Vacation Help - Rome/Tuscany

Jump to last reply

We are planning our 2009 vacation to Italy and would appreciate your help. We have read a lot of good information on this site as well as other travel books.

Here is our itinerary.

Fly from Toronto Canada to London Heathrow and then to Rome.

Rome 4 nights.
Then high speed train to Florence and stay 2 nights.

Train from Florence to Cinque Terre (Vernazza) and stay 2 nights.

Train from Vernazza to Pisa and stay one night. Rent a car and travel to San Gimignano and stay 4 nights and see Tuscany. Then back to Pisa to drop off the car and fly to London Gatwick and then back to Heathrow to go home.

Does this seem like a good amount of travel in these days? We want to enjoy the Italian lifestyle and don't always want to be on the rush.

A couple of extra questions - are the trains as easy as everyone says? We are a couple in our 50s who are very active and enjoy "car travel" vacations but heard that it would be better to take the trains in Italy with the exception of Tuscany. Do you agree?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
