Where to go for 1-2 days from Nanjing?

We are planning a business strip to Nanjing. We won't have very much free time, but will have a few days to explore nearby. Is there someplace not too far away that is worth visiting for a couple days? Also interested in good day trips from Nanjing.

Besides attractions in Nanjing, look into Yangzhou, Suzhou or Tongli.

Hello Lisamann. Since 1-2 days are not that much time, so I recommend one place only. Yangzhou as Jean suggested is good option. There you can visit Geyuan Garden or Heyuan Garden which are of typical Chinese architectural style in old times. There is also Jinghang cannal passing through Yangzhou whereas Jinghang cannal was very important for transportation before. Last but not least, try to get some suggestions from your hotel for local restaurants where locals frequent! It would be a lovely place to go in spring.
