Italy 2014- just beginning

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip 2nd week in June with husband, and 2 sons, 16 and 18 for 10 days. Must do is Rome and Vatican city (we are Catholic) and maybe Tuscany. Not interested in Venice, considering Florence. We would enjoy the countyside...coast or hills, not sure where to go. How crowded will Italy be? Best advice to avoid crowds. Not worried about temp...from Texas. Interested in staying in convents to cut costs in Rome: pros and cons? how early do I need to book lodging?
Favorite guidebooks? Kids are great travelers and it will be there first trip to Europe. We enjoy walking tours, hiking and eating. My boys will try anything. We are not much into nightlife. My sons do enjoy museums/history but not interested in art but interested in Religious art. We enjoy going to daily Mass to see Churches instead of walking thru them: must see Churches? Thanks
