First of all, I think there is no chance to plan the perfect Northern Italy itinerary in such a short time as a few days only. That’s because this region is so full of culture, landscapes, secrets, stunning places to visit and things to do in Northern Italy, that you’ll probably need at least a few weeks to complete this kind of a holistic tour of Italy.

Nevertheless, we can still try to discover this region by small Northern Italy tours, step-by-step. Visiting this part of a country in a short trips will be perfect for you if you have a limited amount of time.

The Northern Italy itinerary which I describe below was not my first trip to this region. You can read about my alternative Northern Italy travel from Milan to Como, Varenna, and Bergamo, by clicking here (perfect for shorter city breaks!).

In this article, I show you the best places to visit in Northern Italy from Bologna, via Venice, Verona, Lake Garda, and ending up in Bergamo again. You’ll find here also some tips about transportation, food, and packing for this charming trip!

How to get from Venice to Verona and beyond: Italy trip transport

The map below represents my Northern Italy itinerary which I made in September 2019. I started a trip with a morning flight from Warsaw to Bologna and ended it up with an evening flight from Bergamo to Gdańsk.

Thanks to conducive flights hours found with Skyscanner we were able to spend the whole 7 days on our Italy tour holidays. Click below to check your own flight opportunities on Skyscanner.

To travel on land (and water) we mostly used Flixbus and local transport. Here’s how my journeys looked like, including approximate prices:

  • from Bologna to Venice: Flixbus (5,8€ per person)
  • from Venice to Verona: Flixbus (8,1€ per person)
  • from Verona to Sirmione on Lake Garda: bus no LN026 (4,9€ per person)
  • from Sirmione to Desenzano del Garda: local ferry (3,0€ per person)
  • from Desenzano del Garda to Bergamo: regional train (7,9€ per person)

Flixbus made a really good job of connecting bigger cities in Europe. Their prices vary depending on a day but are still affordable in comparison with Italian trains. I recommend you downloading their app for travel to keep your tickets in an electronic version. Plus, you’ll be always informed where your bus currently is. Click here to find your best Flixbus connection.

Train travel in Italy is something that I appreciate. The railway network is well spread through the whole country and traveling by this transport is usually associated with great views. In most cases, you can buy your tickets directly on the station to keep your flexible schedule. But if you wish, you can purchase tickets directly on Trenitalia.

From Verona to Sirmione bus tip: you’ll find the LN026 route on Google Maps. But the bus stops in Verona don’t always have this bus indicated on the schedule. But don’t worry, the bus will come. You can buy tickets directly on board.

The schedule and prices for Lake Garda ferries you can find on their official website by clicking here.

Alternatively, you can always rent a car if you want to make a real Northern Italy road trip. I’m pretty sure you won’t have any problems with finding a nice deal in this country.

Useful Italy travel tips

Best time to visit Italy

I planned my Northern Italy itinerary for mid-September. Although it’s still crowdy, it’s much better than summer months because kids are already in school. So at this time, you’ll meet only adult travelers. The weather is still perfectly warm, so you can even catch some tan.

I am pretty sure Italy is perfect for traveling up to late October and even early November. Alternatively, late Spring also is a great choice.

How to find accommodation

Italy is not the cheapest country but even so, you can still find some great deals. Planning a trip to Italy is really not that hard. Below I show you the places where I stayed personally. In Venice or Lake Garda, most of the places to stay are expensive but, luckily, there are some more affordable alternatives.

I book my hotels with where, if I’ll do good research, I usually find nice deals. Notice that in Italian hotels you’ll most probably need to pay a city tax at the reception desk which usually is not included in the whole booking price. It is around 1-3€ per person per night.

A great alternative is Airbnb. I used it to find a room in Bologna in a common apartment with Italian flatmates. Airbnb is great if you want to take a sneak peek of real local life. Click here to grab a discount of 23€ for your first Airbnb reservation!

Languages and culture in Northern Italy

The official language is of course Italian. But in most touristic places people used to speak English as well, at least a few words. In the Northern part of the country, German also is a widely heard language because it’s a great travel destination for people from Germany.

Italians from the North are well known for their elegance and sophistication. They are kind and gentle but sometimes will keep you in a distance (especially if it comes to waiters). They appreciate good manners and respect, especially in Venice. So remember to act respectfully while taking photos next to important buildings and people living nearby.

What to eat in Northern Italy

That’s a vast topic. Italian food definitely deserves a separate post. Fans of pasta and pizza won’t be disappointed.

What is worth known if it comes to this region is that in Bologna you will not find spaghetti bolognese as we know it in the rest of the world. If you wish to have a meal like a local you should look for tagliatelle al ragù. The main difference is not only in the sauce itself but also in the pasta type. Tagliatelle is wider than spaghetti and keeps the heavy meat sauce stick on it. This rule doesn’t work that well outside Bologna, wherein almost any restaurant we’ll find spaghetti as we know it. Probably because of touristic influences.

Personally, I love focaccia. And almost every time I ate it in Italy, it was just perfect. It’s easier to find focacceria further to the North, around lakes, in Milan, and Bergamo. It’s similar to pizza but dough is thicker and the whole meal is prepared on big rectangle sheets and cut in smaller pieces. Perfect for lunch!

Hawaii focaccia in Italy

The special attention goes to Italian breakfasts. Local inhabitants used to take a quick breakfast in the cafeteria, sometimes even without sitting down, so al banco. The traditional breakfast like this includes coffee (espresso or cappuccino) and brioche – a sweet pastry similar to French croissants.

The most popular drink to try in Northern Italy is Aperol Spritz. It’s mixed of chilled Prosecco, Aperol, and soda water served with ice cubes and slices of orange.

In many places in Northern Italy cities, you’ll find small fountains with drinking water. Local people used to drink from there even with hands, as a quick refresh in a rush. So taking a refillable water bottle with you will be a great idea for your trip to Italy and will keep you hydrated all day long.

Trip to Italy cost – Prices of food:

  • Pasta: from 8€ for spaghetti Aglio, olio e peperoncino to 13€ for ravioli with ham and cheese
  • Pizza: from 6€ for Margherita to 12€ for fancy ingredients in touristic places
  • Pizza slice: 2-4€
  • Focaccia: 3-5€ for a big slice
  • Coffee al banco: 1-1,5€
  • Brioche al banco: 1-1,5€
  • Aperol Spritz: 2,5-3,5€ in local restaurants, up to 5€ in touristic places
  • Gelato (ice-cream) in a cone: 1,5-5€ depending on size, scoops, and place

Italians have a specific way of tipping for service. In most of the restaurants and many cafeterias you’ll find a word coperto on the menu and on your bill. It’s a fee that is firm for each place and counts per each person enjoying the meal. The amount of coperto depends on the standard of the place. In an ordinary restaurant with non-sophisticated tables, you’ll pay probably 1-1,5€. In more elegant places, with beautiful service and excellent views, coperto might be even 3-4€ per person. The standard is usually 2€.

In addition to coperto, if you enjoyed your meal, you can also leave servizio as a standard tip.

Al banco, which I mentioned previously, is a way to avoid paying for coperto if you wish to have a small coffee. Then you simply don’t take a seat but have your coffee standing by the bar like many Italians.

Safety in Italy

During a whole trip to Italy, I felt extremely safe. The places I visited in this Northern Italy trip were lively and full of people even in the late evening. So together with my boyfriend, we felt secure all the time.

Nevertheless, you should be aware of scammers and pickpockets, especially in places like Venice. Being too careless might end up with losing a wallet, credit card, phone, or documents.

7 Days of Northern Italy Itinerary:

Northern Italy Itinerary Day 1-2: Bologna

We started our adventure in Bologna. The airport is located nearby the city and offers city buses (Aerobus) which can take us to the center for 6€. But it’s the fastest way to get there with buses routing every 11 minutes.

Bologna is a big university city. So it’s not surprising that the evening and nightlife is blooming there. The whole city center is filled with restaurants, cafeterias, and bars offering delicious food, and all possible types of drinks.

But Bologna is also a great place for travelers and culture freaks. You can wander there for hours below red arcades, visiting its monuments, churches, hidden gems, and towers. The most recognizable Two Towers – taller one called Asinelli and the leaning one called Garisenda – are the symbol of this city.

Due Torri in Bologna, in Italy

On day one of your trip you can enjoy the following activities:

  • visit Piazza Maggiore – the central square of the city located just next to the most famous Church of San Petronio
  • discover the Anatomical Theatre of the Archiginnasio – the reconstructed lecture hall from the XVII century were medical students used to learn about the human anatomy by watching the dissection made by a professor on a white table
  • explore the city on your own rhythm – Bologna is well-known for almost 40-km-long porticoes creating the areas of shadow and spaces for social life
  • enjoy tagliatelle al ragù and Aperol Spritz for your late dinner to feel the atmosphere of the city

For day two of your Bologna trip you can copy our schedule:

  • morning visit to Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca – the Sanctuary is located outside the main city but it’s unique; to take a long walk to the Sanctuary’s hill you can use the portico consisting of 666 arches and being the world longest covered walkway; from Sanctuary you get a stunning view of the whole region
  • from the Sanctuary you can take a bus back to the city directly to the Luigi Cattaneo Anatomical Wax Museum – the collection is located in the building of Bologna University and the entrance is free of charge – the wax models of human body and diseases were created in the XIX century for needs of medical students; besides the wax models you can see there human skeletons and specimens in formalin; the collection is interesting but not dedicated to people of weak nerves
  • after this adrenaline rush, it’s time to visit some spiritual places like the basilica of Santo Stefano – I think one of the prettiest one I saw; the interior is dark and gloomy but sophisticated and stunning in details; definitely worth seeing
  • if you’ll get lucky with time you can visit Santuario Del Corpus Domini – a small church hiding one of the most shocking destinations in Bologna – a richly decorated chapel where on a golden throne there rests mummified corpse of Saint Catherine of Bologna
  • for the end of this surprising day, you should definitely collect the last of strength to take an evening walk on Bologna streets and enjoy the sunset painting the buildings with orange light

For many of us, Bologna might remind only pasta but trust me, it’s a city worth visiting. It’s academic and cultural heritage will charm you in the shadow of red porticos.

Bologna offers many more activities to choose from. Since it’s the mecca for food lovers what could be better than taking a class of making home pasta and tiramisu like a local? Or participating in the 3-hour secret food spots tour? Or even enjoy a tour of wine and cheese tasting? Many delicious options!

Where to stay in Bologna?

We chose the affordable Airbnb room in a shared apartment near one of the main streets and the main bus station (perfect place for catching a morning bus from Bologna to Venice). The place was modern but we had everything we needed. Plus the amazing view from the window! Click here to check this room on Airbnb!

Northern Italy Itinerary Day 3-4: Venice

The next stop on our Northern Italy itinerary is Venice! This floating UNESCO World Heritage Site is definitely one of the best Italian cities to visit. Honestly, before going there I was afraid to be disappointed. I imagined it as a trite crowdy place filled only with kitschy souvenirs and thoughtless tourists.

But boy, I was wrong!

Venice totally stole my heart and now I know that spending there only 2 days is definitely not enough.

But even so, try to make the most out of your trip to Venice. Finding your path among the colorful buildings, narrow streets, the net of canals and cute little bridges will bring you unforgettable memories. And discovering all the great viewpoints in Venice is a lot of fun!

And here’s in short what we can do with two days in Venice:

The Canal Grande in Venice - Northern Italy Itinerary

Delight in the city from day one:

  • our first must-see location in Venice was far away from the bus station – this created a wonderful occasion to freely wander among the canals what is the absolute best thing to do in Venice; on the way, of course, we also met lots of gondoliers doing their traditional job; and this experience is probably one of the best things to do in Northern Italy
  • eventually, we reached our destination – Peggy Guggenheim Collection; she was a great art patron who spent the last 30 years of her life in Venice; today her collection of modern art (including masterpieces of Picasso, Duchamp, Dalí, Pollock, and Brâncuși) is open for visitors in her villa near Canal Grande
  • after this trip, the same as we did, you can direct your steps back to the Rialto Bridge – the oldest bridge on Canal Grande – being also one of most touristic places in Venice

Day two for enjoying Venice and sightseeing:

  • even if Vaporetto (water bus) costs some money, it’s worth purchasing the 24-hour ticket for 20€ – it’s a great experience itself, plus, you’ll be able to commute quickly between your destinations
  • start your trip to one of the distant islands; we wanted to go to Burano but we had a Vaporetto switch in Murano which dragged us so much that we never made it to Burano; Murano is an island where traditional Venetian glass is made; here you can buy some original glass souvenirs from Venice
  • next, you can take a Vaporetto back to Venice and another one going to St Mark’s Square; I suggest you take a one that goes there from the outside of the island (no. 2 for instance); this way you’ll be able to see the beautiful Venice’s coast from the other side
  • after hanging around on St Mark’s Square you should definitely visit the Doge’s Palace. This extremely rich building makes a huge impression, especially from the inside. By visiting it, you’ll also have a chance to walk through the famous Bridge of Sighs connecting the Palace with the local prison; to skip the line to the Doge’s Palace, like I did, you can purchase your tickets online by clicking here; in the same price you’ll also get the access to other Venice museums: Correr Museum, National Archeological Museum and Biblioteca Marciana, valid for three months
  • for the spectacular end of your Venice trip, you should take an evening ride with Vaporetto through the whole Canal Grande; the subtle city lights will charm you above the dark waters

As I said before, two days for Venice is not enough. But even during those two days, you’ll be enchanted by its glory and magic.

In the city of canals, you can take some awesome Venice Italy tours such as the unusual walking tour through Mysterious Venice, the sunset boat tour with an aperitif on board, or the local workshop of creating your own carnival mask.

Where to stay in Venice?

The hotels in the islands of Venice might be pricy so we decided to stay on the mainland, in a neighbor city of Marghera, in Jolly Camping in Town. Getting to Venice from this place takes something like 25 minutes including bus no.6 going directly to the island. The camping was in short words awesome, with clean and tidy mobile homes with private bathroom, bar, restaurant and great swimming pool still open in September!

Northern Italy Itinerary Day 5: Verona

Ah, Verona! The romantic background of Romeo and Juliet’s story. Even though those characters were fictional, the city still tempts travelers with its charm.

And besides the tours connected to Romeo and Juliet, the city has to offer much more activities. You can enjoy some of them even in one day:

  • explore the courtyard of Castelvecchio and eventually visit its museum; Verona has a very interesting history because during centuries it was passing from hands to hands
  • enjoy the views of the Adige from Ponte di Castelvecchio – the river surrounding the city makes a great impression, especially on a windy day
  • visit the Arena – the second biggest amphitheater in Italy just after the Colosseum in Rome; this public place is still in use but now, instead of gladiators and wild animals, we can watch there operas and concerts
Ancient Arena in Verona - Planning a trip to Italy
  • sigh and make your romantic wish below the Juliet’s balcony in Casa di Giulietta – in fact, Juliet never lived here since she was a fictional character but the house long times ago was owned by a family of the Dal Cappello which sounds similar to Capuleti – that’s why it was bought by the city authorities and named as the Juliet’s House; today we can visit the museum in this place nad greet the charming statue of Juliet in a small patio below the famous balcony
  • after visiting this most recognizable spot of Verona, it’s time to get lost in the city; wandering on charming streets and eating pizza here and there is a perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon
  • you can also visit some of the most important city churches like Cattedrale di Santa Maria Matricolare or Chiesa di Santa Anastasia

Verona, in fact, has much more to offer for travelers. If you’d have some more time, with ease you’ll find some other great activities like city bike tours or private pasta-making class by locals.

Where to stay in Verona?

I found a cute and affordable room in a guest house of Gabrielli Rooms & Apartments in a walkable distance from the city center. The room was big and nicely equipped. The bathroom was shared but it was not a problem since we were spending there one night only. The staff was friendly and let us leave our backpack a few hours before check-in so we could freely wander in the city. And it was near to the bus stop to our next destination.

Northern Italy Itinerary Day 6: Lake Garda

The whole day no. 6 was dedicated to visiting Lake Garda coast and two charming towns: Sirmione and Desenzano del Garda. Lake Garda is one of the most important lakes in Northern Italy and the biggest one in the whole country.

To get from Verona to Lake Garda, Sirmione, you can take a bus LN026 going to Brescia. It goes directly to the picturesque peninsula on the Southern coast of Garda.

Sirmione is a small town located on a peninsula surrounded by waters of the lake. Even if it’s crowdy with tourists, it’s still worth visiting for a sunny day on the coast after hanging around in bigger cities.

Let Sirmione charm you:

  • already on the entrance, you’ll be surprised by little squares filled with restaurants and gelaterias – it’s the perfect time to have a snack after a bus ride
  • then I propose you to take a peaceful walk among the Eastern side of the peninsula – next to Scaligero Castle you can turn to a small beach and continue your walk among a path hanging above the lake; eventually, you’ll reach a pier and a public park Tomelleri
  • from the park, it’s easy to reach the biggest attraction in the town – Grotte di Catullo – the ruins of ancient Romanian villa with a pool, gardens, and all the facilities that a luxury old-time mansion must have; the entrance costs 8€ but it’s worth the views and hanging around among pretty large ruins
A girl walking among the ruins of ancient Roman villa in Grotte di Catullo in Sirmione, Italy, Lake Garda
  • after this long walk, you can take a rest on the flat stones immersed in water just next to ruins and contemplate the beauty of the surroundings
  • by coming back to the city center via the main road, you’ll see the yellow villa where Maria Callas – the famous opera singer – used to spend vacations

You can spend the rest of the day in Sirmione eating or even enjoying views from a motorboat on a private tour, or, in the afternoon, you can take a ferry to the next destination – Desenzano del Garda.

Desenzano is another small city, but it’s perfect if you want to take relief from tourists and simply enjoy a delicious meal, Aperol Spritz, and evening walk among charming buildings. In the city center, you’ll find a small marina surrounded by colorful facades. An ideal place to spend a peaceful evening.

We chose a budget-friendly room in Hotel Primavera. Maybe it wasn’t fancy but was enough for our needs and a one-night stop.

Northern Italy Itinerary Day 7: Bergamo

Bergamo is a city that is often underrated by tourists traveling from its airport to Milan which is located only 50 km away. But it’s a place worth visiting, with many historic spots to see and secret gems to discover.

Take a look on my Milan – Lake Como – Varenna – Bergamo 4 day itinerary as an alternative for Northern Italy itinerary.

How to spend a day in Bergamo?

  • on your way from the train station, I suggest you direct your steps to the older part of the lower city and have some snack; prices in the main old city of Bergamo will be higher but here, in Città Bassa, focaccia is equally delicious and even cheaper! There is a small focacceria near Basilica of St. Alexander in Column with really tasty pieces
  • after filling your belly with delicious Italian food you can take a walk to Città Alta – the ancient part of Bergamo; the walk will take ~25 minutes but it might be exhausting so alternatively you can take a funicular going up to the city for only 1.30€ one way; the inconvenient is that there is almost always a huge tourist queue to the funicular but the views from the wagon are stunning
  • once you’re up, it’s the time to lose yourself in the old Bergamo; eventually, direct your steps to Piazza Vecchia – the main square of the city – and continue your walk among the ancient churches
  • if you would like to take some relief on this last day of your trip, you can find some peace in a secret spot of Bergamo – the botanical garden of Lorenzo Rota – open for free during a few hours each day
  • after walking the city it comes a time for a sweet treat – to get a glimpse of history you should visit the restaurant and pasticceria La Marianna – a place where the stracciatella ice-cream taste was invented in 1961; it’s a perfect place to have delicious ice-cream and dense hot chocolate
  • your last walk in Bergamo should lead you to the Venetian Walls – the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the exterior walls protecting Città Alta; from there you can observe wonderful sunsets and the picturesque view of the rest of the city
Straciatella ice-cream from La Marianna in Bergamo - the place where straciatella taste was invented

From Città Alta you’ll find a direct bus to the airport, Orio al Serio. The ride takes around 20 minutes and costs 2.40€.

Bergamo is a perfect place to both start and finish many trips to Northern Italy. The city is walkable but also well organized with transport. Additionally, it offers many more attractive things to do.

Where to stay in Bergamo?

There is a great evening flight connection from Bergamo to my home airport – Gdańsk. So even though I was twice in Bergamo, I didn’t stay there for a night. But even so, I made small research of alternative stays in Bergamo for you:

What to pack for trips to Northern Italy?

I love traveling light and I suggest you do the same for your Italy travel itinerary.

Together with my boyfriend, we managed to pack our stuff in only one cabin backpack + one drawstring back bag. And my small purse. We even packed an umbrella there and a big lunch box. And we still had someplace for souvenirs (mmm delicious Bergamese salami).

We used to travel with a CabinZero Vintage backpack. It’s perfect as the cabin luggage in airplanes and I love it’s flexibility. For me, it’s a great backpack for city breaks, and here you can read my full review of it.

For our trips, we love to bring a drawstring back bag. We have one made of thick cotton so it’s durable and light at the same time. It’s perfect to carry on the daily trips when our main baggage rests in a hotel room.

Another must-have for the Italian trip is a phone/camera tripod. Recently, I bought Joby Gorillapod 500 which is super small and light and fits the gear up to 0,5 kg, both phone, and camera (remember to purchase a special handle as well! – I use Manfrotto). Previously I had a similar tripod but in a cheap version. Not only it was not able to hold the weight of my phone but it also broke after a few uses. Joby, on the opposite, is reinforced with steel and until now it works much better also as a selfie stick.

Packing for Italy in September - backpack, rolled clothes, and electronics

To Italy, you should definitely bring your own refillable water bottle and reusable cutlery. In the whole country, you’ll have many opportunities to use them.

Regarding the clothes, well I’m not a fashion blogger. And in fact, fashion is not my priority. But my boyfriend’s influence (he is a men’s fashion enthusiast) changed my travel wardrobe a little bit. So what can I recommend you to bring to Italy is a blazer! I brought with me my wool blazer and not only I felt warm in the evenings but I also felt more like a local, and not a tourist. My boyfriend chose a light linen blazer and we both were very happy with them.

I also cannot be more happy with bringing my best and proven sailing shoes. My legs were exhausted after hours of walking, yes, but my feet didn’t hurt that much. Thanks to Sperry Top-Sider I did not have a single clavus. Even if these shoes are called sailing shoes, I think there are no better ones for traveling and lots of walking.

If you wish to take a sneak peek of what I pack to my eco-friendly toiletry bag – click here!

Northern Italy cities – the places to be

The most difficult thing in planning the Northern Italy itinerary is to choose which Northern Italy cities to visit in a limited time that you have.

The one thing is sure: no matter which trip you’ll choose you’ll be happy with charming streets, delicious food, and rich culture.

So open up your Italy trip planner, copy one of my Italian itineraries and plan your next adventure!
