Northern Italy Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Hello, We are traveling to Italy in July and have 8 full days. We are flying in and out of Milan. We will be traveling with our children ages 17 and 20. We have plenty of places we would like to visit and they include : Valle D'Aosta, Lake Como or Maggiore, Cinque Terre, Portofino, Lucca, Pisa and or San Gimignano, and Venice. I know that is is way too much for our short time period so feel free to cut from our itinerary. I will say that a trip to Venice is a must but I am happy with an overnight or just a day trip. Also not sure of the best way to see Cinque Terre .. whether to stay in one of the 5 villages or make a day trip to the area. I will add that we had a tough time choosing between Switzerland and Italy - we were thinking that a visit to the Lakes and or Valle D'Aosta would give us the best of both worlds. We will have a car for this trip. We are not big museum people. We love walking, moderate hikes and the idea of renting bikes to ride around walled cities (Lucca) really appeals to us. We don't make a big deal about food but do enjoy local markets and cafes. We would be open to staying in 2 or 3 locations and making long day trips for the convenance of having a "home base." Any advice would be welcome and very much appreciated.
