Not to short at all.

How are you getting around?

I usually rent cars wherever i go, is it a hassle in any of of these places?

IME's it wasnt worth it.  But maybe others thought  it was.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

I walked between sights/attractions/hotel in all of those cities (Rome, Florence and Venice). Just make sure your hotel is centrally located...

If you have a car it's a 3 hour drive. So you'd probably want to stay the night.

How's the drive itself?

I did it from Florence. From Venice you should drive along the Alps, but not sure if you see them.

For the record I drove in about 15 different countries and found Italy to be the hardest. Could just be my experiences...

Italian drivers are by far the most aggressive I've ever seen

Especially in southern Italy

Ok- trying to plan this trip- for a couple in their 30's - leaving the kids at home.

So far I think I've decided on a flight arriving in Vienna at 2pm Sunday.
Sunday- head around Vienna a bit
Monday- day trip somewhere scenic (need ideas for that)
Tuesday- Hang around Vienna
Wed AM- fly hour flight to Venice- land at around 10/11 am
Thurs evening back to TLV


          Too much? Should I skip out Vienna for somewhere else?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Prague is maybe a better idea- especially considering that there are direct flights from there to TLV(as opposed to Venice )

 My bad. I  meant should I skip the Vienna.  They don't mind the stopover on the way back to TLV. And I just though Venice is somewhere you can enjoy even if you're only there a short time and somewhere they wouldn't go back to so quickly with a bunch of little kids. Plus they've never really been anywhere and probably won't get on another trip any time soon.

They can make a day trip to the alpes from Vienna (skiing maybe), I think that it's about an hour drive.

Not into skiing. But they would like to see some beautiful parts of the alps.
