Italy Itinerary help - leaving in <2 weeks

Jump to last reply

We were headed to Israel in two weeks but in light of the civil unrest we have changed
our plans and are going to Italy instead. We are traveling with four kids (13,11,8,6). We fly into Venice ( 2nights) and out of Rome (3 nights). I would love help in planning our itinerary for the time between those two cities. We would have liked to visit Cinque Terre or the Amalfi Coast but realize this may be bad idea because of how crowded those places will be. We would like to try to fit in some hiking in the Dolmites. Two other things we want to do are spend 1 day in Florence to visit the Uffizi Gallery and 1 day in Pompei.
Could you help me how to work this out? We don't plan on renting a car because we keep hearing how terrible the traffic will be August. Can I do this all by train? Where should we base ourselves for the Dolmites and Pompei portions of our trip? Is this all even doable? Please advise!

Day 1: arrive 11am Venice; sleep Venice
Day 2: Explore Venice; sleep Venice
Day 3: train to Dolmite area? , sleep in Bolzano or Castelrotto?
Day 4: Hike Dolomites, sleep in Bolzano or Castelrotto
Day 5: Domites area train to Florence; sleep in Florence
Day 6:Uffizi Gallery, train to Sorrento or somewhere near Pompei
Day 7:train to (don't know what to do this day); sleep Ravello or Sorrento? want to visit Pompei early next day.
Day 8: Visit Pompei; sleep in Rome
Day 9: Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain; sleep Rome
Day 10: Vatican City; sleep Rome
Day 11: Leave Rome @6:10pm

Thank you for your help.
