Italy in May itinerary

Jump to last reply

Booked airfare to Milan on an impulse. Emirates was offering non-stop round-trip air for two JFK-MXP for $800, including all taxes and fees. DH and I weren't planning on going to Italy this Spring, but it was too good to pass up. DH and I have been to Rome and Pompeii, and to Sicily within the last few years. Those are the only places in Italy DH has been. I went to college in Siena in 1980 and went to Florence every weekend, and also traveled around and went to Venice for a few days, took trips around Tuscany, as well as other parts Italy. (I was also in Italy way back in 1970 when I went to Europe with my parents but that was so long ago). I haven't been back to Tuscany or northern Italy in 35 years. Neither of us have ever been to Milan. I was thinking of this as a possible way to spend the 10 days:

3 nights in Milan (one at the start, 2 at the end)
4 nights in Florence, with a day trip to Siena
3 nights in Venice

Suggestions? Would you spend more or less time in any of the places?

I would love to go to Cinque Terre or around Lake Como, but I really don't think it's feasible, unless I drastically cut something else down. We like cities, small towns, wineries, pretty much anything. I got a guidebook so I could read about the areas that are easily accessible from Milan to see if there is anything else I might want to substitute, but I thought I would ask the experts here at Fodor's. Thanks for any help, advice, etc.
