We are 3 ladies in our 60's and have flights in May arriving in Nice and 8 days later leaving from Pisa. We are staying the first night in Nice and the last night in Pisa .We are hoping to travel by train and stay in 2 places along the way for 3 nights each.
We like quiet places but would either travel in the area by bus or hire a car in one of our stopovers.
We are not worried about beaches -we would much rather see scenic villages with interesting churches, buildings and scenery .
We have travelled quite a lot in Italy and enjoyed Calabria , Puglia, the Lakes and the Amalfi Coast -we also have enjoyed Provence and the French Alps so are hoping that we enjoy and could get a taste for this area of Italy
