Hi all - I've been reading through the forums on here and thank everyone for their contribution - I'm hoping to get just a little more advice...
I'm heading to italy in May with work and only have a small window of opportunity to travel. I'm in bergamo for work and it seems most logical to stay on the west coast making way down to rome. I am battling with myself though at the thought of missing venice.
Is it worth the 3hr train trip from milan to venice just for an overnight / 2 days there? It would also add significant travel time on return as would be heading to cinque terre and so have to go back via milan anyway.
Rough travel plan is
Bergamo 3 days
Milan 3 days (if go venice 1 day milan 2 days venice)
Venice or not
Cinque terre 2 days
Florence 1 day
Rome 2 days
Thanks in advance appreciate your thoughts!
