Please give advise on itinerary: recommendations instead of Rome?

Jump to last reply

After a gap in time, due to work and family needs, I am back to planning again our trip to Italy in mid May. Time is flying by.......
We will fly into Venice and out of Rome from LAX and we have 12 nights.

My question is : What would you recommend instead of staying in Rome upon leaving?

We will arrive early Monday: have 3 nights in Venice--do maybe one day trip (Ferrara, Raveena, Volterra?)
Florence: 2 nights
Siena: 4 nights at Hotel Ravizza. Get a car to see hill towns (San Quirco, Pienza, then maybe Lucca). I think driving in Italy will be fine, as I have driven grew up in NYC, then LA and SF.

Any input on this plan is welcome!
We will need to spend our last night near Rome as our flight is at 10 AM on Sat.

Where to spend 2 nights before that and leaving? Should we go south and see Naples or Cilento? We would prefer not a large city. Or should we stay in Tuscany and do more trips in that region?

We (husband and I) have our 23 year old daughter and we are most interested in food, wine, Italian life and culture than museums.
I still have a ways to go in planning this out, but have hotels reserved except the last 3 nights!
Thank you for your help!!
Fodorites have been very helpful and I have 3 notebooks of ideas, so I have alot of work to do!
