Going to Italy at the end of July into the beginning of August with my wife and staying in Venice for 2 days, Florence for 4, Rome for 4, Amalfi Coast for 4. Are those days allocated well? Should we be spending more days in one location over another? Are there certain sights/things we should absolutely not miss while there? I've been to Rome many years ago for 3 days but I may have missed things during that trip. Thank you.

    We did almost exactly this four years ago, but 5 days in each location. Sounds just right. over 6 years ago

    Adding to my previous comment: If you want a good non-crowded tour, check out the company Context (google it). They take small groups of 6-8 people led by local experts. My wife and I had a great tour of the Roman Forum led by a professional archeologist, and tours of both the Vatican Museum and the Uffizi in Florence, both led by art historians. Don't miss the statue of Michaelangelo's David for its amazing lifelike quality. We're going again in September and will probably repeat all of these. Capri is touristy but worth seeing. Try to get to the town of Amalfi when you're in the south. over 6 years ago

    I might add, the year after our tour of the Roman Forum, we took the same Context tour, this time with a our led by an art historian grad student from the U.S., and heard about the Forum from a completely different point of view. over 6 years ago

    You're spending more time travelling than seeing cities ... Hope you have stamina!
