Need advice on itinerary for 2 weeks in Italy

Jump to last reply

Planning anniversary trip to Italy in early May.
Here is how it looks:
Days 1-4: Rome
Days 5-8: Florence, with one daytrip in Tuscany (rent a car)
Days 9-10: Bologna, with daytrip to Modena
Days 10-13: Venice

Now, we planned around 13 days but it will actually be 14. So, what to do with the extra day?
Debated a night in Verona. Or adding an extra day to somewhere we already planned. Or, subtracting a day from one of our planned places and doing 2 nights in Positano.
We figure the Amalfi coast is one of those "musts" in Italy. But we are not really beach people and like to sightsee. So we wonder if we would not be suited to that place.

The other idea is to subtract a day from one place in italy and do an "extended" layover somewhere in europe on our way back to the states.
We floated the idea of London (been there before but loved it), or Amsterdam or Copenhagen (two places we haven't been but are curious).

Then again, we wonder if it's nuts to do a 2 night stopover somewhere instead of staying in Italy.

So, if you were in our spot what would you recommend?
