Going to be doing a trip with the fam (parents, brother, aunt and uncle) in May in Italy. Basically fly into rome, we will hire a van driver to take us from Rome to Venice and back, visiting a few spots along the way (Florence, Pisa, Tuscany, etc). We need to rent the driver, one in the party is handicapped and it will be easier to just get dropped off and picked up wherever we tour in a city, etc. I think about a week-10days. Its probably going to be at a more rushed paced as I want but any general suggestions? Making a list of places to go, anything worthwhile? So far I've only really looked in Florence. Probably going to look at some fragrance (Santa Maria Novella Pharmacy) and maybe a leather wallet somewhere in the market. Might do an outlet mall if its worth it, but I'm not the one directing the show....so it might be hard. Foodwise, looking at getting some Bistecca al Florentina (sp) in Florence (I googled a few places for this) and the seafood risotto in Venice (saw on the No Reservations episode). Any interesting things on the road or general travel advice? Interesting trinkets I should pickup?
