And where do you squeeze in shabbos?
I think 3 days in VCE over shabbos is nice, esp with other islands, etc.
I guess. I would do Mon-Thu Paris. Thursday night to Venice. Friday, Shabbos in Venice and Sunday Lake Como and fly out of Milan.

I wouldn't argue with that itin, though it depends if you can hit ground running on Monday.

And you have 3 nights in VCE ;)
Hard to avoid 3 nights if you're doing shabbos there.

Or 4 days in Paris and 3 in Venice.

we were thinking of Venice over shabbos. I heard it is nice there on shabbos with good food from gam gam. we dont have to go from Sunday to Sunday, we might leave in middle of the week.

Too long in Venice (we've had this argument already). I'd do 3.5 in Paris, 2 in Venice and a day trip to Lake Como
Do you need to fly to Lake Como? Why only a day trip?

so if we stay in Venice over Shabbos, where else do you recommend? you mentioned other islands.

No. It's 3 hours (to get to the middle of it-Bellagio) from Venice, under 90 minutes north of Milan. There's not a ton to do there but it's stunning

Lake Como looks awesome but otherwise there are islands off VCE to explore like Murano, Burano, Lido, etc.

Would you recommend Nice or rather Lake Como? or just staying in Venice and exploring nearby islands?

Again if you want to do Paris and Venice you can't really do Nice. You can do Lake Como as a day trip. I think 3 days in Venice is too much. Others disagree

Milan has a kosher place I believe. I'd do 2 days In Lake Como to relax and stroll around the various little towns around the lake.
