Buon giorno,

My husband and I are traveling to Rome, Florence, and Venice mid-March.

We want a more "relaxed" trip and don't want to kill ourselves rushing all around trying to see "everything!"

Below please find a rough outline of our travel plans. I would love any restaurant suggestions, feedback, comments on the restaurants proposed or suggestions where restaurants not included! Also, is it warm enough to dine outside now or are people still indoors?

Thank you so much!
