Driving through Italy. Doable?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I am planning the first leg of my honeymoon for next May/June. We plan on flying into Venice and spending 2 nights there. From there I intend to rent a car and head south to Florence and spend 2 nights. Lastly, we would head south to Rome and spend 3 nights there. I understand that you can't drive in to the city so we'd be willing stay out of the city walls.

Our reason for wanting the car is because we'd like to venture off and check out some other smaller cities; maybe drive down to Sorrento for the day. We feel comfortable driving in a foreign country and don't mind being on the road.

I'd like to know if this is realistic and if anyone can offer some advice about taking this trip by car.

Thanks for your help!
