Help Selecting Travel Dates For Sept 2012

Jump to last reply

I know it is a long way out, but we are (still) planning our first trip to Italy for next Sept 2012. After discussions on this board and researching travel books and guides, we have finally decided on an itinerary that will include:

5 nights Venice (day trip to Verona)
4 nights Cinque Terre area
4 nights Rome

We want to travel in September but we have flexibility with the dates. We were thinking of arriving in Venice on a Sunday and flying out of Rome on a Saturday, but these days are flexible as well if there are options that would be better (crowds, hours of operation, etc). Should we wait until the end of September? Any dates to avoid? I didn't see any major holidays but want to be sure I didn't overlook something.

Also, we were thinking of spending the day in Florence en route from Venice to CT since the train stops there anyway. I know a day won't do justice to the area, but I figure it is better than not visiting at all! Albeit not ideal, would this be feasible?

Any thoughts, comments or advice is greatly appreciated!
