Italy First-timer

Jump to last reply

Help! Rescue me from myself! My husband and I have the first 2 weeks of September to travel Italy. Air tickets already purchased to land in Florence and depart 2 weeks later from Venice. At first we thought we would spend 4-5 days each in Florence, Cinque Terre, and Venice. Now I'm wondering if it should be Florence, Rome, and Venice.

I've just spent the entire day looking at guest houses and B&Bs (we generally eschew the traditional hotel), and cannot for the life of me make up my mind.

I have a couple of nice places picked out for Florence and Venice, but need advice on Rome. Are the neighborhoods around Pantheon and Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain (Navona?) the best places to stay? We like to do everything on foot to the extent possible, and don't plan to rent a car at all.

Should I forget Rome and go to Cinque Terre? If so, which town? Argh!

That's a lot to ask! Any seasoned Italian experts, chime in.
Thanks!
