We are a family of 2 adults and an 18 year old son. We are visiting Italy in August flying into Rome and back from Venice. Our plan is to spend a few days in Rome, take the train to Venice, a few days in Venice followed by a week at Lake Garda. I am looking at Lazise or Bardolino as I thought they would be more convenient for Venice and to visit Verona and Padua. We like to stay in self catering accommodation within walking distance of restaurants and shops etc. We hope to be able to hire bikes and cycle along the lake and also take chair lifts and boat trips. Any advice would be gratefully received.
