Italy

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are attempting to plan a romantic 10 year anniversary trip to Italy at the end of May. We will be staying for only 6 days after travel and would like yo see as much as possible. However, we want to try not to overdue it so we can enjoy ourselves. That being said, we arrive in Rome Thursday morning and would like to head over to Florence for a day or two and then explore the Italian Riviera before returning to Rome for our flight the following Wednesday morning. We are in our late thirties/early fourties and both really enjoy exploring different areas, great food and wine. We have just started traveling. Our first trip was to Paris last year and we LOVED it! Our budget is moderate...but we would like to splurge here and there on both restaurants and hotels if we find a places that are really special (exceptional food/great views).

I have two questions: 1) For those of you that know the area, how would you break down time between those 3 places and how would you travel(train?)? We are interested in Rome but only want to stay a day or two because we are also very interested in the northern area. Do you feel that we are being too ambitious? Should we eliminate either Florence or the Italian Riviera? 2) Can anyone recommend favorite hotels and restaurants in these 3 areas? OK...that was more than 2 questions:)

Thank you so much for your help. Any feedback would be very helpful!
