First Time in Italy

Jump to last reply

Heading to Italy in late Sept/Oct with my wife for 10-11 days. Our preliminary planned itinerary is fly to Milan, spend 2 days, drive to Venice, spend 2 days, drive to Florence, spend 2 days, drive to Rome, get rid of the rental car and spend 4 days then fly out.

Car: I've driven all through France (not Paris!) and Ireland (opposite side!) successfully. Thoughts on driving in Italy? I figure it is more flexible for the first part of our trip

Time: Thhoughts on itinerary? not enough or too much time in 1 place (I realize you could probably spend a month per city!)

Suggestions: Given flying into Milan and out of Rome, thoguhts on what we might add or not miss along the way?

Thanks!
