I'm currently awaiting for my husband's work to give the approval for leave for our Europe trip around April/May and would love your thoughts/recommendations (length of stay, travel - car, train or bus, comments about the destinations, accommodation or restaurant recommendations) about my very vague brainstorm. Most of the trip will be in Italy with the final stop in Austria to visit some friends. We are planning to have 3 weeks off, with the plan to spend 2 weeks of it in Italy, and are travelling from Australia.
Currently, I'm look at the following breakdown.
Rome 3 nights
Siena 2 nights
Florence 3 nights
Cinque Terre 3 nights
Milan OR Lake Como 3 nights
Our travel style is definitely more on the adventurous (looking to do some hikes and swims!) and love enjoying the vibe/culture of the countries. We love eating and are super excited to invigorate our taste buds with local food! We're not as history fanatics in comparison to some of our friends but definitely will visit some iconic sites in Rome and Florence.
Thank you in advance!
