Putting an itinerary for 10 days is anything but easy simple coz' there is so much to see & we don't want you to miss out on ANYTHING!! We have put in some of our best experiences here. Feel free to make variations and share with us in comments below :)
To get started, 10 days is a good amount of time to spend in Italy and get a fair sense of what the country holds. A full 10 days in Italy gives you enough time to visit several cities in the country and have some in-depth experiences without feeling too rushed.

Getting Around Italy
Personally, we feel traveling by train is the best way to travel around Italy and see the country. Considering that the country is so beautiful, it is the best way to just sit back and relax enjoying the countryside. It’s convenient, cheaper and saves on a lot of time.
However, there are some places that are definitely worth renting a car! We will get to the details as we proceed through the blog ????

Days 1 & 2: Rome
You can start your trip in Rome. There are two airports in Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino with multiple connections throughout the day (also most affordable). Going around in Italy is pretty easy, just make sure you get hold of a travel pass that can be used on train, tram, metro and buses. You can buy one here.
Since this will be your first day with mostly the first half spent in reaching Rome & your hotel, you can spend it, settling down in the hotel, unpacking and relaxing a little bit. Rome is full of art, history, culture, and amazing food. It is incredible to wander down a street and suddenly come upon an ancient structure or statue!
