Rome, Florence, Barcelona

Jump to last reply

My daughter (22 yrs old) and I are going to Italy and Spain for the first time, end of May 2012. We have about 14 days for the trip and will arrive Rome (FCO) first.
Travel style: easy and relax; don't like driving in the cities; 50/50 split time appreciation between museums, historical sites and walking around, shopping, lingering at cafe/pastry shops. I would appreciate your pointers:
1. Rome: are two full days enough to cover al the usual tourist attractions:the Vatican, Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain and anythings else I should expolore? Flight arrives at 8am, so I basically have two full days and I am flexible to spend 2-4 nights in Rome.
2. Florence: is it feasbile to do day-trips from Florence to Venice, Milan, Pompei, and the famous Tuscany, maybe 4 days total / 1 day for each location?
3. Best way to travel from Rome to Florence?
4. Best way to travel from Florence to Venice and Milan, one day for each city?
5. Barcelona: we have 3 nights and have not figured out what to do yet. Suggestions appreciated.
Thanks,
Pam
