My husband and I want to travel to Italy in late March and could possibly be there in Easter. We are trying to figure out where there will be more pageantry, concerts and celebrations: Venice or Florence. This will dictate where end up during the Easter time frame. Also, do you have suggestions on where to visit Bologna or Verona. We hear the latter is a gem and it may do doable as a day trip from Venice. Someone mentioned on one of the forums that you can also do a train to Bologna from Florence in a couple of hours. Thoughts on all of this and how to best get to Verona from either Venice or Florence? Your help would be appreciated as always.
