My husband and I are traveling Italy by train for 2 weeks in mid-late September. We would like to use our last day in Florence to day trip to a hill town, but since we have already booked all our accommodations our itinerary is pretty much set as follows:
Day 1: Arrive in Rome- train to Venice
Day 2: Venice
Day 3: Venice to CT (staying in Riomaggiore)
Days 4-5: CT
Day 6: CT to Florence
Days 7-8: Florence *would like to day trip on last day
Day 9: Florence to Positano (Florence to Naples; CV train to Sorrento; bus to Positano)*
Days 10-11: Positano
Day 12: Positano to Rome
Days 13-14: Rome
Day 15 fly back to US
Would it be better to use that last full day in Florence to take a train or bus to a hill town? Or could we fit it in to our seemingly long day of traveling from Florence to Positano? Also, I think we would like to see a vineyard or something food related, but our choices seem most limited by how we can get there by train or bus. Any recommendations on how to make this work smoothly would be greatly appreciated.
**I saw another post mention the CV train being problematic recently- would we be better off taking a train from Florence to Salerno and then a boat to Positano? Grazie mille!
