Hired a Car.Drove to Florence (5 days).Drove to Verona (one night).Drove to Venice (4 days).Drove back to Rome (5 days with a very loooong day trip to Naples and Pompai)went back to milan a few yrs later and it was boring. just a large, expensive, industrial city.

    1. Wow Robin! Sounds like you are braver than most – driving so much in Italy! We find the public transport system much easier and less stressful than driving (and parking!) here. Hopefully we’ll get to meet you on your next trip here. Best regards, Jade at Artviva
