Itinerary input

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I have booked a last minute trip to Italy for the end of August and would appreciate input on the first draft of my itinerary. I will be traveling with my 15 year old daughter (who thankfully, is a great travel companion!).

Tuesday, August 23rd we fly from Boston to Rome and arrive (of course!) on 8/24

Day 1 Arrive in Rome, travel on to Venice

Day 2 Venice

Day 3 Venice

Day 4 Travel to Florence

Day 5 Florence

Day 6 Florence

Day 7 Florence

Day 8 Travel to Rome (early morning train)

Day 9 Rome

Day 10 Rome

Day 11 2:30 flight to Boston

I would like to take a day trip to Cinque Terre on one of our Florence days. I know it will be long. I have looked at other configurations to stay one night in Cinque Terre but the trains seem to be quicker from the bigger cities.

I am wondering about train travel between the major cities. For past trips to other countries, I have pre-booked all our train travel as there was quite a savings in doing so. For this trip, as I've explored postings and train sites, it seems that the suggestion is to purchase day of travel as there won't be a savings to pre-purchase. Is this true?

I am open to any and all suggestions! Thanks so much!
