First timer's trip to Italy for two weeks

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 2 week trip to Italy for mid-late September 2015 to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We are in our late 20's and this is our first European experience except for study abroad opportunities in college. I have been a stalker of the Italy forum for months now and you all have really taught me so much. So I would love your honest opinions for the rough itinerary that we've put together.

Fly into Venice for- nights or 2.5 days

Train to Florence or some other close-by town- 3 nights

Train to Rome- 3 nights

Amalfi Coast- 6 nights (possibly staying in Praiano?)

Naples before flight home- 1 night

I know at first glance, it may look a little heavy on the coast however that's been my dream vacation since I was a young girl. We really want to balance history and culture in the larger cities and some laid-back, relaxed days of exploring in Tuscany and more so in the AC when we have more time.

We have a lot more research to do about specific locations but just wanted to get a rough itinerary planned out based off things I've learned from this forum. Some of the nontraditional things we'd be interested in are a walking history tours in Florence and/or Rome, possibly food or cooking classes, biking through Tuscan countryside, driver to drive up the coast, and a day trip out to Capri. Any specific recommendations either for attractions, favorite accommodations, tour companies, etc. would be amazing.

Thanks in advance!!
