I wanted to post my finalized trip Itinerary to make sure I didn't miss anything or if there is anything else I should do! I have been researching and reading this forum for over a year now and I think I did well and have finished all my major purchases prior to departure. We are flying into Venice and out of Rome. We have a total on 14 nights on the ground. We will be arriving in late June.
Venice: 3 nights
- Bell Tower
Florence: 5 nights
- Galleria dell'Accademia
- Vespa Wine Tour
- Cooking Class with visit to Market
Rome: 6 nights
- Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon
- Vatican City (museums)
- Day Trip to Santa Marinella Beach
Flight, Train Tickets, and AirBnBs are already booked. We basically left every other day open so we can explore and get lost. Everything above has been purchased already (except beach day trip). We have our time slots either super early in the morning or late in the afternoon. We are packing light and only bringing a carry on. I have RS guidebook downloaded on my kindle and his audiobooks downloaded for all our site visits. I have offline maps downloaded and Google Translate on my phone. I have been practicing Italian as well. We are getting a CapitalOne Checking account to get cash at the ATM once there but plan on using CC as much as possible. We will be walking or using bus if needed. I already confirmed for Vespa we only need our US license and do not need IDP. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
