miss Lago Como, and you really could borrow time from both Verona and Milan. I would do:
Venice--3
Verona--2
Lago Como--2[Varenna]
Milan--2
All very doable by train.
