Any warning signs for Italy itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi. Our family of 5 is travelling to Italy in June/July this year. Our accomodation has all been booked so if I have messed up on that it's too late to change. I only discovered forums after I had made the bookings. So what i really need is for people to check our plans, give advice on day trips, travelling from place to place and any warning signs i should be aware of, like long days travelling, too many day trips etc. Here is our basic itinerary.
25th June : Arrive Venice 10.50 am. Stay in San Marco for 3 nights. Will probably include island trips to Burano and Murano for 1 day and the other full day see the sights in San Marco, Rialto etc

28th June: Depart by train to Verona. Stay 1 night. The main aim is to see Juliet's balcony and maybe 1 other sight.

29th June: Depart by train to Varenna. Catch ferry to Bellagio. Stay 2 nights. Explore the town and maybe do a ferry ride on lake to get a general feel for the lake. Or should we just stick to Bellagio.

1 July: Ferry to Varenna, catch train to Florence. Pick up hire car and drive to San Gimignano. Stay for 5 nights. Whilst there, do day trips which would include Pisa, Volterra, Chianti wine region and Siena. And maybe train back to Florence for a day trip if possible?

6 July: Depart San Gimignano and drive to Orvieto. Maybe stop in at Montepulciano and Montalcino on the way. Stay 4 nights. Do day trips, which would include Assisi, Spoleto,Perugia.

10 July: Depart for Rome by train. Stay 4 nights. See the main sights in Rome and hopefully make a trip to Tivoli as well.

How does this sound? Am I being realistic in our day trips?
Any advice would be appreciated.
