Hi everyone! After planning my high-level 12 day italian itinerary this coming september [which includes Rome - 4 days // Positano + Amalfi coast - 2.5 days // the Tuscan countryside - 3.5 days // and Venice - 3 days], I am now researching and planning at a more detailed level... starting with rome!
