My family (2 adults, 4 teenagers) arrives in the AM in Rome on a Sunday and we are hoping to see Rome and possibly Florence or the Amafli Coast and Capri. I had intended to stay in an apartment in Rome for the whole time and do side-trips. Recently I was advised that most places to visit in Rome are closed on Sunday and Monday, so that we should probably try to start elsewhere and then just stay in Rome for the rest of the trip. Is this good advice? Any recommendations on an itinerary where we would not need to rent a car?
