5 Days in Italy

Jump to last reply

In November, we are visiting Europe for the first time. My husband, 20 year old daughter, and I only have 5 nights and 4 days. Boats are not an option - at least not any in the sea!
My daughter wants to see Florence. What else should we do?
We figured Florence 2 days....and where else???
Cinque Terra? Sorrento? Rome? Naples?
Obviously, we don't want to spend our short time on overly long train rides!
Love to walk, see beautiful sights, not much on museums.
Also, our daughter is studying abroad this semester in Madrid, Spain. Is it worth it for my husband and I to go from USA to Spain for a day and a half and then fly with my daughter to Italy? Or should we just meet her in Italy for the 4 days?
My daughter can leave Spain on a Thursday night, and has to be back on Tuesday night.
My husband and I can leave New Jersey/NY on a Tuesday night, and have to be back by the following Tuesday.
