4 weeks in Italy- Rome, Cinque Terre, Florence, ?

My husband and I will be in Italy for a month in September. Ideally we'd like to have a base and explore the area around. So maybe split the trip into 2 weeks at 2 separate bases. Could you give us recommendations of towns to look into? We like to hike and/or relax near a water-body (swimming lake would be awesome!) at our base home. As for what we want to see- Rome, Florence, Naples, Cinque Terre and small-town life with great food options. We love to cook and would like to learn more about Italian cuisine and life as well.

Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

I can recommend Prato Verde near Lucca. They rent out flats, close to their family-owned restaurant with very traditional Italian cooking. Nice private beaches are 10-15 minutes away, Lucca is nearby and Firenze can be reached on a daytrip It's also a beautiful spot with swimming pool and nice nature.
