Help with Italy itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and two daughters (ages 9 and 12) will be traveling to Italy leaving the U.S. on June 15th and flying home on July 4th. Here is our tentative agenda - would love your thoughts and feedback. We would prefer not to rent a car. We are able to stay with a family friend in Bologna our first 4 nights and at a friends apartment in Rome the last week (may include 1-2 day trips from Rome). Have put two days in venice below; an alternative to that would be a day trip to Venice from Bologna and then 2 days in the Cinque Terre. Enjoy sightseeing (though not many museums with our kids) and definitely want some time by the water. Thanks so much for your help!
Day 1 (sunday) arrive Bologna mid afternoon. Will be staying at the home of a family friend. Bologna that evening
Day 2 - (Monday) recover from jet lag; day trip to Ferraro (Castella Estense and Duomo)
Day 3- (Tuesday) Day trip to Ravenna in morning; afternoon at beach in Rimini
Day 4- (Wednesday) Day trip to Parma and Modena; recommended tour for balsamic and Palma and Parmesan? Do u need to do through a company?
Day 5- (Thursday) train to Venice; still needs to find accommodations
Day 6- (Friday) Venice
Day 7- (sat) train to Naples and then sorrento (still need to find accommodations in Sorrento which will be base for day trips)
Day 8- ( Sun) Day trip to positano
Day 9- (mon) Day trip to Capri
Day 10-(Tuesday) Day trip to Pompeii
Day 11- (Wednesday) day trip to Ischia
Day 12- (Thursday) sorrento; train to Rome
Day 13- (Friday) Rome
Day 14- (sat) Rome
Day 15-sun) Day trip to Orvieto
Day 16 (mon) rome
Day 17-(Tuesday) day trip from Rome?
Day 18-(Wednesday) Rome
