First trip to Italy - need help planning the Tuscany part

Jump to last reply

Hi. My husband and I are planning our very first trip to Italy in November! We're flying into Venice on the 7th and out of Rome on the 20th. (We're in our 50s and Canadian, by the way.)

We want to spend time in Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Cinque-Terre and Rome. We know that's a lot to squeeze into two weeks, though.

Here's tentatively what we're thinking, but we're open to suggestions for improving it.

Nov. 7-9 - Venice
Nov 10-11 Florence
Nov 12-16 - Tuscany (base ourselves somewhere, rent a car, and take day trips to Tuscan towns and Cinque-Terre)
Nov 17-19 - Rome

In addition to general feedback on this plan, I'm specifically wondering about the Tuscany portion of the trip. Where's a good place to base ourselves? Is the Cinque-Terre too far for a day trip? (We really want to hike the Cinque-Terre and we might never make it back to Italy so this might be our only chance...but maybe it's too much for one trip? What do you think?)

I'm looking forward to reading all your suggestions and advice. Thank you!
