first italy trip

Jump to last reply

Well, I think I have officially decided that we will be taking our first Italy vacation in 2015. I know it is a long way away but I am trying to plan it as a surprise for hubby's graduation!!

Anyway, I am still in the beginning stages of planning and am a little overwhelmed at all the options and how little time we will have =( I wish we could take like 6 months and just live there hah

I think we will have 10 days, this includes air travel so maybe like 7-8 days actually in Italy? I was thinking we would fly in to Rome, spend 2 days there (we want to see the major sites but don't want to spend a lot of time there) the rest of the time I know we just want to enjoy the country side, the lifestyle and the wine and food. I really want to spend a few days in cinque terre.

we much prefer the quiet, low key, immerse in the culture (as much as possible in such short time) type vacation...we aren't big shoppers and we aren't night lifers

anyway, any input on where our days might best be spent?

thank you!
