Amsterdam + Tuscany or Portugal (8 day itinerary recommendations)

Jump to last reply

I looking to plan a trip in mid-April 2016 that includes Amsterdam and either Tuscany or Portugal. The total trip including travel from Los Angeles is 11 so I assume I have 8 full, non intercontinental travel.

The group I'm traveling with wants a combination of city and fun, non-city adventures or activities (i.e. day bike tours, wineries, cooking classes, etc.)

Thinking we'd spend about 3 days in Amsterdam (on either end of trip, based on best flight options) and the balance either touring through Tuscany or seeing a few places in Portugal.

Would love any recommendations if anyone has taken a similar itinerary in the past.

While I don't think we'd need more than 2.5-3 days in Amsterdam, wondering how many days would be ideal in Tuscany (flying into Florence but not really interested in staying there long). Would a visit to Cinque Terra also work within this timing and does it make sense to go there in April?

I'm leas familir with Portugal but it definitely strikes me as a cool and interesting place to visit, and perhaps slightly warmer for that time of year, which is good.

Any advice is welcomed and certainly appreciated.
