Answer on Italians I need your help on what to do in Italy?

Plan at least five days in Florence. You will be able to visit Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio, its Duomo (cathedral), the Baptistry (its exterior made of green and white marble are really famous) and the Ponte Vecchio (old bridge). Florence isn't a huge city, you're have gonna a great time and a good idea of how the city really is. You won't be able to have a full visit of Uffizi in Florence but you can choose certain rooms: e.g. Leonardo or Michelangelo. Keep in mind Uffizi timetable Tuesday-Sunday, 8:15 am - 6:50 pm. If you're looking for a good hotel in Florence fill the form with city name (Florence) I went to the third hotel on the left. Very nice indeed.

For Rome you're gonna need at least three days. While in Rome don't miss Colosseum (Colosseo), Roman Forum (Foro Romano), Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi), Vatican City, Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna) and Piazza Navona. I can suggest this page dedicated to Rome hotels in particular… I stayed at the fourth hotel on the left. It was a clean, well located and nicely staffed hotel. Five minutes on foot from the Coliseum and Trevi Fountain. Not over-priced.

You're gonna need at leat four days in Venice. Top sightseeings spots in Venice are the Grand Canal, Piazza San Marco, the Guggenheim museum, Rialto Bridge. Visit the main attractions and just loose yourself among the people and campi of Venice. Don't forget to use the waterbus system. To book a good and cheap hotel in Venice, fill the form with city name (Venice). I stayed in the first hotel on the right: nice and clean place. But feel free to choose the hotel that best fits your needs. Last but not least: keep in mind the most crucial aspect of planning the perfect holiday in Italy is advance planning. If you need more information, just ask.
