Looking for feedback to see if this looks ok as a general idea so I can book the plane tickets and start planning the details. Planning to go in mid October 2013.
Couple quick things about us - we aren't that in to art/museums and not big eaters. We don't have much desire to be in large crowds unless it is something we must see, like Rome's main sites so that is why I only have 1-1.5 days in Rome (and we aren't spending time in Florence, but rather picking up a motorcycle to head into countryside). We love beautiful scenery and prefer to see it on motorcycle or horse when possible - in this case those will have to be day trips). We do appreciate seeing historic sites/buildings/streets/statues/etc. My husband gets pretty cranky if we are on a forced march - so I can't jam pack a whole lot into every single day.
-Day 1 arrive Rome 8:30am
-Day 2 = See main sites in Rome, possible train to Florence in evening.
-Day 3 Tuscany - Motorcycle rental out of Florence Harley Davidson for touring around Tuscany (TBD as to where) for the day
-Day 4 Rent car and head into Tuscany - TBD, we'd like to do horseback riding so maybe drive to where we can do that, drive through country side towards next destination (heading to Cinque Terre). Was suggested to drive to Pisa and then take train to Cinque Terre, but we may want to drive up more north if it is possible to drop car closer to Cinque Terre.
- Day 5 Cinque Terre
- Day 6 Cinque Terre
- Day 7 Train to Lake Como
- Day 8 Lake Como area
- Day 9 Lake Como area
- Day 10 Lake Como to Venice via train
- Day 11 Venice
- Day 12 Fly out of Venice in am
Advice / suggestions / feedback on the skeleton of the schedule before we dig into details? Thanks!
