2 weeks - late March/early April - ideas welcome!

Jump to last reply

We have flights already booked into and out of CPH from the US so that part is not changeable. We are looking for ideas on itinerary as to how to best use our days and a path to take.

We were originally going to head north to Norway - Stavanger and Bergen. Wanted to take ferry from Hirtshals to Bergen; then head down to Stavanger before heading back to Copenhagen. The ferry one way seems rather expensive. It actually costs more to do it one way vs. a "mini Cruise" on fjordline.com which seems odd. I was thinking we could do the mini-cruise and just get off in Bergen, but not sure this is possible?? We then thought maybe it would be too cold to do this. We were in Scandinavia in mid April in 2011 and lucked out with mild weather. Not sure that will happen again, and I don't care for the cold all that much.

So, to consider other path - in lieu of heading to Norway - we are considering taking Easy Jet from CPH to FCO and spend 2 weeks in Italy. We would have 13 nights in Italy, as I want to head back to Copenhagen 2 days ahead of our flight home.

We are interested in seeing: Florence, Amalfi coast, Rome, Tuscany. Realizing that this may be too much, too spread out for our time frame, we would be flexible as to what to include and exclude.

We also realize that having to return to Rome to fly back to CPH isn't the most efficient use of time, but we'd have to do that to fly on Easy Jet. Their fares are just to good to fly other carriers.

We would prefer trains between major cities and but will rent a car if necessary to travel around Amalfi and/or Tuscany.

Looking for input as to how to best take advantage of the time we have to visit. I have never been to Italy and my husband has - decades ago on a student budget. We love history, architecture, food, art.

We haven't ruled out Norway, so input on that is welcomed as well as Italy.

Thanks~~
