12 days in Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi All - I will be traveling to Italy with my daughter (28yrs old) leaving JFK on Sun. aug 28th arriving Rome at 10am on the 29th. We return via Rome on Fri Sept 9th at 2pm.
Here's a tentative itinerary we have planned.
4 nights in Rome arrival the 29th leaving for Venice on 9/2 via Eurotrain; 3 nights in Venice leaving on the 5thSept (again via train) to Florence - 3 nights in Florence leaving for Rome late afternoon on the 8th Sept to return to the states in the afternoon of the 9th, Sept.
One is this doable? We would also like to be able to get side trip in to Pisa if possible.
Did not do arrive and depart different cities due to airfare increase. We are already booked via Delta/Alitalia
Any feedback as to how to tailor this itinerary to accomplish the most and any suggestions for moderate places to stay (safe, clean maybe restaurant/bar on premise or nearby) in all three cities would be greatly appreciated.
I am thinking a trip to a vineyard would be pushing things a bit - am I right? Would consider renting a car but only for a day trip or so. Do not want my daughter spending all her time driving around. (since she doesn't like my driving :) )
We love ancient ruins, UNESCO sites, churches etc., some museums (not too many) good food and wine. Shopping is not a high priority but a little would be nice. Any help, suggestions, beware ofs etc would be appreciated.
