Still itinerary-tweaking with my friend for our Italy trip next late spring. Your thoughts?
2 nights Milan (including Milan mainly to see an opera at La Scala, but will see a few other sites)
3 nights Venice
5 nights Florence (including day trip to Pisa/Lucca, and likely a half-day cooking class in the city)
3 nights in Tuscany (hill towns, wineries, etc.)
5 nights in Rome
The opera would be the evening of the second night in Milan, so we may be risking lingering jet lag, but I think we would probably be fine.
We aren’t planning any day trips out of Rome, so we could perhaps move one night from Rome to, say, Venice. Thoughts?
