I am trying to find an Italy resort. Any suggestions? I am not sure where to start. I know I want by the water. Is 1 week enough or should I look for 2 weeks? Same resort or different if we stay 2 weeks. I want to be free to eat wherever. TIA
I would suggest different resorts in different parts of the country, and two weeks rather than one. If you have never been to Italy, I would suggest making at least a couple of days for Rome, and I would also add Venice and Florence.
I would suggest one timeshare week be in Venice, if you can get a week there, but that is a really tough exchange. If you want to go to the beach while in the old city, simply take vaporetto (water bus) 1 or 2 to Lido, which is Venice's stretch of Adriatic Sea beach.
Exploring Tuscany is also great, but that is another rather tough exchange, and most of the resorts are inland.
Unless you've been to italy in the past I'd not recommend you stay in timeshares which tend to be out of the cities and often quite remote. There's so much to see I suggest you make it a 'hotel' trip...stay at least 3 nights in Venice, Florence, Rome and Sorrento. I'd recommend the Hilton Palace in Sorrento and SPG hotels everywhere else...just make sure they are right smack in the middle of the cities, not the outskirts. Pack light, travel on great trains. I think its hard to see Rome in 3 nights, but it can be done. It won't be a cheap trip this way but the memories will be priceless.
