Venice or Rome

Jump to last reply

Splitting off a topic that came up from a separate thread, I'm trying to figure out whether to go to Rome or Venice as part of our 25th wedding anniversary next September. I have decided I want to visit Tuscany (both my wife and I want to go there) and Lake Como (my wife has had a desire to go there for many years). The issue is which additional city we visit, as part of our two week trip.

My original plan was to have five days in Rome. Neither of us have been there, there is obviously a lots to see and do - and a part of me thinks it's slightly weird to go to Italy and not go to Rome. In short, we both want to visit Rome at some point.

However, several people have made very strong recommendations to go to Venice, even at the expense of Rome, for the romantic aspect.

Both sound wonderful. My current thinking is just in favor of Rome because I assume it's ALSO romantic (in a different way) but, with five days, there would also be much more to see as compared to Venice. But maybe I am mistaken.

In short, I would indeed like a romantic location, obviously, but having beautiful and interesting places to see would also be a big deal for us. Does Venice offer that?

By the way, I assume the food is going to be great on both places :)

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Mark
