First trip to Italy-2 weeks with a 9 year old

Jump to last reply

My little family (husband 41, me 34, daughter 9) is in the process of planning our first trip to Italy this summer. Actually it is our first trip to Europe. We are flying into Rome on a Saturday and will stay 4 nights in Rome. We were then planning on renting a car on the way out of Rome and we have booked a villa in Northern Tuscany (Pietrasanta) for 10 nights. We will then drive back to Rome, return the car spend one more night in Rome before flying home.
Other than that.....we need help! I have been researching, and there is just SO much to do. I dont want to over-book us, but I do want to take advantage of the time we have there. Our daughter is a fantastic traveler. She will do okay with museums as long as there is some fun time in there as well.
While in Rome I want to spend one day at the Vatican. Of course I would like to see the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and any other suggestions you may have???
Then on to Tuscany.....since we will have a car we were thinking of taking day trips from our villa. Where would be some good places to go? Florence is an hour and a half drive we were thinking of going there to spend a day. Pisa and Cinque Terre are both about a half hour away.
I would like some help from people who have traveled with kids and/or spent time in North Tuscany.
Thank you in advance for your help!!
