From Venice to Bergamo
In May 2023, I embarked on an Italian Adventure which took me to many of the best cities and regions of Northern Italy.
The trip started in the iconic city of Venice where I re-acquainted myself after three decades with this world famous city. I stayed on Venice Lido, a short boat transfer across from the heart of the city and San Marco square.
From Venice I hit the railway tracks and took in the cities of Padua and Vicenza. These lesser known cities are a delight and well worth visiting either in their own right or as part of an Italy tour.
South Tyrol & Beyond
After a lovely stop in Vicenza I travelled into the South Tyrol and the remarkable town of Bolzano which offers a mix of both Italian and German culture and cuisine.
From Bolzano, it was to Lake Garda and the popular lakeside town of Desenzano del Garda. This stop included a day trip by boat to Sirmione.
From Lakes To The Cities
My final stop was at the medieval city of Bergamo and its incredible Citta Alta.
