Planning first trip to Italy (and ridiculously excited)

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip ever to Italy for summer of 2013, and trying to pick the cities we want to visit. My fear is trying to take on too much - I don't want to end up rushing from place to place. Clearly we are not going to be able to do everything all at once! (Darn it.)

We definitely want to hit Rome, Florence and Tuscany. How many nights in each place should we plan on? Some of the itineraries I have seen offered include one or two nights in Rome, Florence, etc, with additional nights in other cities such as Venice, Verona, etc. and my gut says that's not enough time and we WILL end up rushing from train to train. Should we try to cram in Venice? Verona? etc? or just concentrate on those three in order to really get enough time in for each place?

Thanks in advance!!!

Also, any recs for great places to stay at and visit in Tuscany? I'm really excited about going here.....
