April in Italy - a good idea?

Jump to last reply

Have about 46 hrs. to make a decision about April 3-23 (2013) award tickets to Italy currently on hold. Went to Venice for 8 days the end of April almost 10 years ago and didn't have problems with weather or, that I recall, museum opening hours. However, we have had problems with short museum hours in Greece in May and don't know about the areas in Italy we'll be visiting. Also don't know if trains will be running less frequently.

We should arrive in Rome about 7:30AM and will spend the next 5 nights in Rome. I assume Rome in April won't be a problem but don't know for sure. Then we plan to take a train to Naples or Sorrento for 6 nights. Or 3 nights in Sorrento and 3 in Naples. (We will be using Marriott or Hilton points for hotels on this part of the trip.)

From Naples we will take the train to somewhere in Tuscany, where we have 7 nights before returning to Rome for our flight home. Not sure if we want to spend any nights in Florence, nor if we want to rent a car in Tuscany and drive, or skip the car and pick a town/towns with good train service. Although it isn't essential to know about Tuscany before deciding whether to book the flights or let them go, I'd be happy for any suggestions. (DH and I were in Rome and Florence, 40 years ago when you just walked into things without reservations. Ask us what we remember besides the Academia/David and Moses/Pieta/Sistine Chapel in Rome.)

We like to travel shoulder seasons but don't want to find we can't make it to all the museums/churches/other sites we would like to see due to limited hours. Assume the weather could be anywhere from warm to chilly, rainy or clear, depending on the day or the location.
