Florence itinerary with teens- reasonable?

Jump to last reply

Here's our Florence 5 night itinerary (visiting July with 3 teens- need to be careful about museum overload- even with my DH). Your comments are highly appreciated! Also, we'd like to eat out at least once at a decent place in Florence. Any recommendations for a nice place that won't break our budget?:

Florence 5 night itinerary:

First night: Get settled in, walk around. Explore Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, San Lorenzo Market. Go to Basilica di San Miniato al Monte for view of the city.

Second night: Early morning reservations for Uffizi (we decided to leave kids at hotel), Go inside the Duomo, climb it, Boboli Gardens. Walk to Piazzale Michelangelo for view of Florence. Basilica of Santa Croce.

Third night: Day trip to Cinque Terre (50/50 chance of going; will decide when we get there).

Fourth night: Day trip to Lucca then Pisa (or should we start with Pisa then Lucca)? We’ve decided to climb the tower so it would probably stress me out to be in Lucca first. I’d rather do Pisa first. Thoughts? I need to make reservations very soon.

Fifth night: Day trip to Siena by bus. This will be on a Sunday- will that be a problem? Don’t have major plans other than walking around to explore the city and then coming back to Florence. The next day will be a long one—train to Naples then Pompeii on our way later to Sorrento. Hmm, wondering if we should skip Siena for something closer? Thoughts?
