5 days in Tuscany vs Amalfi coast

Jump to last reply

There is no firm right answer here I'm sure, but I am very interested in the wisdom of the crowd regarding preferences.

Our family, including 2 kids (11 and 13), are planning a trip to Italy and our original plan was ....

Rome ... Amalfi Coast/Capri ... Venice ... Florence ... then back to Rome for the flight out (no rental car) (15 full days total)

Due to what I'm reading about the crowds and environment around Amalfi, we have opened up consideration options. Thus we are thinking of replacing the Amalfi Coast/Capri portion with 4-5 days in Tuscany (not including Florence). The towns of Tuscany look amazing. I'm thinking we'd rent a car for the Tuscany portion of the trip. We (adults) have been to Florence before and it might be our favorite place on earth, so we are looking forward to introducing our kids to it. But we have not been to the surrounding area. 8-9 days total between Tuscany and Florence is a fair bit ... wondering if sharing some of the time with Amalfi makes better sense.

So, the main question: What is your recommendation? Amalfi or Tuscany? (Feel free to share other ideas too).

Thank you for your opinions and thoughts!
