8 days in Italy - Umbria/Toscana, or Amalfi/Napoli?

Jump to last reply

I would appreciate some input on an 8 day trip to Italy.

Initially we were planning to go to Perugia, rent a cheap room for the entire duration (easy because I already had a certain B&B in my mind) and explore the southern Toscana and Umbria from there (We did visit Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto among many other things in a crazy tour last year). So we would try to see smaller towns in the area - Urbino (yeah, i know, it's not in Umbria), Gubbio, Cortona, Montepulciano, Norcia, Spello, Spoleto in one day trips.

Then, I realized that this is the 5th time we'll be in Italy and we haven't seen Pompei and Amalfi coast, so I started thinking more about that area.

I do plan to rent a car in Rome/FCO (and skip the city completely, since we spent more than a week there several years ago). I am nervous about driving through Napoli, so we may skip it completely or try to find a place to leave the car and use public transportation.
We do have a 2.5 year old and we definitely do not want to repeat the big mistake we did last year with 8 different lodging locations in 16 days. He is big enough to interact with the environment and have some understanding of what is happening to him, so I would like to include some fun activities for him too.

This time we'll probably skip or greatly limit museums, given that the little one is not old enough to taste art galleries and not young enough anymore to not care that much (or protest for that matter).

I am on the verge on which area to go to and obviously doing both is out of the question.

I appreciate any input.
