Italy trip planning - need guidance and suggestions

Jump to last reply

We are travelling to Italy for 20 days from Late April - Mid May in 2014.

Need guidance on planning our itinerary. Listed some of the places we would like to cover, but need help in assigning the right number of days to each location.

My thoughts below:

Starting with 1 night in Milan (we are not big on shopping).
2 nights in Lake Como - Bellagio (relax / wind down, enjoy the lake side)
2 Nights in Venice (experience the culture)
5 nights in Tuscany area - staying in Florence and making day trips for wine tour and other cities within Tuscany.
4 nights in Amalfi coast with day trips to coastal town /villages such as Positano, etc.
5 nights in Rome (enjoy museums, Vatican etc.)

Need to understand if we are overstaying in some places or not, for example 5 nights in Tuscany and Rome could be an overkill, and we could re-allocate an additional day to Venice.

Also, if we are missing out on any of the key places (e.g. Cinque Terre) that could be covered, since 20 days is good amount of time.

Our aim is to have a relaxed trip, not feel rushed and at the same time sample different parts of Italy, which is why i have assigned minimum of 2 -3 nights in each place taking into account travelling time needed to reach each of these places.

Suggestions/Advice would be much appreciated!!!
