Italy in 11 days

My husband and I will be traveling to Italy for the first time. We booked 3 nights in Venice, 4 nights in Florence and 4 nights in Rome. I wanted to do a day/overnight trip to the Cinque Terre from Florence as well as a trip to the Amalfi Coast (possibly Capri) one of the days from Rome. Any tips on travel or things get the most out of our limited day trips to CT and AC?

when are you going? IMO, you don't have time for a day trip to the AC.

I endorse the above opinion.

In Italy, we have found that less may be more, much more.

You could stay home and rush about to see many interesting things, Oregon is lovely, but an Italy experience should provide a little knowledge of the culture and the people and the way of life. (IMHO). You won't get those by rushing about too much. No part of Oregon is Italian no, not even the Willamette Valley.

Amalfi Coast is just not doable in a day trip - as noted by others above; it would be about 8 hours total traveling time just getting there and back.

It needs at the bare minimum one overnight.
