Critique my Italy tour, please

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Italy in May and want to work in a number of places.

At this time we have a rough draft and would appreciate feedback. This will be a fairly fast paced trip, but we're ok with that as seasoned travellers (so we think!). I expect we'd drive when leaving Rome but could take the train if it's a better option.

Here's our itinerary:
Day 1 - arrive Rome in morning. See Coliseum and Spanish Steps after lunch.
Day 2 - Vatican City? (morning, then ? in afternoon)
Day 3 - Roam Rome by foot?
Days 4,5,6 - drive to Cinque Terre and explore the area
Day 7 - drive to Florence and explore
Day 8 - Fathom Florence (ideas?)
Day 9 - Drive to Lake Bled, Slovenia (I know, it's a 5 hour drive)
Day 10 - Laze about Lake Bled and area
Day 11 - Lake Bled
Day 12 - Drive to Venice
Day 13 - 20 Sail the Dalmation Coast
Day 21 - fly Home

We're not much into the museum/art scene but would take in some of the "must do" places. We're open to suggestions. Also, do you have hotel/B&B suggestions for any of these areas?
Thanks very much!
