We are a couple going to Italy for 6 nights by end of September. This is our first Italy trip and we will go to Switzerland after Italy. We mostly want to cover the popular tourist spots/cities so our tentative plan is to spend 3 nights in Rome ( want to drive around the amalfi coast area one day) , 1 night in Florence and 2 nights in Venice.
1. Is this 3-1-2 night plan is advisable or should we consider any other alternate plans (like spending 2 nights in Rome and 1 extra night in Naples or Florence)?
2. Other than driving through the Amalfi Coast route, mostly thinking about taking train and city transport to explore the attraction. Is that a good idea?
3. For Rome to Florence and Florence to Venice train travel, should we just buy daily tickets or buy a train pass in advance?
Thanks in advance
