16 NIGHT ITINERARY FOR ITALY AND PARIS- PLEASE HELP

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our first trip to Europe for our 15th Anniversary. We want to see everything but know that this is impossible. I have already booked plane tickets to arrive in Rome and fly home from Paris. Here is what I was thinking but I am afraid it is too much:
1. Arrive in Rome 5 pm and stay 3 nights
2. Rent a car and head to Tuscany for 3 nights
3. 1 night in Florence, return rental car, train to CT
4. 2 nights in Cinque Terre
5. Take train to Venice for 2 nights
6. Take train to Lake Orta or Lake Como, or could rent another car, stay 2 nights
7. Fly to Paris (from Milan) for 3 nights before flying home

My husband really enjoys history, and we both love to hike and bike ride and see beautiful countryside. Art and shopping are NOT priorities.

Should we give up the Lakes or Venice and add days to the other places?
