Help with Summer 2015 Trip to Italy

Jump to last reply

I am planning my 2015 summer trip for my family - husband and two children age 11 and 13 and would love some help! I have been reading these forums and doing lots of research on line but am still having a hard time figuring out our best plan.

We would like to visit the Amalfi Coast and possible Capri plus maybe Tuscany. We will have about 12 days- this is flexible.

My children are good travelers- we went to Paris and Provence 2 years ago and they LOVED Provence! So I thought it would be fun to see Tuscany. We enjoy taking in the scenery, eating good food, strolling around town, relaxing and getting the feel for the area.
I am thinking our trip would look like this:
4nights Positano
2 nights Capri
4nights Tuscany

Questions: We don't want to spend our time in Rome on this trip. Can we fly into Rome and head directly to Amalfi? (train to Naples and then hire a car to our hotel??)

I think we would like to stay in Positano- What are the best hotels/hotel locations?
What are the best day trips / activities with children?? Should we try to go to Pompeii ?

Should we add a few nights in Capri?
Can we fit in a few nights in Tuscany?? Not sure where we should base ourselves?
A place with a nice pool and beautiful scenery, near a charming town??

Anyone who has taken a similar trip and could give me tips...What did your children enjoy the most? I would greatly appreciate!! (I know I have asked a lot of questions)? thank you so much!
