I'm researching an easy place for college kids to go for some outdoor activity in nature during November/December from Florence. It would be for 2 nights only. They don't have tons of money to spend so aren't looking for a fancy resort. Just a place to go enjoy hiking and the outdoors.
-Chamonix was suggested but it seems difficult to get to from Florence.
-Can you get to the Dolomites by train? Bolzano or Castelrotto
-Varenna and hiking? Is there snow at Lake Como in late November?
-Elsewhere in Italy? Sicily?
Thanks for your thoughts!
Edited for more accurate request 😊
