Planning First Trip to Italy — April 2014

Jump to last reply

I'm beginning to start planning my wife and I's first trip to Italy for late April 2014.

Right now, we're working with our Travel Professional to set up the places we will stay and the general itinerary, leaving open the tours/excursions we would be doing.

As of now, we are planning to start with 4 nights in Rome then onto 3 nights in Florence, 2 nights in Milan and finishing with 2 nights in Venice. I may have the flexibility to add one or two more nights to our trip.

My wife is a designer and we are interested in taking in quite a bit of the art and history that Italy has to offer. We certainly want to see most of the big sights when we visit. My personal interest would be to also hit an opera in Milan and maybe take a brief excursion to Pompeii.

I'm going to start checking out the rest of the forums to see what other people have done, but I'd appreciate any advice for a first-timer that you may have as we start building our trip, starting with the overall itinerary.

Thanks :)
