Itinerary for 13 days in Italy (first time visit)

Jump to last reply

I'm headed to Italy to celebrate my 40th birthday. I'll be flying solo (female) and would appreciate advice on my itinerary. I've traveled Europe, Asia, Africa, etc., but have never been to Italy.

My likes: cafes, water views, people watching, leisurely strolls, cobblestone "step back in time" type places

I am not into pubs/nightlife, though I will sip a drink while watching the world go by. I don't plan on visiting museums on this trip. I want to be outside (weather permitting), in the fresh air, just making it up as I go.

Tentative "loose" itinerary. I keep thinking that I'm not spending enough time in Lake Como and have toyed with dropping Rome from the list, but I almost feel obligated to go.

Day 1: Early arrival into Milan, train to Lake Como
Day 2: Full day Lake Como
Day 3: Early train to Venice, arrive around lunch/early afternoon.
Day 4: Venice
Day 5: Venice, take evening train to Rome
Day 6: Rome
Day 7: Rome
Day 8: Train to Naples. Stay in Sorrento or somewhere near there
Day 9: Explore city I stay in (Sorrento?)
Day 10: Day trip (Amalfi coast somewhere)
Day 11: Day trip (Capris or similar)
Day 12-13 are reserved for travel

Thanks for any help you can offer!
