3 Week Trip to Italy in December, advice needed!

Jump to last reply

Me and my boyfriend are traveling to Italy in December. We will be arriving in Venice on Dec. 12 and leaving from Rome on Dec 30. We are planning on exploring Venice for a couple of days and then traveling to Florence and Tuscany for a couple of days and then to Rome. This is our first opportunity to see a new culture and experience a new country, however, we do not want to cram a lot of things into the whole trip. We are looking for a fun and relaxing vacation.

We are extremely interested in visiting smaller towns that are not touristy. We were hoping to see Cinque de Terre, however we realize that the weather is going to make that pretty impossible. Any suggestions on other costal towns or beautiful sites like that one to see? We are trying to research and have read so many posts on this forum, but we do not even know where to begin. I know the weather will be cold and wet often, so we want to have options of places to see and do in order to not miss out on something in case the weather causes us to change our plans. We are both 21 and open to anything! Also, we are hoping to go on a wine tour or two in tuscany, but I do not know if this is available in December? Basically, we just want to see beautiful Italy and have a wonderful time exploring. Thank you in advance for your advice!!
