First time to Europe - Italy

Jump to last reply

My Fiancé and I are traveling to Europe (pre-wedding honeymoon, yes I know.....ODD), Italy to be exact this coming October '12. We will have 10 full days in Italy, and my current plan (I'm a planner by nature) is to land in Rome (airlines ticket purchased), stay 3 nights, train to Florence, 2 nights, train to Venice 2 nights and then back to Rome for a day before heading back to Ft. Lauderdale :(

I was wondering since I am not looking to spend $10K on this trip and truly want to keep expenses down, can you tour sites around Italy yourself without a tour guide. Or is it worth having someone tour you? I've been looking at some passes, I believe it’s called Omnia Card, do you tour yourself by buying these passes? Are there guides in the museums? I know in Rome the places I want to see are def. Vatican City and Sistine Chapel, St Peters, Pantheon, Coliseum, Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill Museums.

Did I miss anything in Rome important to see (I did not name the outdoor items, since that is a given)? Haven't started my research for Florence and Venice :(

Thank you in advance to all who kindly assist :)
