Where to go in March??

Jump to last reply

Hello foderites. I am planning to stop in Europe for one week after a vacation to Africa before heading back to Canada. It will be the first week of March and we are hoping for somewhere that is hopefully not raining every day or too cold. I know you can't predict the weather, but we can eliminate northern Europe I think.

We are considering Italy. My husband and I spent a couple of weeks in Florence , Cinque Terre and Tuscany three years ago and loved it. We based ourselves for most of the time in San Quinca D'Orcho which was amazing, and did day trips from there. That trip was in October.

This time I am going with another woman, both in our early 60s, and want something different, (but just as amazing :)) Neither one of us is really keen on driving, so busses or trains would be preferable.
We would like to base ourselves in one town for 5-7 nights and go from there to a couple of nearby towns.

We both like smaller towns, medieval or older places with some history and charm. We have both been to Florence, although may have to fly in and out of there to head south.

My thoughts are :
Tuscany area
Amalfi Coast (Pompei) area
or Sicily.

Being as we don't have a car, would the Amalfi Coast be too hilly to get around? It looks like most places are up steep hills. A few stairs and hills are fine, but don't want a marathon of them.

Given the time of year and the fact we don't care to drive (especially in Sicily as I have read nightmare reports on that ), has anyone travelled to these areas early March?

Thanks so much for any direction on this.
