Hubby and I hopefully leave for Italy September 7. Flying in to Rome. We will be in Italy for 23 days, then continuing on to Switzerland. We have been to Italy several times, including Rome.
Our plan right now is to stay in Rome for three nights. Then staying in Lucca, Siena, Bologna and Florence. Will have a car so we can visit small towns. Flying from Florence to Geneva. We are content with keeping that part of the trip.
Now we’re thinking it’s going to be too hot in Rome. Trying to figure out where to go before Lucca - someplace a bit cooler. We’ve been to Lake Como and loved it. There’s a direct train from Rome to Milan, then an hour to Varenna. Too much after long flight??? Any other suggestions?
