My wife and I leave for Rome on Thursday and have nothing planned for our two weeks there. Spontaneous sounded good 3 months ago, now we are worried. We plan to use the rail system throughout and have come up with a guideline itinerary. We are young professionals and want to enjoy the history and sites of Rome/Venice and the relaxing/adventure of hiking Mt. Vesuvius in Pompeii and the towns of Cinque Terre.
Does this make sense?
18th: Arrive Rome at 10am
20th: Rome, take overnight train to Venice (leave at 10:30pm)
21st: Venice arrive at 5:30am
23rd: Morning head to Cinque Terre
24th: Cinque Terre hiking
25th: Morning leave to Sienna/Tuscany
26th: Sienna/Tuscany by day, head to Sorrento
27th: Sorrento/Naples and day trip to Pompeii for hiking
28th: Sorrento/Naples (overnight here or head to Rome for last night)
29th: Depart Rome 12:45pm
