ITALY, late Sept.-Oct. (feeling overwhelmed)

Jump to last reply

I am new to the forum and trying to take in the wealth of information and suggestions already available for my desired trip. I am hoping to narrow down my stops by finding out if my timetable is doable for all I want to see. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated as this will be my first European trip. From what I gather we are a little late in the planning process for hotel/travel/etc. but we have just got the verification that we can make this trip happen.

First I will list stops for a dream vacation knowing full well that the final plan will probably not include some of it.

Fly into Zurich(?)
Zermatt by train - Overnight stay
Lake Como - Bellagio / short stay
Tuscany region - Agrotourismo? and rental car to explore some small towns
Rome - Quick stop
Amlfi Coast (vs. Cinque Terre?) - Longer relaxing stay with local tours

Not sure how ambitious this would be for a 12-14 day trip and what kind of stops/sights we should consider along the route(?). This is a 'romantic' trip for our 10th anniversary/40th birthdays. We are fairly active and would not mind a little hiking for sightseeing, but we also ejoy relaxing and leisurely exploring out of the way places.

Thank you in advance for taking time to help me make a special trip.
