ITALY- NY-Venice 8 nites - Should Florence be day trip or cut Venice short?

Jump to last reply

Traveling alone and will be in Venice - for the 1st time! - during the week of Film Festival (not sure if that's a good thing) and the huge Regeta Storica is the first Sunday of September, the day after I arrive.

I was going spend all of the 8-nights in Venice - and really soak it in - before going to Tuscany for three weeks and then Rome for two weeks.

About to book a B&B in Venice (with all the festivals I think I should book early) but afraid I'm going to have booker's remorse if I don't spend a night in Florence. I have to change trains to get from Venice to Florence anyway - but dragging luggage and settling into a hotel for 1 night, might make it too exhausting.

I've spent a few weeks in Florence 25-years ago, so the memories are vague - all I remember is the David, people selling leather items, and having a great time with friends.

I'm thinking maybe I should just do a 2-hr day trip by train from Tuscany - or Venice, if the 8 days feel like overkill.

Any one out there have any thoughts?
