A Quick Tour of Italy

Jump to last reply

Please tell me if this sounds reasonable. I am travelling with a 14-year-old athlete and she does not sit still for long. While we have been all over the US, this is only our second European trip. We spent a week in Paris last Easter and fell in love with it.

Right now I am looking to fly out on Good Friday and arrive early Saturday morning going into Rome, where we will spend Saturday, Sunday, and Monday touring the Coliseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, St Peter's Basilica, and Sistine Chapel. Since it's Easter, we might want to stop by the Vatican and see the Pope (I have just requested tickets to the Papal Mass on Easter Sunday and have no idea if we will get them or not).

Tuesday morning we will take the train to Florence, see Michelangelo's David and the Duomo, then do an electric bike tour through Tuscany on Wednesday or a side trip to Pisa. The electric bike tour looks fun though so Pisa might be out; we did one in Paris and that was our favorite day by far. This one takes you to a castle and an artisan gelato place where you can have six kinds of ice cream. :) Plus being able to experience the countryside is priceless, especially when you have been packed into a city and museums for a few days. I can already hear myself saying wheeeeee!

Thursday morning high speed rail to Venice, take a gondola ride and do the urban adventure on Thursday night, which takes you to four different places to sample wines and hors' de oeuvres while they show you hidden gems in the city but you feel safe because they are guiding you lol. Fly home Friday either from Venice or after taking high speed rail from Venice back to Rome. So what do you experienced travelers think?
