Hello I am planning a trip to Italy and I am limited on time. So i was hoping to get some tips for some must see places while on a budget.

For sure I plan to See Rome and Venice.

My other places of interest are Florence, Sorrento and/or Pompeii

the first five days are in Rome and Venice. i will have to take the train to Venice from Rome.

From Venice I was thinking about taking the train down to Florence for the day and then the next day to Sorrento or Pompeii. however to not rush through everything I was thinking about skipping Florence and riding straight to Sorrento or Pompeii.

I plan on bringing my mother along for our first mother daughter trip ever. Our budget is limited so anything free or affordable would be great for us. We are from Cali so really anything we do out there will be a great experience.
