Venice and either Tuscany or the Veneto

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Italy in late September to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We'll have 11 days, including travel days. We definitely want to spend some time in Venice, as we've never been there together. We love food and wine, and we don't like to overschedule ourselves or feel obligated to visit every "must see" tourist attraction; we'd much rather wander around, get lost, find cute shops and restaurants, etc. I was thinking we should spend maybe four days in Venice (including a class at a highly recommended cooking school there), and then I'm looking for recommendations for the remainder of the trip.

While I could spend the rest of our time in Florence, my husband is definitely not a city person. Options would be a village not too far from Florence that would allow us to take a couple of day trips there or exploring the Veneto further.

All suggestions are welcome.
