Help- Visiting Italy 2016

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Italy for this summer. I have started the research and would like some suggestions on the best way to get around. Our major focuses are Tuscany (I work in the wine industry so we plan on spending 4 days here), Amalfi Coast (with additional day trips- about 4 days here as well) and Rome. We are not big museum people but plan on touring the Vatican.

My question is, is it best to fly into Venice then take the train to Florence? Or fly into Rome and take the train to Florence? I plan on renting a car for Tuscany only. Just did not know which way makes more sense. From Tuscany we plan to take the train to Naples and a transfer to Amalfi.

I am working on winery set ups in Tuscany through work but would also be open to any suggestions of places to stay also in the countryside.

Would you recommend a night stay in Capri or a day trip only? Also, if anyone has recommendations for transfers, hotels and boat transfer/tours that would be greatly appreciated around the Amalfi coast area. I also would like to take a cooking class so if anyone has one to recommend as well that would be fantastic!

We are open to any other suggestions of places to see and/or visit. Thank you all for taking the time to recommend and give your input!
