My partner and I are going to Italy for 10 nights, 8 days.

We are going to start in Rome and we are going to Florence and then to the Dolomites and for last to Como.

We are afraid it will be too tiring. Although my partner dream with the Dolomites beauty.

So we already have:

3 nights Rome
2 days Rome, 1 between Rome and Florence
1 night Florence
1 day between Florence and Dolomites
3 nights Dolomites
2 days Dolomites
1 day between Dolomites and Como
2 nights Como
1 day Como

What do you think is the best way to make this work? Should we spend more days in Como and less in the Dolomites?

Thank you a lot!

I think you will regret not having more than a night in Florence - I have never been, but for any city that full of sights, an overnight stop is usually so frustrating that it can seem worse than not going at all!

In my opinion you are trying to fit in one place too many. I would either drop Florence and go straight to the Dolomites from Rome (use the extra day either in Rome or Como), or drop either the Dolomites or Como to give yourself long enough to see something of Florence.

Skip Florence. one afternoon and evening is nothing for this city. Focus on Rome plus the Dolomites and Como, and nothing more than that. Four full days (5 nights) Rome, one travel day North, 3 days (3 or 4 nights) Dolomites, 1 day (1 or 2 nights) Como. That would sound like a rewarding trip at not too hectic pace to me.
