Verona and Lake Garda Day Trip from Milan

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Juilianna and the local guide were wonderful for this trip. Verona was a wonderful city to visit and a must see while in northern Italy. Lake Garda was beautiful even though it was violently windy after it had rained that day. I liked that there were only about 12 people on this trip. We had about 2 hours of free time in Verona as well which was a fantastic amount of time to wander around yourself after the tour.

Cinque Terre Day Trip from Milan

Milan, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I'm giving this trip 3 stars for two reasons. 1)I didn't like that there were like 40 people on this trip after going on two smaller tours with only 12 people each. 2)After walking the Love Path to Riomaggiore, we literally only had about 30mins to get through the tunnel and walk around Riomaggiore before having to get back through the tunnel to meet for our train departure. I felt extremely rushed during this time. It was still a great tour with the exception of these two points and you get to see and experience so much (you will be tired and ready to sleep on the way back). Also, skip where the tour guide suggests for lunch in Monterosso and go to the pink restaurant by the water called Ristorante Il Casello. Have the trofie al pesto dish and the best meal of your life...trust me!

Genoa and Portofino Day Trip from Milan

Milan, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a very perfect day trip from Milan. Genoa is a fantastic city although I found it to be slightly difficult to navigate even though I am very good with maps and directions. The first stop on the tour is seeing the city from a lookout which allows you to see the city unfold below you and down to the port. I skipped the local guided walking tour and went on my own to explore the city. I had done some research and there were a few places I wanted to see/spend extra time and places I wanted to try for lunch. You see so much on the drive to Portofino and the ferry ride is very nice. Portofino doesn't have much to see in terms of a town so here is what you absolutely must do when you get there...GO DIRECTLY TO CASTELLO BROWN and PAY THE 5 EURO ENTRANCE FEE. SPEND YOUR TIME THERE TAKING IN THE AMAZING VIEW!!! Just go right there, don't bother with the church or lighthouse...spend your time at the Castle enjoying the view.
