Trip to Italy: Venice, Tuscany, Rome, Positano

Jump to last reply

Hello, My husband and I (mid-thirties) are looking to take a 11-12 day trip to Italy for our one year anniversary. I would love any below suggestions on the itinerary below. We will be traveling via train throughout our travels. My husband has never been to Italy, but I have been twice. I want to be sure to show him the typical must sees but I also want to experience a few new things that I also haven't experienced.

1. Fly into Venice. Spend two nights 3 days in Venice. Any great 4 star hotel recommendations that are reasonably priced? Any must dos in Venice or great restaurant recs? I do not have much experience in Venice. We definitely will take a gondola ride but what else?

2.We would love to stay two nights in the Tuscan countryside. This is where I have the most questions. Any great hotel recommendations in Tuscan countryside? Scenery is key. We would love to be able to bike or walk through vineyards. My husband doesn't drink, so a winery visit is not for us. A reasonable half day cooking class would be fun. A picnic or horseback riding would be great. We do like spas and would be open to this, but I would want to make sure the majority of the time is taking in nature while in Tuscany. Any thoughts/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I assume we would take a train from Venice to Florence, but how does one then get to the train from the Tuscan country side.

3. Our next stop is Rome. My favorite! I know this city fairly well, but would welcome any out of the box recommendations. Also, what would be the best way to get to Rome from the Tuscan countryside? We will stay 3 or 4 nights here.

4. Then we will go to Positano for 2 nights. I have never been here, We were thinking of taking the train from Rome to Naples. Taking a private car from Naples to Positano, stopping to see Pompeii on the way. Then maybe a day trip to Revello via private car the next day? Not sure yet about Capri or not. Other recs? Then I suppose we would fly home from Naples?? Not sure the best way to get back to Naples.


I appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks!
