13 Days in Italy: Virgin to Europe - Help with Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are newly weds and we are planning a trip to Italy this Fall. We definitely can use some help with expert travelers advice.

Before I list a rough draft of our itinerary for advice, I'd like to say that we are interested in seeing architecture, nature, coastline, food/culture, some museums and definitely famous piazzas. We'd like to travel the entire trip via train, buses and the occasional taxi cab. If possible, we'd like to avoid driving (renting car). Can I repeat? We Love food! Any advice where to eat is very very much appreciated.

Here we go! This is a draft overview of our itinerary. Please provide your expert advice on how to improve our travels, if it's realistic, can we avoid car rental?, anything we should alter to include additional places you think is amazing, anything we should exclude, anything worth mentioning to catch on the way, etc.

Sat, Sep 1: Arrive in Venice 7 PM, poke around a bit and have dinner
Sun, Sep2: Spend day in Venice, catch 6:30 PM mass at San Marco cathedral
