12 Days in Italy

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be traveling to Italy for our 20th anniversary. We'll have 12 days on the ground, arriving in Rome and flying back from Venice. (Leaving June 1st. Coming home June 14th).

I started out with an extremely aggressive itinerary based on "Rick Steves Italy" book. But after reading through forums, I realized that we needed to trim down. So I've narrowed it down to two general itineraries:


4 Days in Rome
4 Days in Florence
4 Days in Venice


3 Days in Rome
3 Days in Florence
3 Days in Cinque Terre
3 Days in Venice

Two questions:

1. If I were to include Cinque Terre, would that be too much travel. I realize that's a subjective question. But I'm curious if anyone out there has done it and what their experience was.

2. Is there enough to do in Rome, Florence, and Venice to justify 4 days each?
