Central Italy Fall Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I am currently planning a fall trip to Italy with my husband. I went as a teenager with my parents and we visited Rome, Florence, and Venice. My husband has never been overseas and has done limited traveling. We will be going in either October or November 2016 (depending on our work situations) for 2-3 weeks. We want to focus on food, culture, relaxation and sightseeing... trying to find a nice balance for a romantic trip.

After discussion with others who have traveled to Italy and research in books/online, this is what we currently are thinking:

Fly into Bologna, Train to Florence
5 nights in Florence Hotel (sightseeing, churches, museums)
7 nights in Chianti Vacation Rental (day trips to Siena, wineries, relaxing)
7 nights in Bologna Vacation Rental (restaurants, food tours)
Fly out of Bologna

There is so much to see and do, and I want to make the most of our trip to Italy but I know sometimes that means putting less on your list so you can immerse yourself and enjoy more. Has anyone gone to Central Italy with a similar focus? Am I doing my husband a disservice by not including Rome on the itinerary? I absolutely love Rome but I'm wondering if it would be too hectic since we are hoping for a more relaxed, romantic trip.

Any stories or advice from someone who travelled to this region or went on a vacation with this focus would be great appreciated!
