A few considerations I have.

1) Food - We both enjoy walking and eating, well, anything and everything. In the range where we can afford a nice meal from time to time and am not super budget concious, but find that less fancy mom-and-pop type places off the beaten path tend to have the best food.

She is looking for seafood far and above other food style (more likely in Italy, I suppose), while I like, well, all Italian foods and some Austrian. We are the type of food lovers who would take a day trip to a separate city just for the food specialty. Which is why we have Bologna on our list. Not sure if it lives up to the hype.

Any other recommendations or suggestions for us?


2) Day Trips - Our hotels are all booked but I have a great levity between adjusting the day trips I have planned. Particularly in Tuscany and whether I choose Bratislava or an Austrian town to day trip from Vienna (or just stay in the city itself).

I like museums (more historical than art, but both really) and history, while my girlfriend likes fashion (and wants to do some shopping) and wants a day of hiking in nature, though she will have to tolerate the museums and churches.

Any suggestions or recommendations?

3) Transportation - We are picking a car up and dropping off in Florence. Otherwise, we will be travelling by train. We are planning on booking trains beforehand (she needs to with her visa), and am looking for ways to get the best train rates. The websites are awfully confusing

Thanks for your assistance and any suggestions you have.
