Looking for suggestions on which town to stay in there. Thanks!
Personally, for me Milan is good for a day unless you love fashion. However, Florence, Cinque terre, and Venice are wonderful. Sit? Good god no. Italy is know for stairs, you will get quite the workout. The most relaxing place was Lake Cuomo but even there you don't sit. There is also Rapallo, Santa Margherita, and Portofino, not to be missed. There is a lot for 12 days so I would probably recommend this time to skip Cuomo, travel down to Rapallo and stay there for a couple of days and take the ferry to Santa Margherita and Portofino. From Rapallo go to Cinque Terra and from there do wine country and Florence, then spend at least 2 full days in Venice area before returning.


ETA You mentioned you are going in February. Check the weather and ask the hotels you stay at if you can cancel on short notice as weather can cause mud slides and close the area. Make a backup plan to visit somewhere else if that happens.

Generally in Florence, every place is really central. I rented a place for a few days. Are you looking into getting an apartment or a hotel?

Some of each... depends on how long we will be there but we really don't tend to stay put too long. Usually 1-2 nights in a town or city and we are ready for the next one.
