I’m graduating from LSU soon, and I’d really like to travel a bit before I start work. I’ve never been to Europe, but I’ve always been fascinated with Italy. I’d really appreciate any advice or recommendations that could help me create a more solid itinerary. I’m not into huge tourist attractions, and I don’t really care for the all the hustle and bustle that comes along with big cities, but obviously places like Rome and Venice still made my list.I’ve done some research, and here’s what I’m thinking so far. The trip would last right around 25 days, beginning in late May.
Rome – Siena/San Gimignano – Padua/Venice – Lake Como (maybe Lecco)
Lucerne – Interlaken – and possibly Bern
I want it to be a relatively relaxed trip, and I want to take the time to really appreciate the sights and the culture. I’ll be traveling alone. Any additions or subtractions I should make, or any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
