Trip Report Trip Report - Venice, Umbria & Rome - Sept 2013

Jump to last reply

We (my wife and I) returned from a trip to Italy that took place during the first half of September.

The focus of the trip was Umbria (We had been to Tuscany two years before).

However, since we arrived in Venice (we’d been there twice before), I planned several day trips to Padua, Veronna, Vicenza and Ferrara.

After Venice we went to Perugia that served as our base for Umbria. I planned day trips to Spello, Gubbio, Todi and Spoleto.

We ended in Rome (we’d been there twice before) and spent two days there.

Since we were staying in cities for the entire trip, I put an overnight in Orvieto between Perugia and Rome.

I should add that we have never rented a car in Europe. We travel mostly by train and a little by bus. A couple of years ago in Provence we took a half day mini-bus tour to Gorde, Roussillon and Les Baux.

Other than a city bus driver in Spoleto who appeared to be amused that we didn’t know where to get off his bus (he provided no help), and a very bad bus ride back from Gubbio, transportation worked out well. It just required some planning.

Since I planned the Venice part of the trip separately from the Perugia part, I didn’t pay attention to the fact that I had too many day trips. Four destinations in addition to the bases was just too many.

If I had it to plan over again I would drop at least one day trip (maybe more) from each of Venice and Perugia. Also, I would have included Orvieto as a day trip from Rome instead of an overnight on its own. Just too much luggage hassle for what we got out of it. Orvieto is very nice but not any more beautiful than Rome at night.

It appears I’m focusing on the negative but in reality there were very few. I’m just pointing them out.

As it turned out we enjoyed the wandering days in the main bases of Venice, Perugia and Rome at least as much as the day trips to the smaller towns/cities.

At one point I left my wife at a flea market in Perugia and I wandered around taking photos. I saw a building off in the distance with a deck on the roof. I walk until I got to the building (University of Perugia for Foreigners), walked in and made my way up any stairs I saw to the roof. I pretended I belonged there and I guess my camera didn’t cause an issue.

Somebody on the roof for a smoke left and locked the door behind him. I made my way thru an open window into an office and walked by some people into a hallway and back down the stairs. Nothing like some adventure.
