Florence/Tuscany and Rome - help with details!!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have booked the majority of our September trip. We are starting out in London, moving on to Paris and then flying in to Pisa.

My original plan was to take the train from pisa to florence after landing, and spending 4 nights in florence. Then, take the train to Rome and spend 3 nights there before flying home fom Rome.

I want to get your opinions or different itinerary recommendations on those last 7 nights of our trip. I don't want to change hotels more than once, and we have to end up in Rome to get home. How would you do it?

We are in our 20s/30s, have seen Florence and Rome for one day each on a cruise last year. We love food and wine. Love walking around, local markets, getting a feel for the culture. I love shopping. We won't be spending much time in museums. Ideally we don't want to rent a car. We are ok with doing a few day trips.

So... ? Stick with the plan? Choose Bologna instead of florence? Spend more time in Rome? Best day trips from these cities (or others you recommend)? Siena? You guys have helped me plan the trip thus far, I appreciate your input.
