Milan to Rome ?

This is our second trip to Italy-we hit the usual cities Florence, Rome,and Venice on our first trip. We visited Sienna and San Gig. on the first trip.

Would appreciate opinions for this trip with 12 days.

Arrive in Milan,drive to Bologna and visit Parma, Modena, and Ravella(3 days). Next drive from there to Umbria(3 days) then to Orvieto (2 days) and then in Rome for 3 days.

We drove from Venice to Florence to Rome on last trip which we really enjoyed and plan to rent a car again.

Thanks...

If you are interested in art history I would really recommend Ravenna. The mosaics there are amazing

Do you think this schedule is too hectic since we have been to Rome before?
We stayed 4 days in Rome the last trip and really want to see the non-touristy sights even though we realize this is not nearly enough time to do Rome justice.

Seems you are overlooking the small besutiful towns of Italy. I highly recommend you buy the book by Bently "The Beautiful Villages of Italy" (or something like that,) and choose a few. We are going back to Italy this year for two months, and have planned our whole trip around these villages. You really appreciate Italy if you stay on the organic farms "Agriturismos", and search on the internet websites and VRBO. barb74
