Italian Riviera or Lake Como?

Jump to last reply

I will be taking my first trip to Italy in July with my husband and two daughters, ages 6 and 9. We are flying into Rome and spending four nights there. We then have three nights to explore somewhere else and for the final three nights will be in Venice before flying home. We are trying to decide what to do for the three nights between Rome and Venice. A lot of traditional itineraries would go to Florence, but we would rather save that for when the kids are older as they can only handle looking at a limited amount of buildings and artwork. We all like to be outside and near the water so were deliberating between going to the Portofino area (possibly Santa Margherita Ligure) or Lake Como. We are having a hard time deciding between the two so wondered if anyone had any advice on what would be better with the kids, also taking into account ease of train schedules, etc. Thank you!
