Revised Italy itinerary--a couple of questions

Jump to last reply

We decided to abandon the idea of combining Croatia and Italy into one trip (my other post). We’ve chosen to stay with Italy. Here’s the revised expanded Italy itinerary. My main questions are: should we switch the travel order of Siena and Perugia? We’ll be travelling by train from Ravenna. And which would be the better one from which to proceed to Orvieto?

All of these cities/towns will be new to us except Rome (been there twice before). This time there we’re going to do some of the day trips that we’ve always wanted to do. I realize that it seems like we’re moving around quite a bit, but overall I think it flows nicely. And hopefully the pace in the smaller towns won’t make it feel too hectic. What do you think? Should we subtract one night from Rome and add a night to Perugia or Orvieto instead?

Day 1. Fly overnight to Venice. Arrive mid-morning, then train to Padua directly from airport.

Days 2-3. Padua (2 nights) (Giotto frescoes).

Day 4. Train to Verona (1 night) (Opera)

Days 5-6. Train to Ravenna (2 nights) (Mosaics)

Days 7-9. Train to Siena (3 nights) Day trip to San Gimignamo. Another day -wine tour

Days 10-11. Train or bus to Perugia (2 nights) Day trip to Assisi

Day 12. Bus to Orvieto (1 night)

Days 13-16. Train or bus to Rome (4 nights) Day trip to Ostia Antica. Day trip to Tivoli (Hadrian’s Villa)

Day 17. Fly home from Rome.

Thanks.
