itinerary from milan to rome
 
in the fall we're flying into Milan and after 2 weeks we depart from rome. Can anyone suggest an itinerary also focusing on the tuscany area?

Planning an itinerary in Tuscany is a little bit like asking us to pick the curtains, wallpaper and place mats for your kitchen.

Hello Marla, You have many good options. I assume you are driving--that would be a big factor. Here is a rough start to a potential itinerary:<BR>Land Milan--to the Lakes--3 nites<BR>To the Ligurian coast--2 nites<BR>To Tuscany--near Siena---4 nites<BR>To Rome--drop car in Orvieto--4 nites<BR><BR>Hope this helps !

Is Orvieto worth an overnight stay in its own right?<BR>
