Rome - Venice, or Rome - Amalfi Coast?

Jump to last reply

I'm starting to research Italy for an upcoming trip (10 days in late September, early October).

Need advice on itinerary as I can't decide -- we recently traveled to France and received a lot of GREAT advice from all you Fodorites, so I am hoping you'll be able to steer me in the right direction again!

We are a party of two (my DH and I) this time around -- last trip was a party of 12 and it was just too complicated, we won't be doing that again any time soon!!

So....onto the trip:

Definitely 4 or 5 days in Rome -- we've never been there and want to try to see and do EVERYTHING!

My question is about the second half of the trip. I want to go to Venice, my DH wants to go to the Amalfi Coast.

What are the merits of both? We were in Nice, Eze and Monte Carlo this past October -- is the Amalfi Coast similar? Pictures of the AC look absolutely beautiful, but what is there to do other than enjoy the scenery? I feel that Venice is a better choice -- romantic canals, historical/architectural significance, etc.....

Can't decide, HELP!

Thank you!
