We are planning an anniversary trip to Italy this March. I've put together a pretty detailed itinerary, and was hoping to get some feedback. Dates are set. Hotels are booked. Train tickets are purchased.
We will be coming via train from Venice on March 15th (Saturday), arriving at 3pm. Taking taxi to Palazzo Magnani Feroni. Considering just hanging out or possibly going over to Piazza Michelangelo.
March 16th - Accademia, Renaissance walk via Rick Steeves audiotour (Duomo, Baptistery, Via de' Calzaiuoli, Orsanmichele Church, Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, and Ufizzi). Consider going inside of Palazzo Veccio or Ufizzi. May need to reorganize or do tour backwards - Duomo opens at noon on Sundays.
March 17th (Monday)- booked a tour through the hotel to Sienna, San G., Pisa, w/ wine tasting lunch.
March 18th - Bargello, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, and Ufizzi or Palazzo Veccio if we didn't have time on Sunday.
March 19th - Train to Rome at 9am.
Am I missing anything? Is this too much? Anything that you could recommend? Any ideas for lunches or dinners?
We will be taking our day trip on St. Patrick's Day - is there anything we need to know about this holiday in Italy? (Or is it even celebrated like it is here in the US?)
