Venice ----> Perugia ----> Rome

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan out days for this trip for mid-September. Including the day of arrival (9AM) we have either 13 or 14 days. Could wander Venice the day of arrival or go to Burano or Treviso.

The focus of this trip is supposed to be Umbria. We do not rent a car and travel mostly by train and only when absolutely necessary by bus.

We've been to Venice twice before. However, we'll be arriving in Venice and there are several very good day trips from here. Of course, a day or part of a fews days to wander around Venice isn't a bad idea. If possible I'd like to keep this to 4 days.
Burano, Treviso, Padua, Vicenza and Verona (Mantova?) are on the short list. Ferrara and bike on the wall as in Lucca? Worth it?

Possibly Padua & Vicenza on the same day? Burano and Treviso on the same day? Verona & Mantova? Does this sound doable for 3-4 days?

Perugia. Never been so some time in Perugia in addition to day trips is good.
On the short list are Spello, Spoleto, Gubbio & Todi. I thought I had another town but it escapes me. Comments on timing?

We've been to Rome a couple of times over the years. The main reason for Rome is to visit Orvieto and to return home. Also, a day or so in Rome isn't a bad idea.

Two choices. Go from Perugia to Rome and visit Orvieto as a day trip. Or, stop in Orvieto on the way from Perugia and sleep over. The first has the advantage of one less hotel change. The second has the advantage of sleeping in a smaller town and wander more in the evening when the tourists are gone. Comments?

Thanks for comments and suggestions.
