Please comment on Rome/Florence Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I am going on the above trip soon and just want some comments, suggestions or such for this trip. This is my first trip to Rome and Florence. I am traveling with my husband. In Florence, we will meet up with my 21 yo son who has been studying there for a semester. My husband and are in active, in our early 50's, slow travelers who love nothing better than a small, local great find which will enhance our trip and give us something to remember fondly. That said, we are hitting all the tourist sites, mainly with small group tours we have booked from here. We want to see those sites because one never knows if one can return! And..there are many other cool places to see and not enough time or money for all of them! We don't speak Italian, but are not afraid to try with the phrase book. We love architecture, urban planning, small charming restaurants. Any suggestions or helpful hints?

Day 1, Land in Rome at 10 am. Just using the day for orientation, nap and jet lag.
Day 2, Small group (8) tour of Vatican, etc.
Day 3, Ostia Antica (using Rick Steves audio tour)
Day 4 Open morning, evening tour at Borghese (don't have tour booked, just tix)
Day 5 Coliseum and Forum tour with Context (thanks, fodor's!) Evening train to FLO
Day 6 Reunion with son in Florence
Day 7 Wine and Cook tour of Chianti (6 people)
Day 8 Day trip? Sienna or Pisa?
Day 9 Ufizzi (booked)
Day10 Accademia (booked)
Day 11 Leave for States and from what I hear, plan next trip to Italy

Thanks for your consideration! Mutti Stacy
