4 night Florence/5 nights Venice or the other other way around?

Jump to last reply

Travelling this August with the family to Italy - we have planned out most of the trip but just need to finalise the last part. We have the choice of 4 nights in Florence and 5 nights in Venice or we could do it the other way (5 night Florence/4 nights Venice). What do you think?

Our children are 16, 14, 13, 13 and 7 and we would have already visited Rome and Naples. We want to limit it to just Florence and Venice as we are using apartments as our accommodation and they usually want a 3 night commitment.

Still at early stages to what we will exactly be planning to see/visit in these places but it will include in Florence exploring the centre and its art galleries (although we do need to consider the 7 year old's tolerance levels) plus a trip to Siena and maybe Pisa. With Venice it will be exploring the city with no side trips yet planed although Verona has an appeal. We are also keen to explore a sea kayaking trip in Venice. We will be using public transport.

Anyway we are flexible - just not sure which place we should consider longer at?

Our departure airport is Milan - a late flight which we will travel to on the day from Venice!

Thank you.
