Italian itinerary

Jump to last reply

Okay, wanted to run our itinerary by the forum and see if anyone has suggestions on anything I'm missing for a family of four's first visit to Italy. We have a 13-year-old boy, 16-year-old girl as well as my husband and I, and two weeks to pack it all in.

Day 1--Travel day, arrive in Rome around 9:40. Get to hotel hopefully by noon, then do hop -on, hop-off bus tour of Rome (thinking Roma Pass??) and then possibly the Pantheon before dinner and an early night.

Day 2--9 a.m. tour of Galleria Borghesse (hoping for a tour with a docent??), followed by some time in the gardens. Then the Carpuchian crypt (spelling?? Where the bones of the brothers are used). Lunch and rest time. Around 4 do the Forum and the Collesuim, followed by a night walking tour of the fountains and piazzas.

Day 3--7:30 a.m. early tour of Sistine Chapel, then rest of the morning (as long as the kids can take it) in the Vatican museums Would like to tour St. Peters and participate in Mass there (children and husband are Catholic), but don't have much information about that.

Considering tour of the Vatican gardens--worth it?

Afternoon off and shopping.

Day 4--Travel by train to Umbria. Rent a car in Perugia. There through Day 11 in country house with pool, near Todi. Planning day trips to explore the following:
Perugia
Oviento
Torgiano
Assisi
Football game (soccer) or even baseball??
Dance/festival or some type of community celebration
Other????

Day 11--train to Florence. Try to arrive for English language Mass at Duomo at 5. Explore. Bed

Day 12--Uffizi, Duomo tour. Wandering.

Day 13--Shopping in Florence, see David. Other??? Take train to Rome in afternoon for final dinner with friends, and then nighttime last look around.

Day 14--head home.

We really just decided to add Florence to the trip, so could use advice there. Otherwise, is this reasonable? Too much?? Missing anything big or perfect for kids??

Thanks!
