Italy in March | Tips & help with Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello there!

We are planning a 6-day, first-time trip to Italy in March and would like some help with the itinerary. We've decided on the start (Venice) and end (Pompii) points of the trip and have booked the flight tickets.

Day 1: Arrive in Venice at 4 PM and spend the night in Venice
Day 2: Spend a major part of the day in Venice before taking the train to either Florence or Rome
Day 3: Spend the day either in Florence or Rome
Day 4: Spend the day in Rome
Day 5: Spend major part of the day in Rome. In the evening, take the train from Rome --> Pompeii and spend the night in Pompeii
Day 6: Spend the day exploring the ruins before flying out of Naples at night

We are not too much into art / art galleries and prefer architecture, ruins, good food, walking, soaking up local culture, exploring...

Looking for:
- As the time is limited, suggestions on either spending additional time in Venice, skipping Florence all together or spending additional time in Rome

- Best locality for accommodation in Rome (considering we would like to visit the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Vatican City & Museum, St Peters etc)

- Pit stop for a few hours in the Tuscan region en route from Venice to Rome, if viable
