1st trip to Italy...need advice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I would love to take a vacation to Italy. He is deployed with the military so we have 14 days in June that we can meet up to explore Italy and spend time together. Since I only have basically 2 months to plan this trip, I do not know much about Italy, and we would love to do as much as possible while we are there, I am thinking about booking a 9 day tour, such as one that goes through Rome, Florence and Venice. Then we would have a couple days before and/or after the tour to just spend time together and explore on our own.

I have read good things about the tours, but I am wondering if it is an enjoyable experience for couples in their late 20s? Do you get as much out of them as you pay for? And what tours would you suggest?

If you don't think the tour is the best idea for our situation, any suggestions for how to plan a trip to Italy at the last minute?
