13 days in Italy...need help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for advice from anyone who's done the whirlwind tour of Italy, as I'm planning to do with my fiance for our honeymoon. If you can manage to read through this post, I commend you and appreciate it!

On the itinerary are the big spots: Rome, the Tuscany region, Florence and Venice. We're going rent a car, and we're flying in and out of Rome. My original plan was Rome, then Tuscany, then Florence, then Venice... drop the car off in Venice and take a train back to Rome.

I've already taken travel time into consideration, and my original schedule is as follows:

Day 2: Arrive in Rome around Noon/Early afternoon
Days 3-4: Rome
Day 5: Leave Rome, arrive in Tuscany
Days 6-7: Tuscany (not quite sure of any exact locations yet)
Day 8: Leave Tuscany, arrive in Florence
Day 9: Florence
Day 10: Leave Florence, arrive in Venice
Day 11: Venice
Day 12: Leave Venice, back to Rome
Day 13: Depart Rome for home

I do realize this is A LOT to do in 13 days...believe me, we're up for the challenge!

My biggest concern right now is that I won't have enough time in Rome. I'm starting to wonder if I should add another full day in Rome, and sorta combine Tuscany & Florence since they're basically the same region, and then subtract a day from there to add to Rome. We want to stay in a countryside hotel in Tuscany - we consider this the "relaxing" part of the trip, filled with wine & food tastings - so perhaps find a hotel in the countryside closer to Florence so we can make that a day trip?

If anyone has any advice/tips, I'd be so grateful! Thanks for reading!
