Too Much?? Not Enough??

Jump to last reply

I'd like advice/opinions on the things we have planned for our Italy trip. I've done quite a bit of research online but it seems like there are lots of different 'plans'. One person talks about places that are "must see" while others say those same places are "ok". My plan is to enjoy the beauty and culture of the cities we visit (Venice, Florence, Rome) but don't want to have so much scheduled that we miss out on the ambience of the surroundings.
Here is what we have in mind right now.

VENICE- 3 days. We are actually flying in to Venice on Italy's Labor Day. Didn't realize that at the time we booked our flights, but.... now we can say we were there to celebrate :) In all honesty I think I could wander the streets of Venice the entire 3 days and be happy. I know there is so much history and beauty to take in. Would I be foolish to just wander and drink wine and eat gelato?
After three days in Venice we are taking train to

FLORENCE for 2 days. I want to see the statue of David and we also want to take a day trip to Leaning tower of Pisa. Other than that, we have no definite plans.

ROME is next for 3 days. Here we want to visit the Colesseum and may take a private tour of this. Also want to see the Sistene Chapel and Vatican. Do we dare take another day trip away from Rome or just walk around and investigate all the beautiful places??

Please share you own experiences and ideas. I truly appreciate any and all your replies. Thanks so much
PS We are going to first week in May
