Where to spend time in Italy

I'm planning a trip to Italy in September and am torn between destinations.  Should I do Rome and Sardinia or Amalfi Coast and Pompeii or somewhere else?

I am planning a 10 day trip.
Any advice would be appreciated :)

If the past teases the imagination and good food makes you enjoy life, Italy is the best place for you! Then why not visit the first capital of the West to the world RAVENNA ?! 8 of its monuments are inscribed on the list of Unesco World Heritage! 

...and ...If you think that Good Food is a must for your Soul...Take a look on ! Enjoy ^_*

Italy is great, wherever you go! These are some of my favourite places, I'll put them in groups of areas relatively close to each other:

Florence Siena Bologna Modena Parma Wonderful art, sculpture, music, food, scenery, wine 

2. Milan Bergamo Comer See Verona Venice Padua Art, scenery, wine, food, amazing churches, travel on lake & canals

3. Rome Sorrento Naples Pompei Art, history, beaches etc etc

4. Cinque Terre Genoa Portofino Pisa Art, scenery, beaches

5. Puglia Drive around, checkout the beautiful beaches and towns like Ostuni Martina Franca Ceglie Messapica Lecce Cisternino Locorotondo 

It's quite a big country so try not to fit in too much on this trip (you'll probably want to go back) If you don't want to drive, take the train, it's really good value and an extensive service, some trains stop in small villages so you might serendipitously step off the beaten track and find a little gem!

Have a great time!

Hello Chantal,

A lot of where you go will be dependent on that you enjoy.

  • If you enjoy antiquities, then Rome and Pompei  are definitely where you want to go.
  • Should you taste are more in line with art, you should definitely consider Florence.  The Accademia Internazionale del Musical and Uffizi Galleryare for you.
  • If sun and shore are you bread and butter, the Amalfi Coast is a good place to start.  You should also consider the Cinque Terre.
  • Maybe you'd like to immerse yourself in the countryside and Italian rural life.  Then SardiniaTuscany and it's hill towns, or Sicily should be considered.

Whatever you decide, I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself.

Happy travels!

I'd definitely hit Rome but also remember Venice, maybe a day or 2 there also. If you have the opportunity hit theItalian Alps, beautiful country at the North end as well.

RomeFlorence and Venice is a perfect 10 day trip and a great introduction if you've never been to Italy.
