Hello there, I am travelling with my family to Italy in June 2014, for nearly six weeks.
This time we land in Milan, we like to stay in family/apartment style places for 5- 10 days per place and use this as a base to rest and see a few sights and really get a feel of the place.
Could anyone recommend where to go and stay from landing in Milan- would it be feasible to travel onto Verona? Is it too far from the Milan airport?
Or is there a smaller town from Milan that we should stay at like Belagio?? If we were to base ourselves in Verona for 5 days is there much to see? Is it far to the Lake Como district?( for day trips)
I am thinking we would proably pick up a hire car once in Verona/
Basically - where is a good place to start- as we know we need to finish in Rome to depart.
With thanks Virginia
