Day trips from Rome • Orvieto: 1 day or stop overnight en route to Bologna • www.orvietoonline.com/
Frascati • http://wikitravel.org/en/Frascati • 30 minute train from Roma termini train station. Home of Frascati wine. Great interlude looking over Rome. Seems like you are in Tuscany. • I suggest Pane e Tulipanifor great wine and appetizer food in the center. 5 minutes up the stairs from the train station between Piazza Roma and Piazza San Pietro on the left alley way • Il Tettuccio 15 minute walk to the back part of town past Piazza San Pietro but best Mom & Pop trattoria and best food in town. No english here so just say, “Portaquellocheavrestitu.” Inexpensive as well.
En Route North-Florence (Firenze)-2 days • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence • You Gotta Do The Florence Tourist Thing • Siena & San Gimignano we will see Wednesday on the day trip but good overnight interludes from Florence. Take the train or the blue buses. • Stroll Ponte Vecchio
North East Of BolognaVerona & Venice, 3 days Verona: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verona Venice: http://www.comune.venezia.it/flex/cm/pages/ServeBLOB.php/L/EN/IDPagina/1
Trips In Or out Rome & Travel Upward From Milan Milan down the coast to Cinque Terre (good time as September is warm but less tourists) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinque_Terre) • Give yourself 3 good days ion Rome if not more and maybe a day trip to leave the city. • Tuscany 2-3 days • Or split up and back to/from bologna. • Trains are fast in & out of Rome. Fast links south to north Naples>Rome>Florence>Bologna> Venice or Bologna>Milan • Train Info www.trenitalia.it

Fly To Bologna Direct From European Cities AeroportoMarconi-Bologna: http://www.bologna-airport.it/it/?LN=IT Paris Would Be My Choice: I like to stay in San Michele/San Germaine, Paris. Try this boutique hotel. http://www.bucihotel.com/ • Direct from Paris, Madrid, London, Frankfurt and others. • Go to other cities first or after
Italy Travel-Bottom Line • Don’t rush it. • Do small towns when possible • Get lost • When in doubt… get lost again, drink, eat, and people watch. • Dine in the back streets. That’s where the best food is. • You may just meet some new friends & see unexpected places
