Should we stop for the day in Florence - Help!

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Italy May 1-12 of this year and will be spending 4 nights in Venice and 6 nights in Rome (my first time, DH's 2nd time). We entertained the idea of trying to squeeze a Florence stay into our trip but decided to save it for a future trip we are planning to Tuscany. We didn't want our trip to be rushed.

In any event, I am trying to decide if we should spend a few hours in Florence when we travel from Venice to Rome since we will be routed through there. We are changing locations on a Monday so most of the main museums will be closed but we could still take a stroll and visit a few places. There is a train that leaves Venice at 8:30ish so we should have 6 hours or so in Florence before we would need to head to Rome.

What are your thoughts? Would it be worth the hassle? I am not certain about how much time we would burn with the left luggage, etc. Thank you for your expert opinions!!
