Preliminary Italian itinerary - CT, Tuscany/Florence, Rome

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip with a friend for May - a bit late to get started, but opportunity struck us so here we are. We haven't booked a thing yet; I'm hoping to book plane tickets this weekend, and right now it looks like into and out of Rome will be our best bet in terms of flight schedules and prices. (I also checked open-jaw and round trip tickets using Milan and Pisa.) Here's a first stab at an itinerary - I'd love any general feedback. We are two female friends in our early 30s, active, don't need a lot of nightlife, past the hostel phase but we like a good value. We went to Rome, Venice, and Bellagio a few years ago, so don't need as many days in Rome this time. We've both been to Florence, but 15 years ago in college. For reference on how long we generally stay places - we spent 4.5 days in Rome, 2.5 in Venice, and 2.5 in Bellagio last time and that worked well for us.

Day 0 - leave US

Day 1 - land in Rome, train to Cinque Terre, focusing on Vernazza right now but open to other villages. (Trenitalia has journey time at just under four hours with a change at La Spezia - a long day, but might as well knock it out, and coming from Milan was almost as long)
Days 2-3 - CT, plan to hike, take the boat, see the towns

Day 4 - train to somewhere in Tuscany, maybe stopping in Lucca on the way?
Days 5, 6, 7, 8 - Tuscany, including a day in Florence. We're leaning toward renting a car and looking for an agriturismo or something along those lines - possibly somewhere near Siena or San G as a base? On the list are San G, Siena, Lucca for sure, still doing research about other places and activities. A cooking class would be great.

Day 9 - train to Rome
Days 10, 11 - Rome
Day 12 - fly back to US

I'm debating whether to take a day from Tuscany or Rome and add it to the CT, since we'll be getting over jet lag there, but we came close to being bored in Bellagio after two full days so I'm hesitant about that.

Thanks for any input! This is definitely still in the preliminary phases, so any feedback is welcome.
