Italy itinerary in July

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Italy in July with my boyfriend and another friend, we'll be spending 12 nights. We are all 50 years old (the reason for our trip!). First time in Italy for all of us. More interested in relaxation than museums. Your thoughts on our trip plans would be most welcome!
Flying in and out of Milan. Our thought was to go from Milan to Venice for a brief visit (day and a half). Have heard it is crowded and expensive but is one of those places you should "at least see once". Then to Tuscany for about 4 nights. We'd like to stay in an "agriturismo" type situation in a rural area. We then want to go to a beach for 3 to 4 days and are looking at the Amalfi Coast. Finally we are deciding on Cinque Terra as we head back north to Milan. Is it worth the trip or should we extend our Tuscany and beach days? Can Cinque Terra be appreciated in a couple of days? How much of the trip is doable by train? We are willing to rent a car but could forgo that for parts of the trip.

thanks so much, I appreciate the experience of other travelers!
