My husband and I are planning a trip to Italy for May of this year. We want to see small town, historic sites and the country side probably mostly in Tuscany and Umbria with trips to Venice, Florence and regions north. We will probably fly into Milan but don't want to spend much time there. Not sure if we will go to Rome because of the number of tourists there and the amount of time but haven't ruled it out. We are thinking we'll travel by train part of the time and will rent a car for part of it. Not sure yet how many days we'll have but probably 12 - 15 days. We are in our sixties so we want to travel at a leisurely pace and enjoy the culture and the people and see some of the best historic sites and architecture. We'd love to hear your travel experiences good and bad to help us plan our trip.
