1st time traveler-Planning a trip to Italy..Help!!!

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone! I'm in the process of planning a trip to Rome-Venice-Florence. The trip would be for a week, and the travel date would be sometime mid-May because this is the only time I can travel before beginning grad school. I've never traveled internationally before and I am beyond excited! Initially, I was going to use the website europeandestinations.com to book the trip, but after reading how so many people on this forum have had success in planning their own trips, I've been motivated. I'm just nervous that I'll leave some important aspect of the trip out. I guess I just want some advice on how to plan the trip, choosing the most decent hotels, and knowing about how much money will be needed. We are definitely traveling on a budget!

Travelers: me and my boyfriend mid-20s

What we enjoy: Wine and food - We plan on drinking a lot and eating a lot. We aren't picky eaters and we don't have a lot of money.

The details: We plan on flying into Rome, staying there for 2 days, taking a train to Florence, staying for 2 days, taking a train to Venice (2 days), and flying out of Venice. We would want hotels that are close to many of the popular tourist attractions because we do not plan on renting cars.

I'm not really sure all the sites we'll visit but we'll figure it out later. Is a good idea to visit 3 places in only a week, or should we only visit 2??!
Any information would be helpful.. Thanks everyone!!!
