train trips from Bologna

Staying for a week in Bologna in early April 2011,and think we'll need a few daytrips . Been to Venice , but thinking of Florence or Verona. Don't have a car , so guess the train can take the strain , although coach/bus not out of the question. Could we get to the coast and back in a day?

Suggestions very welcome.for me and me wife.

Very easy to get to Florence and Verona by train. Getting to the coast means??

maybe Ravenna? that takes about an hour and half by train, the other trips are less than an hour.

train travel is a great way to get around!

Above all, I think you shouldn't miss Ferrara: it is very near, just 31 minutes and 4 euros by regional train, it is a really beautiful town though it is not very well known, but it can be easily visited in a day trip. One week is enough to visit 3-4 different places. And Bologna's train connections are excellent.

The one good thing about Bologna is that for train routes, it is centrally located to get to a lot big italian cities. All I can tell you that most of the resorts along the coast i.e Cesenatico, Ravena, Rimini, are very quiet until summer as they are not very big towns. Best stick to the big cities.
