Help for first timers

Jump to last reply

my wife and i plan to visit Italy in mid august. We land at rome, spend four nights, head south to capri on day 5 for a night or two. We love nature, food and history. We are thinking of taking the train from naples on day 7 to sienna on route to florence and venice. All this information has been gleaned from the internet. Should we spend the night in Sienna (or are there more scenic places around?), depart on day 8 to florence, spend some time in the city centre and take the evening train to venice, is that doable? day 9 i am thinking of taking the night train to nice for two nights. day 12 fly to barcelone from nice. day 15 return home.
(was very keen on visiting seville but that i think would be to tall an order)

We do not live in Europe as such are squeezing in the above destinations that we have always longed to visit. Next trip for now does not seem to be happening in the near future especially after the advent of kids.

And please, what is the minimum budget for two people per day for food, sight seeing etc (minus boarding and lodging).

Thank you
