Italy - 12 Day Itinerary Recommendations

Jump to last reply


My husband and I are in the process of planning our first trip to Italy (and Europe). We are thinking about going for 14 days (12 days including travel) in May or June 2016. We're in our late 20's and enjoy delicious food/history/arts. We love to immerse ourselves in the culture of the city we're visiting. We are traveling from Kansas City (Go Royals!)

In terms of what we'd like to see in Italy... we were thinking of the following:
- Fly into Rome
- Amalfi Coast OR Cinque Terre
- Florence (day trips to Siena and Tuscany)
- Fly out of Venice

We would love to squeeze in Modena to go to Osteria Franescana - although, I'm not sure we will be able to squeeze it in the time frame that we have. I was thinking we could potentially go before we go to Venice. Thoughts?

We are foodies and open to any restaurant suggestions you have!

Lastly - we're open to renting a car, but being first-timers, I feel that the train might be our safest bet (in terms of getting around).

Thank you so much for your help! Looking forward to your advice. :)
