Italy for 25th Anniversary in Spring 2017

Jump to last reply

My husband and I want to go to Italy for the first time for our 25th anniversary next Spring (late March/Early April). I am just starting to plan this, but was thinking 2 - 2/12 weeks. Most sites I've seen recommend not more than 3 cities, although I'm interested in perhaps utilizing the point-to-point trains for a day trip or two. We are big on great food & wine, great art & architecture, and generally soaking up the culture - less so on doing every "touristy" thing, big hotels, and giant crowds. We have a very hectic life at home caring for 3 elderly parents in our home as well as 2 teenagers and own a business, so some of every vacation is best suited to "minimal activity and rest" - which makes the train idea appealing, as well. I've seen some articles on seeing Italy by train over 2 weeks (i.e. Rome/Assisi/Florence/Milan/Venice staying 2-3 days in each area). I would like to know if that is a good idea, or if others have advice on what they enjoyed most. We are in our mid-40's, and in reasonably good health, although hubby has had both knees replaced a couple years ago. We last traveled to Europe in 2002 (England & France), and while we had a good time, in hindsight, I wish I had gotten more input before going. So, any suggestions and ideas are greatly appreciated.
