I,m planning my trip to Rome for at least 2 weeks, therefore would like to see some other places as well in Italy. I would need info on any tour company that would speak german and with good prices as well. Thank you!!!!

I once visited Rome for one week, and I can't remeber walking so much in such a short time! *smile* But Rome is so great, and there are pretty much things worth visiting! So I would think about staying there the 2 weeks! Some places are full of tourists, for instance the top auf the St. Pauls Cathedral, from where you have a great view on the City!
If you use the Underground watch over your bag! Very useful to carry everything thats important close to your body! Just a tip!
Have a nice trip! :)

I would strongly suggest Florence and Tuscany that is a must see :)

I truly recommend the Isle of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. You can find lots of tours for those areas on-line. The one we used in Oct. 04 was called mara tours or mara travel and had tours in German--their website is:

Here is another one that came up in a google search that you can check out:

I spent 5 days in Rome back in 2002, I definitly recommend it too... I would suggest to spend a week in the capital, then visit Firenze/Siena/Pisa the next week ... (I second Spalla: Tuscany is a 'must see'!)

Viel Vergnügen! ;)

I've been in Rome for a week and a couple of times in Italy. I agree that Rome & Florence are must sees, all of Tuscany is beautiful. I think I like the south even more than Tuscany, it's also very different in landscape and culture. Try driving around the Amalfi coast (around Sorrento etc.) - fantastic views! Pompeii (ruins of the ancient roman city) is also fantastic, especially if you know a bit about roman mythology & culture.

If all you've got is two weeks, it's gonna be very busy if you want to see both the south of Italy and Tuscany! Better make a choice and have more relaxed holiday :) Just remember Italy is very busy in summer, and you might want to take things slowly because of the heat.

Venice is also very nice, and I think not to far from Florence to visit. About 3 hours drive I guess?

Have a nice trip!

I would agree with the general view that you could choose any one of a number of areas to see this time and then leave others to your next Italian holiday. We loved Sorrento, there is so much in that region (Pompeii, Capri, Amalfi coast) and our Venice holiday was great too because by staying at Punta Sabbioni we were able to choose between beach and sights each day.
Have a great holiday whatever you do.

you don't have to travel that far you know .
take the train for an overnight or day- trip to the beautifull city of orvieto with the upper-historic-town cathedral and the nice shops and good places to drink the fresh white orvieto wine and eat cheese and good pasta-preparations .
or take a bus to the beach of ostia for a day or an overnight stay .
train to the coast of salerno takes a little longer so not interesting for a 1 or 2 days trip .
greetings from belgium :)
