Dilemma : Nice one to have...3 nights Florence or 3 nights Torino?

Jump to last reply

i am in the very fortunate position to be planning our 7th trip to Italy.

I had already booked our flights in out of Rome - Oct. 2 -15 when friends of ours just realized that they will be in Italy at the same time and we are now trying to coordinate an itinerary.
My good friend is a wine importer and has some obligations in Piemonte.
When originally booking this trip, I had not planned on being as far north as Torino, but now an trying to plan a trip where we can spend a good amount of time together.

As of now, we are flying into Rome Oct. 3, arriving 10:00 AM and am planning to train to FLorence on the same day.(Have done this in the past)

Would like to spend the first, possibly 2nd and 3rd night in FLorence.
We are meeting our friends in Torino on Saturday, Oct. 6, leaving the 8th for 3 nights in Rapallo. (driving). Can't decide 3 nights in FLorence (have been to Florence almost every trip to Italy) , or leave on Friday, spending 3 nights in Torino. Our friends will join us on Saturday in Torino and our current plan is to leave on Monday, after a lunch at her vineyard, drive to Rapallo for 3 nights, drive to Modena for lunch at Osteria Gisuti, drive to Bologna , where we will spend 2 nights, and train to rome , 2 nights.

I absolutely LOVE Florence, but have never been to Torino. Biggest decision ( I know, tough decsiond:) )is Florence for 3 nights or Torino for 3 nights?
