Italy:been there done that-now what next?-late may/early june

Went to Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Naples and Rome (for 3 days each) two years ago. Two adults, no kids, and we have about 12 nights to spend there. We are into food, art, local culture, and architecture. While we would like to get back to all of the above places, we would really like to see new things. If you have suggestions, send them! Thanks!

Do you mean you'd like to see new things in those same places, or travel elsewhere in Italy? If the latter, I'd recommend the lakes. If the former, what did you see the first time?

We pretty much covered the cities we went to (except for Rome), so travelling elsewhere is probably what we're looking to do. Been thinking maybe the lakes, emilia-romana, sicily, etc.

My own first choices would be: Umbria (somewhat similar to Tuscany) or Sicily

The Cinque Terre was one of our favorite places as well as the ital. Lakes. We are into the same things you are but also did hiking in the lakes area and you can walk frome one village to another(5 in all)in C.T. We are going to Sicily in April...been there?

I prefer the north and would suggest Veneto (senza Venezia) and Emilia-Romagna. Use Montegrotto or Abano Terme as a base (health resort near Padova, near a train station with good service, many good hotels for not much money) and make day trips to some combination of Padova, Verona, Vicenza (for architecture), Treviso, Ferrara, Modeno, Parma, Bologna, Lago di Garda, Dolomites. Food, culture, art - there's no shortage in these regions. And a mud bath and massage at the hotel after you've seen the sights. You'll love it. See this web site for an example of the type of hotel that exists in Montegrotto, there are many others: "http://www.hotelsollievoterme.com/default_home_ing.html"

Try Assisi, San Marino, Capri. You will also be in the big towns again so try some "cultural" stuff like go to a soccer game. Milano (the Duomo) then on to Como (Italian lakes). Try doing a "bed and breakfast" at a Tuscan villa and get to know the natives (and their cat).
