Isabella: You are right on track, the Island of Ischia is as beuatiful as it is affordable. It is a great way to see the Amalfi Coast which should not be missed under any circimastances...Good Luck

Can really recommend a hostel in Italy.....

Brilliant hostel, great hosts, lovely countryside for walking / cycling / hire a car. Great breakfasts and real coffee. We were there late June.....brilliant.

Check out my blog entries on Sorrento and Capri. Capri is a day trip. So, I think, is Naples. I didn't find Sorrento touristy.
Venice is well worth three days if you like art and architecture. Umbria is hard to get around. Lots of train changing. Is that how you are travelling.

North to south does seem the best but if you're not making too many reservations ahead of time, I would play it by ear.

Two days is plenty in Lucca. We were there just one a day, which sufficed for us.

Add some time to Florence. It's fabulous.

Three to four days in Cinque Terra might be excessive. We just spent a day driving through the towns. The roads can be trecherous; very rough terrain and roads very, very narrow at times.

My daughter says Avignon & St. Michel (northwest of Paris) are her favorite places in Europe. (She's been there 5 times). We only spent part of a day in Avignon and wish we would have had longer. St. Michel is the tiny island on the north coast with the spired cathedral jutting out of the ocean. Wonderful!

If you spend a few days in Lucca it will give you a chance to see not only a very nice city but, some of the beautiful scenery up the garfagnana valley which is only an hour or so away and can be done easily in day trips by train. Well worth the visit if your after a real Tuscan experience.

Don't forget to visit Cortona during the Cortona film festival -snip-
About Perugia, I really suggest apartment in the acquedotto area -snip-
