11 Nights in Italy with 2 kids - Looking for Suggestions

Jump to last reply

Our tickets are booked for our Italy vacation in July. Yay! We fly into Rome and out of Bologna 12 days later (cheapest airfare itinerary). We are a family of 4. Kids are 9 and 12 years old. We’ve settled on an itinerary that includes 3 nights in Rome, 4 in Sorrento, 3 in Tuscany and last night in Bologna before our flight back. We figured it would give us a taste of city, seaside and country.

We’re hoping that some of you Italy experts could provide some suggestions for activities that are kid friendly. In general, when we travel with the kids we like to have a set activity in the morning and let the kids decide the afternoon with suggestions from us. Here’s our full itinerary.

Day 1: Arrive Rome 1pm, staying in Hotel Adriano near Piazza Navona, explore Pantheon or other sites nearby if we’re not too tired.
Day 2: Colosseum in the morning. Afternoon?
Day 3: Vatican in the morning. Afternoon?
Day 4: Take fast train to Naples in the morning, then transfer to Pompeii. Explore Pompeii then continue to Sorrento. Is this crazy? Staying at Hotel Antiche Mura
Day 5: Day in Sorrento
Day 6: Ferry to Capri, maybe Blue Grotto
Day 7: Amalfi Coast. Which town would be the most interesting stop?
Day 8: Long travel day… Get to Naples, fast train Naples to Florence. Spend a few hours in Florence (I know this isn’t ideal, but looking for easy activity suggestions), then pick up rental car and drive to Vicchio where we’ll meet my sister coming from Germany. Staying at Villa Campestri.
Day 9: Tuscany – ideas for nice places to explore within 1.5 hrs?
Day 10: Tuscany – ideas for nice places to explore within 1.5 hrs?
Day 11: Drive to Bologna. Is there anything fun to do for a day in Bologna?
Day 12: Fly home

I hope we’re not trying to cram too much. If you’ve read through this LONG post, thank you!
