My wife and I will be travelling to Italy for the first time in March, flying in from the UK before returning to Australia. I'd love some advice on our proposed itinerary and any things we should be aware of.
Day 1 Thursday - Arrive in Venice mid afternoon
Day 2 Friday - Venice
Day 3 Saturday - leave early on train for Florence
Day 4 Sunday - Florence
Day 5 Monday - leave early on train for Rome
Day 6 Tuesday - Rome
Day 7 Wednesday - Rome
Day 8 Thursday - fly back to UK
Questions I have.
Is this a reasonable itinerary?
Should we start with Venice or Rome given the days of the week we are there?
Should we use guides given our limited time?
What should we prioritise in each place?
Anything we should be aware of that most people don't think of? Airlines, transport, tourist traps etc
Thank you in advance
