Hi all, I need a suggestion.

My wife and myself are heading for a trip to Italy during Sept-2009. We are forced to keep it short, so we'd be having two days for Florence and Tuscany.

Here is our itinerary:

.....
Day 3: Venice
Day 4: Early morning train from Venice to Florence, reach Florence by 10 a.m. or so, check in at the hotel, spend the whole day in Florence
Day 5: Pisa and Tuscany. We have to reach Rome by late evening.
Day 6: Morning return flight to US

Now, regarding day 5, how do you suggest to make it the best? We will go to see the tower ofcourse, and then? Should we keep our luggage in Florence, roam about and be back by afternoon? Or we should check in somewhere else (Pisa etc), spend the whole day sightseeing and head for Rome in the evening?

We are equally interested in history and nature, so feel free to suggest something.

Thanks
Joydeep

On day 5, how are you getting around? It seems REALLY tight to me.

Have you been to Rome before? I would swap Pisa and Tuscany out for Rome if I were you. Rome is fantastic.

We have kept the first two days for Rome. I know it looks nastily short for almost all the cities but I don't have an option.

How long does it take to see the Vatican? I heard that the waiting queues are really long there!!

Yeah, you want at least 3 hours for the Vatican... at LEAST it's huge. When I went, we got this special pass that let you cut in line, I'm not sure what it was called, but it was back in 2001.
