4 Days in Rome and 2 in Florence with Teenagers

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Rome in June of 2013 and trying to make sure I am allocating the right amount of time to the right locations. Part of this process is determining what we are going to do in each location.

My kids are pretty balanced but like any teenager they soon tire of museums and churches. Our trip starts in Rome and ends in Paris so I want to make sure they get a balanced view in each place. In other words, I don't want them to dread the Louvre because they are wiped out on museums.

The plan is to arrive on Saturday morning after an overnight flight so I know we will be wiped out and won't want to do any museums that day. (that would be like trying to give a cat a bath) So what would you recommend to do during our time in Rome and Florence. I know the obvious: the colosseum, Vatican, Pantheon, Spanish steps but what else? Is a side trip to Hadrians or Villa d'este worth the trip?
