My husband and I are torn between these three cities for vacation in September. We will rent an apartment, and I will be attending a language program for three of the weeks. Each city on our list has at least one school that appears to fit my needs. My husband will relax and wander while I’m in class from 9:00 to 1:00, so he would enjoy any of these cities. The schools have optional afternoon activities for both of us, so we aren’t really looking for things to do in the city itself. On weekends we plan to take the train to nearby cities to have lunch and spend the afternoon. Food and wine are important and we prefer small, informal, affordable restaurants. We will be doing some cooking and prefer to buy our produce at outdoor markets. I know Genoa is a very large city, but our research suggests staying inside the walls puts it more on par with a smaller city. Can anyone offer any thoughts that will help us make a decision on which city would be more enjoyable to stay in for a month? Are any of these cities more pedestrian friendly than the others? Thanks.
