anniversary return trip to Italy - itinerary beginnings

Jump to last reply

Just a little background, DH and I spent our honeymoon in Italy 5 years ago and we have been itching to get back and see some new areas to us (Tuscany) and revisit Rome while we are at it. I have been bouncing back and forth on staying in one location for our Tuscany portion or moving around a little bit. I've also been bouncing on night allowances to Rome/Tuscany. I've narrowed down on what we want to focus on for this trip. Unfortunately we do not have much time, 9 nights total, so we are really limited to what we can accomplish in a short time. We want to see a lot but not go crazy. And we do believe we will return several more times to Italy as we are only in our early 30s, so what we don't see this time can wait for another.

We are aware that we will be there over the Easter weekend. Hoping that will not throw a big wrench into anything...

Friday April 14: Arrive Rome, train to Orvieto, pick up rental car, relax for the night (same B&B as we stayed in for our honeymoon). We spent a few nights here on the honeymoon so we do not need much time here.

Saturday: Visit Civita di Bagnoregio, Parco dei Mostri, drive to Montepulciano, settle in to relax and explore.

Sunday: Explore Val d'Orcia and southern Tuscany area

Monday: Same as above with a visit to Buonconvento for the Easter Monday antiques market

Tuesday: Drive to Siena and spend several hours here. Drive to San Gimignano to spend the evening and night.

Wednesday: Drop the rental car somewhere close to SG (ideas?) and train to Rome

Thursday, Friday, Saturday: Rome

Sunday: Flight out

I do not normally like one night stops but since we've been to Orvieto already, I do not think we need more than that. From what I've read, a night in SG is enough as well. We could always cut the side trip up north to SG/Siena if that's too much, I just thought it would be nice to see SG since we will already have a car.

Do you think we on the right track?
