We're are visiting Italy next summer, for 3 weeks in July, any specific time to come that are best? 1st 3 weeks, or last 3 weeks? It will be Mum and DD20, we plan to travel around by train and public transport. Our only commitment is, we have to be in Milan for July 12th for a concert.
Anywho what I was thinking was;
Milan, 3 nights [2 full days, 1 for concert and shopping, 1 for Duomo + other sights]
Venice 4 nights
Florence 3/4 nights, including a day trip to Pisa. Is this too much time in Florence? Waht other sights are there?
Rome 4 nights [1 day for Anicent Rome, 1 for Vactien City, 1 for piazzas]
Naples 3/4nights, including day trip to Pompeiii
Amalfi Coast 4 nights -- Relax
I want to visit Capri, would if be best to day trip from Naples or Amalfi Coast?
Opinons, Suggestions Please. I also wanted to visit the lakes area, and some small towns/villages, but I haven't researched far enough yet, but Florence is a good based to explore villages?
Any recs on small towns to visit?
We're interested in the culture, just taking some time to relax eating and drinking local cuisine, relaxing in piazzas. Architecture, photography, food, duomos really interest me
Is there a better order for this, starting in a certain city first?
