Remember my daydream to move to Italy and raise olive farmers?

Yeah. About that.

Italy update and advice seeking

We fly into Rome on July 11. The current plan is to rent a car at the airport and drive to stay with our friends in Lucca for 3 nights. Then, we’re going to Venice for 2 nights, staying at a hotel on Lido Island.

Here’s where I can use some help: we then have 2 nights before we have to get to Rome. Any suggestions for towns between either Venice and Lucca or Lucca and Rome? Maybe a vineyard with a B&B? A restaurant that is good enough to detour to visit?

We arrive in Rome on the 18th and fly home on the 20th.

Update: Someone asked via email so to clarify, we’ve already booked hotels in Venice and Rome (here and here) and no longer need info on that. (Yes, we love the Starwood brand, in particular Westin).

The trip to Italy has been booked, upping the possibility significantly that we are actually going to Italy (barring the IC’s job telling him otherwise).

Thanks for the advice all y’all have already given me and please keep it coming. We particularly welcome suggestions of restaurants and towns off the beaten path. We’re renting a car so pretty much anything in Tuscany or near Rome and Venice is possible.
