Italy travelers -- got advice for my 13 day trip to Italy

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our 2nd trip ever to Europe, this time to Italy. We have 13 days and are looking for advice on our plan:
- Rome, fly in, two night stay (10/22-23)
- Orvieto, three nights of quiet, by bus from Rome, rent a car, visit San G, Chianti vineyards, day trip to Siena (24th-26th)
- Florence, 2 nights stay, by bus from Orvieto, no car (27, 28th) - STAY 1 MORE NIGHT?
- Venice, 3 nights stay, by train from Florence (Oct 29, 30, 31st) - OR ONLY 2 NIGHTS VENICE?
- Lake Lucerne, 1 night stay, by train from Venice to break up the trip (Nov 1) - DROP THIS?
- Zurich, 1 night, by train from Lake Lucerne, leave the next morning to Hawaii (Nov 2, 3)

For all of you aficionados de italia, do you have any general advice on this plan? It seems like a lot, should I eliminate Lake Lucerne at this time of year? I'd love to hear your thoughts...:)
Mahalo from Hawai'i!
