Itinerary for Rome-Florence-Venice and train ticket question

Jump to last reply

Hello. Please bear with me. I am planning a solo trip to Rome-Florence-Venice starting in last week of March. Due to change in flight plans (airline just stopped offering direct flight from my US airport to Venice), I will not do open jaw of flying into Venice and leaving Rome b/c after checking ticket prices, it is much, much more expensive. Rather, I'll probably take the inconvenience of arriving in Rome, then off to Florence and Venice and then train back to Rome for flight home. Unfortunate waste of a day.

My current plan is:
Day 1: Arrive in Rome
Day 2: Rome
Day 3: Rome
Day 4: Rome
Day 5: train to Florence to arrive by late morning, stay 3 nights (2.5 days).
Day 6: Florence
Day 7: Florence
Day 8: train in morning to Venice to arrive by noon, stay 2 nights (total of two days in Venice)
Day 9: Venice
Day 10: Have a a couple of hours in the morning in Venice. Take afternoon train from Venice to Rome, stay in Rome overnight and fly home next day (Day 11).

Other option is to take train on 4th evening from Rome to arrive in Florence so that I am not traveling on day 5. I am open to suggestions. Time allocation is always the hardest decision. If a must, I have time to add an extra day to my trip, but from past experience I tend to start getting drained after day 10. I guess I'm just looking for advice regarding any major snags or omissions in my current plan.

My general interests: My favorite type of art just to give you an idea = late 19th century European paintings, I'll hit a few great sculptures but otherwise not as interested in sculptures, I enjoy the picturesque strolls through narrow European streets for photos (a la Paris, Prague). Not interested in seeing every church -- just the absolute must-see(s) (aware that opinions vary but I am not a big church person). Not into wine.

Venice - not sure if I am cutting time too short in Venice, particularly if I lose time by getting lost. In Venice I would like to mainly stroll through picturesque streets hoping for great photos, no side trip to island, get around by walking or vaporetti, possibly visit Gallerie dell' Accademia if I am not already worn out by art museums. Not too interested in Guggenheim. Not sure what to expect with Doge's palace.

In Florence I am still trying to grasp how much time I'll need. Seems like I should do Accademia, Uffizi, not sure about Galleria Palatina (vs doing Accademia in Venice), maybe try to stay in hotel near Duomo. Would like time for wandering. I do not plan on a day trip (Pisa, Siena) as of now.

Rome - Coloseum, Forum, Pantheon in one day, then Vatican for one day maybe combined with catacomb, still wondering if I should do Galleria Borghese.

Also, I visited the website to buy train tickets ahead of time in Italy but have heard things about it not taking foreign credit cards and that i should just buy the tickets when in Italy. However, it seems like the prices would be higher if I did the latter compared to buying in advance. I see PayPal options on the website. Does anyone have advice on this?
