how is my itinerary?!! 4 cities, 16 days

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (late 30s and 20s) took a med cruise last year and LOVED IT - we saw highlights of Barcelona, Istanbul, Rome, Venice, Florence, Sorrento, the Greeks islands, Athens...

We thought about doing a baltic cruise this year but decided to go back to the Med areas and explore on foot in more detail.

We would spend around 16 days (flexible) this September. We changed our minds multiple times on the itinerary but I think we now settled on London and Paris (both new to us) and then Florence and Rome (spent a day in each on cruise last year).

Is this too much? I was thinking to take the train, except fly from Paris to Florence.

If the itinerary looks ok, would you do it in that order or reverse? Any reasons why?

We don't want to burn out but we also don't like a very slow pace as we get bored relatively quickly. We will most likely skip all the tourist attractions (museums, churches, ruins) this time around as we saw PLENTY last time.

We mostly want to enjoy the culture and the cuisines. Do a wine tour for a day, ideally make it to Capri or Positano for a day (is this unrealistic from Rome?), explore small towns in Tuscany. Are the cities I chose in Italy not good for that? Any better suggestions (for example, Siena instead of Florence?)? Thanks for any advice!
