New to Fodors: Tours, Restaurants, Sightseeing, etc in Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi All! I am starting to get the hang of the site and have really appreciated all the help I have received on other posts. My husband and I along with another couple are heading to Italy in September. We have our itinerary but I am wondering if people could help us with restaurant ideas, sightseeing must see, and any other special things to do or see. We have a limited amount of time in each place due to work schedules and a wedding, but here is what we have booked.

Arrive to Rome and head to Ravello
3 nights in Ravello
2 nights Capri
3 nights Florence for wedding
2 nights Rome

So far we don't have much planned for Ravello. Probably will use the first day to relax and stroll around and start to get on Italy time.

In Capri we have booked an island tour & Blue Grotto along with dinner one night at Paolino.

We will head to Naples from Capri and were planning on having pizza for lunch there before taking the train to Florence. Where should we go for lunch?

We won't have too much time to really sightsee in Florence except for a few hours one day and one night because of the wedding festivities. What are some favorite things to do?

In Rome my husband and I have a tour guide/driver for about 7 hours to tour Rome. What are some must sees? I know we wont get to do and see everything, so what are a few places we should see and enjoy. We will definitely see the colosseum. (Forgot to mention when we land in Rome we are going to Vatican because it will not be open on Sunday when we are actually staying in Rome)

So yes, we have a few things planned, but would love some other recommendations, advice, ideas, and some of your favorite places and things to do. Thanks so much!
