Trip Report Venice, Florence, Rome 13 days

Jump to last reply

Preface - this was our 6th trip to V&F and 10th to R. We were accompanied by good friends who had never traveled abroad.
Arrived 8am Rome airport, took the train into Rome then directly to Venice. Spent additional 3 days walking Venice, & visiting Murano and Burano.
Took the train to Florence; spent the first and 4th day walking Florence and two day trips by car to Assisi; then Siena, San Gimignano and simply driving Tuscan roads.
Took the train to Rome, no day trips. Spent one entire day - the Vatican, one day the Forum, Colosseum and Palatine Hill. One day the other major sites; Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Navona, etc. One day Lateran and near by sites and the final day the Capitoline Museums.

You will be going back to Italy again, so I suggest doing Rome and north or Rome and south.
