10 Day First Time Trip to Italy

Jump to last reply

My sister (68), daughter (30) and I (60) are planning a trip from Phila. to Italy arriving in Italy Sept. 2nd and returning on Sept. 10th. My daughter and sister do not care about visiting Venice but I would like to. So my daughter suggests we stay 1 night in Venice.
Then take a train to Florence and stay there 2 nights, then a train to Rome and stay 2 nights then take a train to Sorrento and stay 3 nights. They want to see the Amafi Coast-
She said we would take 1 day for Capri and 1 day for Politano and chill for a half day.
My daughter and sister are not that interested in seeing Tower of Pisa, museums, etc.
My questions are as follows: (1) Is 1 day enough time to spend in Venice? most of what I read said that 2 days was enough time. Not sure what we would miss.
(2) Is 2 nights enough for Florence and what sights should we see there?
(3) I know that we could not see everything in Rome in 2 nights but what should we see
(would like to see the Vatican)
(4) Is 3 nights good for Sorrento? And the things they want to see.
Also, please give some suggestions on places to stay (i.e. nice hotels, b& b's- not break the bank but nice) Also, would like to know some places to eat- local places also that do not break the bank?
I know that ideally 12-14 days would be good but that is all the time we have.
Or should we fly into Rome and reverse the trip? Instead of flying into Venice?
