My wife and I are planning a trip to Italy for April next year. We had thought of doing a tour but can not find a suitable option. Our Plan is to spend 2 nights Venice 3/4 nights in the Florence area were we could do day trips from to Florence, Cique Terre, and a Tuscan Winery tour 1 night somewhere between Florence & Rome (any recommendations?) and 3/4 nights in Rome.
We have travelled on our own before in other countries.
My questions are
Are trains the best option for transport?
Were is a good base to stay around the greater Florence area?
Any tips on the best way to do this on our own?
Any tour recommendations?
Appreciate any help you can give us, have always found Trip advisor a great source of information when planning previous trips/
