Home base stay in Italy for vacation

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip next year to Italy and starting my research. I am trying to keep the cost down as much as possible since the flight will be the most expensive thing and I want to get the most of this since this may be the only time we ever go. So I was thinking of renting a villa somwhere in the middle of where we want to go and then take the train.

I know we definitely want to go to Florence and Rome, possibly Pisa and Naples. It will have to be next summer, most likely around July and possibly be for a total of 10 days which includes the flight there and back. There will be 4 of us including a 19 and 17 year old teenager. I had also considered inviting my mother and sister and her family to make this into a family event (once in a lifetime) which is why I was considering a villa.

Does anyone have some suggestions? I know renting a car is not a great idea, so our travel may be limited to public transportation and our own steam. So an ideal place to stay during the nights would be ideal if they had trains to the cities we would like to see.

Thanks
