10 Days in Italy - Need Unique Ideas Please!

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip with a friend for end of June for 10 days (excluding first and last day for travel) for somewhere in Italy. We are flying in from different place and will either fly into Milan or Rome. We could really use some suggestions on where to go in Italy!

We are thinking of Tuscany for 5-7 days plus another destination/region....It will be both of our first trip to the Italian country side.

Here are some criteria:

- We won't be visiting Venice, Rome and Amalfi during these 10 days. Friend will likely go to Rome on her own at he end of our 10 days together.
- Open to check out Milan if we're flying in there but I've always heard from friends that there isn' much to see in Rome. Thoughts?
- I've been to Florence a few times but don't mind visiting it again if it serves as the gateway to Tuscany


What we like:
- the road less traveled (not really in the mood to see a gazilllion tourists!)
- Luxurious B&Bs (doesn't have to be over the top but we do like to stay in nice places!prefer not to stay in hotels unless it has character and locally owned!)
- Great food (my friend is vegetarian though)
- Beautiful landscape
- Want to see the real italian country side or other beautiful Italian towns (FYI - I love the Dordogne - would love to experience something rural and rustic like that in Italy)

Questions:
- How long should we stay in Tuscany?
- What's another good location/region to add on to our tuscany stay for this 10 day
- If we don't go to Tuscany, what other parts of Italy would you recommend?

Many thanks in advance for your help!! Looking forward to your suggstions :)
