My husband and I will be in Italy for the first two weeks of September and want to see everything like most of us in a very short amount of time. I know it might seems too cramped but we are ready for that just so we can see as much as possible. I like to share my itinerary with you seasoned travelers and will appreciate your suggestions very much. A quick note about us: we are 30 yrs old, healthy and fit (I'm saying this just to clarify we can run-run-run without so much of a relaxing time) two food lovers :) We both love nature, unique sights, not much into museums (although I like to see a few) and churches, love hillside towns, country side, vineyards, picturesque anything, local people and food... Also note we don't know any Italian. (will try to learn some basic stuff before leaving)

So here it goes:
8/30 - Leaving LAX to VCE
8/31 - Arrive at VCE A.M. and stay 2 nights
9/2 - Leave Venice in A.M. for Bologna (we can take train there or rent). Stay there 4 nights and see Padua, Ferrera and Florence. Maybe some other places
9/6 - Leave Bologna in A.M. for Siena or another small town. Stay there for 6 nights and do day trips.
9/12 - Leave Siena in A.M for Rome.
9/15 - Leave/arrive FCO for LAX

Is this plan doable? This is basically a rough plan, nothing set yet. But as I mentioned earlier, we would like to see as much as possible as we most likely won't return to Italy for vacation again. Any suggestions for places that we should consider? Appreciate your comments.

Thanks.
