Ready to fine tune our final Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Any suggestions of things we can't miss along our way would be appreciated. Our plans have been constantly evolving for a couple months now but I think we have finally nailed down at least all our stops and hotels. Now it is just making sure we maximize our short stays along our route.

I received a lot of great tips and information even getting to this point and thank everyone that helped. As I stated in my last thread I know our itinerary is not for everyone, but I think we are very pleased and will enjoy seeing so much...even though I did end up removing our visit to the Lake Como region.

Thanks in advance for any insight that would help us have a truly unforgettable experience. Art galleries would not be high on our list. Food, sights and culture would be our focus.

Here it is:
