Highlights of Italy in November with kids

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling through Europe this fall with 2 kids, 8 and 10. The last portion of our trip will be in Italy. As of now, our last 4 nights are confirmed in Rome and the 7 nights before that in Abruzzo, near Sulmona. (I am looking forward to some down time there to enjoy the culture without rushing from 1 attraction to the next!). To start off our trip, I had been planning to spend 3 or 4 nights in Venice then 1 week in Florence before heading to Abruzzo; however, I am now wondering whether a week in Florence is too much and whether there are other places I should plan to spend time. Perhaps 3 nights Venice, 5 nights Florence, 3 nights Sorrento/Naples, then Abruzzo and Rome? I realize adding Sorrento in that order would cause some backtracking but I have confirmed our stays in Abruzzo and Rome so no changes there, plus we fly out of Rome so I need to end there anyway. Since I'm traveling with the kids, the idea was to try to stay put for a week or so in between other excursions of 3 or fewer nights. This itinerary would be more bouncing around than I had planned but maybe worthwhile? Any other suggestions?? FYI, the timeframe for this portion of our trip is late November.
