12 nights Italy in july
My wife and I already slowly making plans for our next summer trip. This time it would be a first trip in Italy. We only have 12 nights for that trip since we are letting the grandparents taking care of our childs and that we dont want to be away from them for more than 2 weeks.
We are not set on our date but we have 6 weeks in vacation in summer. Our initial plan is something like this
july 8- july 21
arrival in Rome from Montreal, stay 5 nights
Rome-Florence by train and 4 nights in Florence
Florence-venice by train and 4 nights in Venice
Flight from Venice to Montreal (flights are between 12:00 and 13:15 depending the day).
1) Should we allows more/less time in some of those places ?
2) should we skip Florence and rent a car between Rome and venice and enjoy contryside (we really love cities and more relax places so anything can fit the bill !)
3) we have found a cruise ship schedule for Venice ( http://crew-center.com/venice-cruise-ship-schedule-2018 )...so we can chose days that gets less boat turist, is it reliable ?
