Key dates of my Italy trip

13/8 Brisbane-Hong Kong
20/8 Hong Kong-London; London-Milan
16/9 Rome-Hong Kong
28/9 Hong Kong-Brisbane

I am planning to visit Milan/Lake Como/Bergamo, Verona/Bologna, Tuscany/Florence/Pisa, Cinque Terra, Assisi/Orvieto, the Amalfi Coast and Rome.

Hopefully, I can squeeze in a short China trip during my second stopover in Hong Kong.


Although I've been to Europe a number of times before, this coming trip will be my first encounter with European summer.

Late August must be a busy time for air travel. Both the Australia-HK and HK-Europe legs were very full and expensive. Took quite an effort to finalise a reasonably priced flight plan.
