Travel Italy: Vacation Packages, Tips, Tours of Italy


»» Lake Garda + Cinque Terre

Carolyn asked us advice about a holiday in Italy including seaside, lakes, and art cities:

“…My husband and I will be traveling to Italy in July to attend a wedding in Verona.
We are thinking of hiring a car and driving to the lake district.
We have 4 days and then take the car back to Verona and then take the train to Cinque Terre for a week. Travel from Cinque Terre to Rome by train with an overnight stop in Florence. Does this itineray sound ok?…”

4 days for the lakes is ok, if for “lake district” you mean Lake Garda and surroundings only. By hiring a car, you’ll be able to comfortably visit the several towns and villages that are worth to see, located along the shores of Lake Garda.

From the lake to the seaside: a week for Cinque Terre is enough to enjoy of sights, hiking, walking, and any other activities this land has to offer you.

If I were you I would extend one more day the stay in Florence; in order to do that, you may cut one day from your Cinque Terre stay.

Lake Garda

However your holiday seem to be well planned; no any rush , car hire just when it appear to be necessary – Lake Garda surroundings would be hard to visit by public transp. .
It includes lake, sea, and art cities, such great destinations as Lake Garda, Cinque Terre, Verona, Rome, and Florence. The only downside could be the crowds; by choosing very common travel destinations, in July you could encounter any crowd, especially to the lakes and sea.
