    Looks great too! It is super close to Hotel Athena and has parking so similar options. Will keep it in mind for when we go back to Siena ;-). Yeah, we didn't stay in a room with a view at Athena, we weren't at the hotel long but did enjoy the views from the terrace.
    Where to stay in Tuscany? Read this if you will have a car and this if you won't!

    Default 10 day trip biggining in Rome

    Hello, my wife and I are actually doing pretty much the same trip in October! We have 10 days. We arrive in Rome and would like to spend a few days there, as well as Tuscan countryside, Florence and up to Venice.

    Do we have enough time? Would it make sense to do Rome, then Sienna, then Florence and finish the trip in Venice? We are thinking of just renting a car near Sienna and then taking the train for the rest of our travels.

    We haven’t booked any accommodations yet so are flexible.

    Thanks so much for any advice and info!

    Thanks.


    Hey Mack, my wife and I are makin a pretty similar trip. Have you checked out Airbnb? Usually MUCH cheaper and unique experience.

    Default 10 days in Italy

    Buongiorno,

    Once you get here, 10 days will never seem like enough but there is a lot you can do in that time period.

    Plan on 2 - 3 days Rome

    5-6 days in Tuscany (divided into 2 in the city of Florence and 3 in the countryside) I won't even begin to tell you how much there is to see - it would just make your head spin! However, if you look through some of the itineraries at the link, they may help you plan out your time.

    1-2 days in Venice

    Rome in three days, catching a train later in the afternoon on the third day will max your time there and have you seeing most everything. Most hotels will hold your luggage, so you can plan on still doing stuff on the last day. Be sure to book if you want to see the Vatican. There is a fast train tht will have you in Florence super fast - just in time for a bistecca fiorentina

    I would train it to Florence, stay there then pick up a car and move into the countryside for a few days, driving into Siena, Chianti, Val d'Orcia. You can then drop the car in Florence and catch a train to Venise (st. Lucia station)

    Venice will probably be the most expensive part of the vacation, and you could do it with just one night if you wanted to. There is a train that leaves Florence early in the morning and has you in Venice before lunch.

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise
