what to do with extra 5 days in Italy?

Jump to last reply

We have done the major tourist sights like Milan, Venice, Florence, Pisa and Rome back in 2010. On our upcoming second trip to Italy, our itinerary is staying in Sorrento for 7 days to give us enough time to do Capri, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii and Naples. After that, we will stay another 4 days in Rome and then head home. What we can not decide on is where to go on the first 5 days when we arrive in Rome. We thought of Venice or Florence again but really not so keen since we have done the major sights. Can anyone please suggest what else we can do for this 5 days in either Florence or Venice after the obvious tourist sights? What else are there to see and do in both places? Genoa, Verona, Padua, Cremona, Bari also came up on our list. We are open for any suggestions. Another thought is maybe from Rome and go down south but not as far as Sicily before heading to Sorrento.
