Itinerary Tweaks and Tips, Please

Jump to last reply

Below I've placed the itinerary for our upcoming holiday in Italy. I've included the dates in the event something particular is called to mind (festivals, closings, and so forth). The driving days are set based on the reserved house/trulli/apartment; asterisks only denote market days for the given city.

Our plan is generally to sightsee in the mornings and then return to our rental (with pool) for the afternoon. We did that last year in Provence and it was a winning combination; plus, none of us thought wandering a city closed for siesta in the heat of late June would be any fun.

Questions.
1. Do we have too little scheduled for the first week in Puglia? Travelers are two adults, two teens (and one DDog). We're happy to wander interesting towns and see what there is to see; once the teens reach their daily limit of "old stuff" they usually take off on their own.

2. Can anyone suggest an easy plan to park as near as possible to Trevi fountain on our travel-via-Rome day? It being that the coins the children threw in the fountain in 2007 have us returning to the area, more or less, the teens want to throw another coin into the fountain for the future. :) We'll pause for lunch before continuing to Magione.

We have visited Venice previously, so the overnight is really just to break up the driving and eat more great food.

Thank you, in advance.
