My wife and I are still trying to finalize our itinerary for a 10 or 11 nt trip to Italy in Sept.
Our original itinerary was as follows:
3 nts Positano
After speaking with relatives recently...they all seemed to have a this itinerary....Fly into Florence (one stop Rome), then train to Rome, then train to Positano. They all seemed to skip Venice.
I always wanted to see Venice, but their trip did flow nicely, and I understand there is more to do in Florence than Venice. I was told by numerous people, you only need 1 1/2 - 2 days in Venice. I wasn't sure if it was worth sticking to my original itinerary...or do theirs and skip Venice.
I had thought about doing all 4 cities...Fly into Venice - 2 nts, train to Florence - 2 nts, Rome - 3nts, Positano - 3 nts. But that seems to be a lot of traveliing, and taxi's, and checking in an out of hotels.
Any comments/ advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance.
