I am flying in on Monday morning into Milan and have a few days before I need to be in Rome by Friday evening (friend's wedding rehearsal).
I really want to go to: 1) Venice (been before, but want to go again) , 2) Parma, and 3) Bologna. I heard Parma/Bologna have amazing food. If time, I wanted to stop by Florence before ending up in Rome.
I realize this is a lot to do in 5 days, so I wanted to get tips on the order. From Milan, should I go to Parma first, and then Venice, then Bologna? Or from Milan, should I go to Venice first and then Bologna and Parma (then back down toward Rome)?
Any tips would be great.
