A couple of questions here, including itinerary help. Arriving Sept. 9th, 12-14 days in N. Italy
We are flying in to Venice and plan to spend 2 days there. Then I think we will take a train to Verona, spend one night and rent a car (yes, we can drive a manual transmission & will update our international driver's license, & research road signs & road rules) for the remainder of your time in Italy. We plan to go to Bolzano and haven't figured things out from there yet. We'll fly out of Milan on 9/21 or 9/21.
What interests us: the Dolomites, Lake Guarda? and Como, art, small communities and "of the normal tourist route" places. Interesting experiences: wineries, cheese making....
- Itinerary suggestions, including a suggested length of stay? I expect we need 2 days in Bolzano.
- Airbnb stays, small hotels, homestays?
- Wineries, small local restaurants...?
- Last question. Is it worth experiencing a thermal bath in N. Italy?
