I am going on a solo trip to Italy this September. It will be my first time there and I am very excited. Originally, I was planning to spend a few weeks in the Dolomites (I could spend months in the mountains!), but then people starting giving me suggestions of other amazing places, and I got overwhelmed. Now I am in this mode where I'd love to see a lot (Rome, Naples, Florence, Verona, Siena, etc) but also feel inclined of staying somewhere in Tuscany for 2-3 weeks and do day trips to the big cities instead.
I am learning Italian and would love to stay in a place where I could socialize and experience the unhurried life of Italians instead of running around checking off the tourist list... Should I stay at one of the agriturismi, you think?
Could anyone please recommend what I could do with my time in Italy?
I love exploring, hiking, cooking and eating, gardening, art and architecture but not so much shopping or lounging on the beach.
