Venice - Florence - Rome

Jump to last reply

I'm sure there have already been a few posts about this in the past, but I haven't been able to find exactly what I want. My husband and I are in the preliminary stages of planning our trip to Italy in October and would love some advice. We're 28 and 29 and pretty active (run half marathons regularly so we're both in pretty good shape) so we're not too worried about walking/getting around, but maybe we should be???

Our tentative plan is to leave the east coast on a Friday and arrive in Venice Saturday morning. Stay in Venice Saturday and Sunday, go to Florence Monday morning, stay in Florence Monday-Wednesday, and then Rome Wednesday night-Saturday morning.

All of the blogs say not to travel around too much, so we're trying to keep the cities to a minimum, but I would love to take a day trip to Naples if possible from Rome (my family has roots in Naples). Is this enough time in each city? Should we cut out Florence? We're pretty big foodies and not as much into art if that helps at all...

Any advice and insight would be greatly appreciated!
