My GF and I are visiting Italy for 10 nights in September. We will spend first 4 nights in Rome and want 3 nights in Venice. We are flying out of Milan but we don't have much interest in spending any actual time visiting Milan. We have been throwing some ideas at each other about how to spend the other 3 nights; we originally thought about Florence but neither of us is sure about spending 3 nights there.
I would very much appreciate answers to any of these ?s:
- Is trying to spend 2 nights in Lake Como after Venice reasonable? Would it be too hectic to get to from Venice (or too hectic to get to Milan's airport)? If we did it, it would be after Venice and we would head directly to Milan to fly out. I am a little concerned that it would be too much travel time and too much effort.
- Would 1 or 2 nights in Florence and a day trip elsewhere (Siena?) be the only reasonable option between our Rome & Venice stays?
I tend to think that Lake Como would be too much for this trip but I would rather hear from others with experience.
I have the RS Italy 2014 and it has a ton of great info.
