Help with Italy Itinerary

Jump to last reply

As an off-on reader of the forums, I have noticed that many itinerary responses warn that the traveler is trying to squeeze too much into a short period of time. I want to avoid the same problem.

My wife and I (60 years old) are experienced travelers and are planning a 12 week trip next year to Europe. Within that trip, we have set aside 3 weeks in Italy (starting the last week of September). In the past, we have spent a week in Rome, but that's it. And because of the routing on the rest of the trip, we have eliminated anything south of Rome from consideration.

Originally, we had planned the following itinerary:

Week #1 - Milan (2 days), Lake Como (2 days), and Cinqueterre (3 days)
Week #2 - Florence/Tuscany
Week #3 - Bologna, Parma, Ravenna, leaving four days for Venice.

Since then, we have opted for a week-long cooking class in Verona for Week #3, and now face the question of whether the three weeks listed above are doable (and more importantly advisable) in two weeks, or if we should just drop one of the weeks?

We haven't set the transportation yet. We're okay with driving, but would be willing to take trains or busses if it makes sense.

Thanks in advance for the advice.
