2 weeks in Italy

Jump to last reply

My 24 y/o daughter & I will be spending 15 days in Italy in June, first time ever in Europe. The flight is into Milan Malpensa, basically because it was a good price and direct (not booked yet). Initial plan was to rent a car, drive to Florence for 2 nights, then out to Tuscany for 5 nights. Now I'm told not to drive in southern Italy so I'm looking at the train pass options to reach Rome, then Naples/Pompeii & climb Mt. Vesuvius! Then a fast train to Venice for 2 nights before heading back to Milan. I'd rather fly into Florence but too expensive.
So how or where can I drop the car and get a train to Rome?
Should we take a train from Malpensa airport to Florence, or drive?
If taking trains, then we could stay close to center city in B&Bs.
Looking at the Euro Rail, they have options for passes, discounted for 2 people and flexible with when and where to go. And fast.
So much to learn and any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks! & Happy New Year!!
