Itinerary for 2 weeks in Italy

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning our first trip to Italy in April. We will be flying into Venice and out of Rome. Based on some recommendations here on the forum in other posts, we are planning on the following during the trip:
-- 3 days in Venice; we have booked an apartment a bit west of the Rialto Bridge.
-- 7 days in Tuscany; we have an apartment just outside of Siena. we plan on taking he train from Venice.
-- 4 days in Rome; we booked an apartment in the Jewish Ghetto (that just doesn't sound very politically correct). We plan on taking the bus from Siena.
We have also booked a car for the week in Tuscany to see the area sights and towns.

I do have a couple questions to help plan parts of the trip:
-- What's the best option for luggage in Venice between the time the plane lands (morning) and check-in for the apartment (16:00)? I was thinking about a locker at the train station, but we really wanted to take the Alilaguna for the experience. Any suggestions? We also thought of packing what we need in Venice into a single carry-on.
-- How difficult is it going to be to get from the train station in Siena to the car rental? Are there busses available? Am I worrying too much about this? ;)
-- Also, for the Rome rental, I have to pay in cash for the balance upon arrival. I feel like it would be wise to get that together (exchange/withdraw some Euros) while in the smaller towns versus trying to do that in Rome while dragging around luggage. Thoughts?

We don't really have a detailed itinerary for Tuscany, nor do I plan on much more than a checklist of the things we might want to do in a day trip. If anyone has ideas for a "neat day trip from Siena," I would welcome some suggestions.

We're really looking forward to the trip!
