More concise itinerary-Rome, Tuscany, Paris

Jump to last reply

We have done Venice, Florence, Rome, Pompeii, Pisa, Amalfi Coast. Our daughter will be studying in Arricia so we will return to visit Rome/Arricia and catch a few things we missed last time then get a car and head to Tuscany. Looking at Orvieto, Montepulciano/Pienza/Montelcino, then onto________________.

We enjoy the highlights of any area but want this to be a varied trip. Some have suggested Siena/Chianti region/San Gimignano/Volterra/Lucca, some have said pit stop in Siena then head off to Italian Riviera or Lake Como then to Paris. 14 non-travel days total, will be in Rome for three. The kicker is we are talking about mid-March.

I would like suggestions on where we should go from here. We will fly out of Paris so need to end up there eventually(have never been). Lots running through my head. How much is too much time in the hill towns? Is Lake Como too cold/empty in March? Is this whole trip going to be cold? Is the French or Italian Riviera a consideration? Is Cinque Terre closed up this time of year? Best travel methods. Can we fly out of Pisa on low cost air with heavy luggage? Had hoped to enjoy the train travel this trip. Travel agent suggested 3 days Rome,3 days Tuscany, 2 days Italian Riviera or Como, 3 days Paris, high speed train and 3 days South of France. That itinerary is starting to sound like too much as I research. Ideas on itinerary? We loved Venice and Amalfi last time, as well as Rome. Had hoped to return but so much more to see! Open to any and all ideas.
