15 Day Itinerary Help Needed for Trip to Italy December 22 - January 5

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I need help planning my husband and I's dream vacation to Italy this Winter. We are looking to plan a romantic and relaxing vacation in Italy before we start our family. I would appreciate any and all advice.

I have two rough draft itineraries:

Trip 1:
December 21: Depart LAX at 8:35
December 22: Arrive in Rome at 7:35pm (check into Albergo del Senato)
December 23: Explore Rome (What to do first?)
December 24: Rome – Vatican City (Would LOVE to go to midnight mass. Need advice)
December 25: Rome – (Is everything closed on Christmas day? Need advice on what to do)
December 26: Rome – (day excursion advice needed).
December 27: Depart Rome in the afternoon for Florence/Tuscany. This is where I get a
little lost. Not sure if I should stay a few nights in the country side and a few nights
in central Florence. Can you easily get to downtown Florence from the countryside
of Tuscany? (Side note: My husband would rather not rent a car). Hotels I am
looking at staying at are: Hotel Davanzati (Downtown Florence) and Mueble il
Riccio (Montepulciano). I also looked a few castles: Castell di Gabbiano and
Castello di Bibbiono
December 28: Florence/Tuscany (Day excursions/activities needed)
December 29: Florence/Tuscany (Day excursions/activities needed)
December 30: Florence/Tuscany (Day trip to Pisa?)
December 31: Florence/Tuscany (Recommendations for NYE?)
January 1: Depart Florence/Tuscany….At this point I am COMPLETELY lost. I really
want to make my way South and Explore Naples, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. I’ve read that Pompeii can be a day trip from Sorrento, correct?
January 2: (Help)
January 3: (Help)
January 4: (Help)
January 5: Depart back to LAX. For some reason flights are INSANE back to LAX from
Naples. Should we take the train back to Rome and flight of Rome?

Trip 2: (much of this is the same as Trip 1, but instead of heading South to Naples, etc., we would take an overnight train to Paris on January 1.
December 21: Depart LAX at 8:35
December 22: Arrive in Rome at 7:35pm (check into Albergo del Senato)
December 23: Explore Rome (What to do first?)
December 24: Vatican City (Would LOVE to go to midnight mass. Need advice)
December 25: (Is everything closed on Christmas day? Need advice on what to do)
December 26: (day excursion advice needed).
December 27: Depart Rome in the afternoon for Florence/Tuscany. This is where I get a
little lost. Not sure if I should stay a few nights in the country side and a few nights
in central Florence. Can you easily get to downtown Florence from the countryside
of Tuscany? (Side note: My husband would rather not rent a car). Hotels I am

December 28: Florence/Tuscany (Day excursions/activities needed)
December 29: Florence/Tuscany (Day excursions/activities needed)
December 30: Florence/Tuscany (Day trip to Pisa?)
December 31: Florence/Tuscany (Recommendations for NYE?)
January 1: Take train from Florence to Paris
January 2: Paris
January 3: Paris
January 4: Paris
January 5: Depart Paris at 1:00 in the afternoon for LAX (found a pretty cheap flight @ around $750.00)….

Thanks again for all the help and advice. So stressed out about this!
