I'm going to Italy and Europe for the first time and on top of that doing it alone. I'm flying into Venice and out of Rome. Any advice you guys can give me on where to spend my time? Maybe I'm being too greedy and trying to do too much! I'm also not very happy about spending 3 nights in Rome at the end of my trip, but I don't know where to allocate my time. Here is my itinerary currently but it's flexible.
