Northern/mid Italy Itinerary suggestions

Jump to last reply

I am pondering a trip to Italy for September 2013. (I'm so excited that I have to start early)

The actual trip will be: England, followed by France and Italy. (or Italy then France)

Cities I am interested in seeing in Italy(and Switzerland): Venice, Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Bernese Lauterbrunnen/Murren, and Florence (with day trips to Sienna and Chianti area)

I only have 8 days, so it will be 3 days in 2 places and 2 days in a third place.
Therefore, I need to choose three of those five places above.

Travel for France and Italy: mostly by train.
I understand that the logistics for traveling to Murren from Italy could take too much time from what I have and might not be worth it?

Things my husband and I are interested in: Pretty scenery, seeing something different (we live in Cape Town), interesting street scenes and walks, sweet coffee shops and restaurants - great food.

Not as interested in art, history, museums etc.

I need suggestions on what to choose in our very short 8 days, which are overrated and which truly are must-sees.

Thank you!
