Itinerary 1 week in italy

I think you will agree with me that if you were looking for the best car routes to travel around Italy you have come to the right place, am I wrong? Go saving because after this article you are going to put me an apartment in Cinqueterre I said, get paper and pen … here we go!

The first of the car tours in Italy that I am going to bring you is a spectacular 12-day tour of Northern Italy starting in Venice and ending in Milan, traveling through authentic Italian gems such as Bologna, Verona, Bergamo, the mosaics of Ravenna, Padua, Ferrara and the lakes of Garda and Como. A great trip.

Throughout this spectacular itinerary through northern Italy we will visit incredible places such as the Villa of Balbianello at the foot of Lake Como, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, the villages of Burano and Murano, sunsets like that of the Castle of San Pietro in Verona, among many other places … this route is full of moments and its route would be like this:

The first half of the day will be spent visiting Ferrara (0h 58min). We will have lunch at Il Mandolino Trattoria. After lunch we head to Ravenna (1h) and see the churches with mosaics that are: Basilica di San Vitale, Mausoleum of Gala Placidia and San Apolinar in Clase. We go to sleep in Bologna (1h).

This route starts in Rome and ends in Venice, because this way the round trip flights will be cheaper. You can always do it the other way around, following the directions in the Detailed Route in the opposite direction.

“We had a wonderful trip and in large part thanks to you. We would not have known how to combine so many sites.  It was very easy to follow the directions, the recommended restaurants were all great and we loved the hotels.”

To see the details of each day, you must access the Detailed Route. It includes daily visit planning, how to get to each site, authentic restaurants and all the itineraries geolocated on your mobile.

How to travel Italy from north to south

What we do know for sure is that traveling to Italy on your own means a before and after in the travel experiences of any foreigner who chooses this corner of the world. We do not know a single person who has not loved it. We came back completely in love with its people, its food and its cities. Shall we start?

We recommend the car option, only if you are going to make a route through nearby countries such as Croatia or France. Keep in mind that parking in cities like Milan, Florence or Venice can cost you a lot of money, since the downtown area is restricted to vehicles or is payable.

The big question you will ask yourself when organizing a trip to Italy. As always, it will depend on the days you have available and what you want to see, but we believe that 7/8 days is the minimum you need to enjoy this Mediterranean country.

To travel around Italy we recommend using the train, it is the best option. The stations are located in the center of the cities, besides being a comfortable and inexpensive transport. Calculate that a trip between Milan and Venice has a price of about 20 euros in modern high-speed trains. Check prices and availability on the Trenitalia website.
