You cannot cover four cities in six days!

What are you going to see in such a little time?

Choose one of them, maximum two.

Hi Catherina,

I agree with the other person who posted. You can't do four cities justice in six days. I would skip Milan and just to go Rome for four/five days (you'll need it and won't want to leave!) then take the train up to Pisa for one night.

You can fly out of Pisa back to London.

Easyjet can be quite reasonably priced depending on the day/time of travel. British Airways also fly to both cities.

Or, visit Venice and Milan instead of Pisa and Rome. Personally, I don't think you can beat Rome but I lived there for many years so I am biased. Milan is not very attractive, frankly, but Venice is special. Just don't go in the height of summer as it will very crowded and can get a bit smelly.

I hope you enjoy your trip.

Kathryn

Agreed, do two cities (I'd recommend Rome and Venice) and you'll need it.

Rome needs at least 2 days, preferably 3 to 4. We it well in 3 days but stayed just outside the Vatican City which cut down commuting time plus let us rest in between.

Venice is absolutely amazing - try to stay at least 2 days and inside Venice if you can afford to (rather than Metro, having done both)
