Having read through many of the entries in this forum, I'm starting to think our scheduled 5 day stop in Bellagio could be too long even with day trips to the few towns around the lake. I would appreciate any advice, or suggested side trip/ itinerary change, or correction! This will be out first visit to Lake Como.
Our current plan is as follows. (All on public transport)
Arrive Milan 18Aug11, 1 night in Milan, then
5 nights in Bellagio
4 nights in Cinque Terre
3 nights Florence
1 night Sienna
2 nights Rome (visited previously on earlier short trip)
Then hop on a cruise which docks later in Venice where we spend another 4 nights.
