Ron, hard to answer this. Tell us:
WHEN--HOW LONG--WHAT PART--CAR OR TRAINS
HOW MUCH--HOW MANY ???????
It would take hours to tell it all.

Ron, get a good map and find these places then connect the dots:
VENICE---FIESOLE--SIENA---MONTALCINO
VOLTERRA---PORTOVENERE---LAKE ORTA
That will keep you busy for 2 weeks and
you will see the best of north Italy.
This assumes flying into Venice and out
from Milan---or vice versa. Good luck!

Hi, Ron. I highly recommend the Dolomites as part of your trip, even if you can only stay one night. My husband and I spent several days near Merano in October of 99 and loved the area. We stayed at the Castel Fragsburg, high on a mountain overlooking Merano -- and I can't say enough about the wonderful accommodations, food, and service. From there, we took day trips, especially scenic routes through the mountains. They were spectacular. We had already spent time in Milan, Siena, Pisa, and St. Gimingiano, and were on our way to Venice, so the Dolomites were a nice diversion, especially since they have an Austrian flavor. Some guests in the hotel actually wore leiderhosen! Please let me know if you have questions.

Ron,

You must visit Verona. Forget about Romeo and Juliet and experience how wealthy Italians live! The side walks are all marble, and quite a site to see. My fiance says that Verona is his favorite place in Italy! And that is coming from a man who is not interested in art and architecture, but Verona satisfied his thirst for quality culture!
