Italy - Help with Tuscany and Amalfi

Jump to last reply

Starting to plan a relaxing and romantic late spring trip with my new girlfriend so she can realize her dream to tour Italy. She owns the Rick Steves' Italy overview and we watched it last night so we could focus our planning and it seems like the regions of interest would be Tuscany and the Amalfi coast. I think the maximum length of our trip would be 10-11 days. Here preference is more about cultural immersion and enjoying the natural splendor of the landscape as opposed to visiting historic landmarks. I am not looking for a bargain basement experience, I also don’t want to break the bank.

Here are some questions:

1) I think planning the trip on my own would be preferable to trying to find a tour to needs my needs.

2) Based on the regions I want to visit it seems that Rome would be the preferable Italian city to arrive as opposed to Florence?

3) Suggestions on cities to be bases in Tuscany and Amalfi area.

4) In Tuscany I have been reading about “Agrotourismos” as places to stay and I think I will like to stay/base my Tuscany visit at oe of these locations. What would be the expected rates.

5) It also seems like hiring a car/tax to explore the Amalfi areas is preferable and I would appreciate any information on this, such as contacts and rates.

6) Is it difficult to travel by train between Tuscany, Amalfi and Rome?

Any other suggestion would be greatly appreciated as I know my message cannot capture all the needed details. Much thanks in advance.
