My husband and I are from Manila and will visiting Italy in May. total of 15 days only. Our itinerary is:
Bellagio - 2 nights
Milan - 2 nights
Venice - 2 nights
Florence - 3 nights
Siena - 1 night
Assisi - 1 night
Rome - 4 nights
Now I'm a bit worried that changing hotels very frequently will be too tiring. What do you think? What if we make the following changes?
Bellagio - 4 nights, then make a day trip to Milan. or maybe 3 nights in Bellagio and 3 nights in Venice?
Siena - 2 nights and delete Assisi in the itinerary? we are staying is Castella di Petrata in Assisi and I am quite looking forward to that.....
Another concern is the travel from 1 city to the next. Our port of entry is Milan. From Malpensa to Bellagio to Milan, I booked a car rental with driver so no problem with that.
each of us has a 26" spinner luggage + a 25L backpack. do you think it will be difficult doing the following:
train from Milan to Venice (+vaporetto to hotel)
train from Venice to Florence
pickup car rental from Peretola airport
drive to Siena, then to Assisi
Return car rental in Perugia
train from Perugia to Rome
How's the weather in May in the areas that we will be visiting? What clothes do we need to bring? Are there self-service laundry in Italy?
