Rome, Tuscany & Umbria

Jump to last reply

I need some advice on where to visit during a three week visit to Italy in late September 2018.
My wife and I (later 60's) are visiting Italy for our second time. On our last trip , in 2011 we spent 4 nights in Venice, 3 nights in Florence, 7 nights in northern Tuscany and 7 nights in Rome.

We are flying in to FCO on September 20th and renting a car for two weeks, dropping off the car in Orvieto then taking the train to Rome for 5 nights.

My plans presently are to visit four luxury resorts and B&B for three or four nights each. These are in Tuscany and Umbria. We plan to eat and drink well, have couple massages, visit wineries, go truffle hunting and tour Umbria and Tuscan towns.

Is this too much time to spend in these two regions? Or should we try to visit other parts of Italy ( Milan, Lake Como, the Amalfi Coast) ? This will probably be our last trip to Italy since we are older and have many other places to explore.

One consideration is we don't want to spend too much time getting from one place to another.
We both also consider our time in Tuscany on our 2011 trip some of the most enjoyable times we have had traveling.

The only firm commitment so far is our SkyMiles travel round trip to FCO September 20-October 9, 2018

Please offer your advice.


Thank you in adnvance
