My husband and I will be in Italy for 5 weeks next August. We want a relaxing stay, but also a stay where we see things. My rough idea is that we spend one week in Cinque Terre, then travel to Venice for one week, then Florence for one week, the Rome for one week, then Sorrento for one week.
My intention is to book vacation rental apartments in each place for one week, and then do day trips to surrounding areas to see other things. (We will not have a car)
1) Does the order of places make sense based on transportation
2) Any recommendations for vacation rentals you have stayed in? (under 800 euros per week)
3) What day trips are a must do (that we can do without a car)?
Thanks for your input.
