This will be our first trip to Italy. We have booked our flight into Venice and out of Florence at the beginnning of October. We will have 7 full days(8nights) to explore the 2 cities and some of the surrounding area. We are both 40 and reasonably fit people. We are not huge museum people. Our style is more exploring new towns and winding streets, beautiful churches, prominent monuments and anything that we can’t see in the U.S.
My initial plan is 3 nights(2 full days)in Venice and then train to Florence for the next 5 nights. While in Florence, I would like to explore Lucca, Sienna and maybe PIsa on 2 of the days in Florence by either train or possibly a tour group. Seem reasonable?
