Italy - Itinerary Review - Family of 6 with Teens

Jump to last reply

I am looking for some advice on my proposed itinerary for a family of six - myself, my husband and our four teenagers (3) 16 year olds and a 14 year old.

My husband and I have been to Italy once before and hit the major cities plus CT. This trip to Italy has a few main objectives: quality family time, exposing the kids to a new country/key sights and to give ourselves an opportunity to enjoy life in Italy by staying at lodgings and doing activities where we can engage with local people.

In our past travels my kids have enjoyed historic sights more than too much art, they love all food, markets, active adventures and enjoy guided tours when the guide is really good.

My thoughts for our trip - Summer 2013.
6/18 - Arrive Milan - train to Verona for overnight/jet lag recovery
6/19 - Venice
6/20 - Venice
6/21 - Venice
6/22-29 - Villa in Tuscany - within walking distance of a village/side trips to Florence, Siena, cooking class and other small villages
6/29-7/6 - Villa in Sorrento - trips to Pompeii, Naples, Capri, Coastal towns/islands
7/6-7/9 - Rome
7/9 - Fly home

- Is a week in Sorrento going to be too long? The villas I have found all require a one week stay.

- I think the kids might also like the CT area, but I run out of time by staying a week in both Tuscany and Sorrento. Only option would be to stay at a hotel in Sorrento for fewer days and add a few days in CT area.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
