Wondering if you can help, myself and my partner are going to Verona on Sunday 28th July, we have tickets to the opera that night and had intented to fly back on the Tuesday, giving us Monday/tuesday morning to explore Verona. However, as it turns out I can change the flight to fly back on friday for little or no cost (we fly in and out of Milan Linate and will be getting the train to Verona). I have already booked a hotel in Verona for the two nights. What I was hoping to do was to book another location to travel to on the Tuesday and stay there till the Friday (then get train back to Milan and fly home.
What I am hoping is that you can provide suggestions of places that might be suitable. We have been to Venice twice in the last year so going back a third time might be a bit too much so soon and we have been to Milan on numerous occassions. We like the buzz of a large town or city and I had originally thought of somewhere like Bologna or Genoa (dont mind three hours on a train, esp as we would only be going back as far as Milan). Any thoughts or recommendations on one or other or indeed on some other good sized town that might provide enough to do and see for three days?
Many thanks for your help
