Italy trip help itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello. I posted elsewhere about starting in Switzerland and going by train to Cinque Terre but we (my wife and I) have decided instead to fly into Venice and out of Florence, and go to these cities plus Cinque Terre. I have the guide books and have looked through them, I'm not concerned about where to stay (except maybe suggestions for Cinque Terre, but more how long to stay at this point.

We have 10 nights. We will leave on 9/20 and arrive the next lunchtime. And we fly home on 10/1. I am thinking of 3 nights in Venice, then train to Cinque Terre, 3 nights there, then on to Florence for 4 nights. Does this sound ok? I'd also sort of like to squeeze a day in Sienna but figure this may be just that, a squeeze and we don't want to rush too much. Is this worth a day trip? Or should we spend the night there if we choose to go and lose a night in Florence?

As far as CT--we are a pretty laid back middle aged couple, more into ambiance and food than a lot of hiking (but we will hike, just not the purpose of the trip). We don't care about nightlife, other than food, and the beach. So Manarola looks interesting, but not committed to this. Any suggestions? And suggestions about hotels in CT? Budget not a big issue but would like to get a nice view and get value. Thanks!
