1st Time in Italy - 10-12 Days

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Europe and at his request, beginning with Italy. We know that we would like to do Rome and the Amalfi Coast but are a bit confused as to what else to do since we have received conflicting opinions from friends about Venice and Florence.

We enjoy culture, love history, but are not big art lover. We also love outdoor sports like scuba diving, biking, kayaking, etc..

We care nothing about seeing the Vatican and understand Rome could take up a considerable amount of our time but we really only want 2 days there, 3 if you include the arrival day. We are open to flying out of Naples but were told by friends that the airport has some issues (opinions appreciated about this)

We also don't need to cram everything into this trip. We are finally at that place where we will be doing a trip every year or two.
