3 nights left in Italy after cruise

Jump to last reply

In May, we will be on a Celebrity cruise that begins in Rome and ends in Venice. We will have a day in Rome before we leave on the ship and 3 extra nights at the end of the cruise. The cruise arrives in Venice at 1pm on a Thursday and we'll have to disembark on Friday morning. Our flight leaves Rome on Monday at 6pm.

So we are trying to determine how to spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Italy. One option is to stay in Venice and head back to Rome on Sunday.
Another option is to take the train to Florence either later on Friday (so we can see more of Venice) or Sat. early am and make Florence a home base for Sat. and Sunday. If we do that, we'd like to take a day tour to tuscany/siena and winery and another day tour to pisa.
Or, we can rent a car from Venice and drive to Tuscany and stay in the countryside.

Since our time is limited, I am not sure which would make the most sense for us. The idea of the tuscan villages really appeals to me but perhaps as a day trip out of Florence, that may be easiest. Then I've read how Venice is so amazing and I am thinking we don't have enough time there.
