15 days, First trip to Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi

My sister and I are taking our first trip to Italy in May 2012 and have roughly mapped out the following locations:
Rome
Siena
Florence (taking in Chianti as well hopefully)
Cinque Terre
Venice

We plan to fly out from Venice to London, spending a week there before heading home to New Zealand.

We're both nervous about driving on the 'wrong' side of the road and have heard the Italian rail system is pretty reliable and cost effective - any hints here?

We're thinking Rome is a great place to start, before heading north to see Siena, Florence, Cinque Terre and Venice. How would you recommend we split our time (10 days) between these places? Hotel hints? transport recommendations? Must see's? etc etc

Would love your suggestions!
