So my buddy from college and I are going to be traveling to Italy for the first time in mid-May. We're only able to go for about 8 nights. We'll be spending half that time in Taormina, Sicily. The other 4 nights are up in the air and we're debating between Venice or Sorrento. Both places seem beautiful.
We're both in our late 30's. I'd say architecture, genuine/rustic dining, and the overall cultural experience are our interest. To give an example of our interests, I took a trip to southern Spain a year ago and fell in love with Granada! Not a crazy big city but large enough. Was historic and beautiful.
I'm sorry to be so vague, but we're only in the early planning stages. I'd surely appreciate any feedback.
