Hi there, I am planning my long awaited 3 month trip around Europe starting April 2008
I have 11 full nights to see Italy.
I will be in the south of france (nice) before heading to Italy, this is my so far itinerary which i am considering
2 nights venice (from nice-prob o/night train) 3 nights florence/inc day trip to san gimignano/siena 4 nights rome 3 nights sorrento/amalfi coast/day trip to capri
my ques are:
is the above doable? i really want to see the amalfi coast for a few days, is this too out of my way from rome? i was considering 2 days cinque terre instead as its prob easier to get to as after amalfi i need to get to ancona to catch an o/night ferry to split for a week yacht tour, another option i considered is skipping venice and adding those 2 days somewhere, then once i am done with my week on the croatian damatian coast and a few days in slovenia , to head to venice from there for a couple of days. i will have a 2 month rail pass but this expires when i leave italy so i would need to purchase a seperate point to point from slovenia to venice , then from venice to germany. what are your opinions on this?
any help guidance would be greatly appreciated thanks all
