Hate to tell you but there's no list. Different cities appeal to different people in different ways. You should have an idea of the kind of experience, landscape, art, architecture etc that you are looking for the come back with questions. Rent travel videos and read some guide books.

hi, richard,

a friend just came back from abruzzo. she said it was lovely and very unspoilt. you could start in assisi and move on from there.

or in November, sicily would be lovely.

regards, ann

Why Palermo? Is Milan even an option?

You have been to the big three. However, in my opinion, close behind are Lake Como and Amalfi areas.

Our next trip to Italy (along with 8 of our closest friends) will be a week in a Villa in Tuscany and then 3 nights in Positano.

The man said November.
I agree with Palermo.

Why Palermo?

1) Southernmost large city in Italy, so comparatively warm in November.

2) Cultural treasures (Norman Palace, Monreale etc.), excellent museums and the opera season will be in full swing.

3) Excellent food, as everywhere in Sicily

Hope this helps,
Andre

P.S. Milano is the absolute pits in winter, dark, cold and terrible smog. Only for hardcore shoppers or people who have to go there on business...

Siracusa, in Sicily and also Pompei and so, close to Pompei the Penisola Sorrentina and, last but not least: Urbino, la città ideale
