7-8 nights for Return Trip to Italy: Venice only, or Venice+ ?

Jump to last reply

I wrote a few months ago asking for help with our return Italy trip in September 2013. At that time, we had 11 or 12 days available for travel and were thinking of at least 3 destinations.

However, due to work schedules, we now only have 7-8 nights in Italy (this is not including travel time.) I know that isn’t ideal, and I would love a longer trip, but if we want to go, that’s what we have to work with.

As mentioned in my previous thread, Venice is a must for us. So here is my question. For 7-8 nights, is it best to stay in Venice the entire time (with the possibility of daytrips by train if time permits), or, should we go to 2 different places? Initially, we were thinking either doing a few days in Florence or the Lakes (have not been to either), and then going to Venice for 4 or 5 nights. But, the more we talk about it, we’re leaning towards spending the entire time in Venice. From what I’ve read on this forum, there is plenty to keep one busy for that timeframe, and we can really settle in and soak up Venice.

On our previous trip, we went to Rome, Tuscany (Chianti area), Orvieto and Assisi.

With our allotted time for this trip, what do you think about spending all of it in Venice?
