Help- Best Christmas Itinerary? - Rome, Orvieto, Tuscany, Sorrento

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 (2 daughters in their 20's) landing in Rome on Dec. 24th departing Rome Jan. 2nd. We would love advice on planning the best Itinerary factoring in cooler temperatures, desirable areas, what may or may not be open . Presently, we have reservations (that can be changed, flip, flopped, whatever) in Rome @ Hotel Campo Fiori 12/24- 12/29, in Sorrento 12/29 - 1/1 @ Hilton Sorrento Palace (due to hotel points), and Hilton @Rome airport 1/1 (points). We are struggling with the itinerary given these considerations: balancing art, history, quaint villages..would love to get a taste of Tuscany and have wondered about going straight there if we could find a wonderful Christmas Day experience or perhaps best to day trip it from Rome to Orvieto area and perhaps other suggestions? It seems few sights are open on 12/25-26 in Rome, so that is of issue. We've thought maybe of going down to Sorrento sooner then heading back toward Rome so as to be there New Year's Eve (though then little open on New Year's Day). Some may say, choose different dates, but these are what we have given our busy lives. We love art, history, villages, food and wine...maybe someone out there may know of the ideal Christmas Day experience ..& then of course there is the weather to factor in given the time of year. We have a tall order we know, but first family vacation in 5 years and the prospect of it being our last, has us wrestling with multiple thoughts. Any and all advice greatly appreciated!!!!
