Third time in Italy - any suggestions?

Jump to last reply

We got frequent flyer miles business class tickets to Italy, last 2 weeks in October, arriving in Venice and departing from Rome. We have 12 nights and would love recommendations for our long overdue third trip to Italy.

First time we visited Italy we spent 2 1/2 weeks in Venice, Florence, Siena, Tuscany and Verona, driving a lot. Second time, we saw Rome for 2 days, left on a Windstar cruise that stopped at Pompeii and Taormina and ended in Venice, where we spent a few more nights.

We prefer not to drive this trip and thought we would spend 3 nights in Venice and 5 nights in Rome, with the balance spent in Bologna (?), Ferrara (?), or some other place accessible by train that we haven't visited . Should we instead head south of Rome, maybe to see Herculaneum or Capri and skip a stop between Venice and Rome? Or is there some other place to visit tbetween Venice and Rome hat we haven't seen before that anyone thinks would be a great choice?

I want to do it all and see everything, but. . . . So please give me your suggestions and recommendations. Thanks everyone.
