Jump to last reply

My wife and I would welcome advice in developing an itinerary for ten weeks in Italy. We want to see as much as possible.

All advice is appreciated, particularly with respect to lodging, car rental, sites to see, restaurants too good to miss, anything involving water, romance, cooking classes, hikes, wine tasting and logistics. We will be flying from east coast U.S.
