Italy Summer 2015

Jump to last reply

I am planning my first Italy trip with my husband and 22 year old twins. It will be the first trip to Europe for the 22 year olds. We are very outdoorsy and I know that I would like to see sites in Rome but more than one day of art is too much. I would like to spend some time in Tuscany and am thinking about a Bike tour if anyone can recommend one. Also would like to take the kids to Munich, Switzerland, Austria (probably not all but at least one). I think they would love the beer gardens in Munich and I would really like for them to see the Swiss Alps but this may be accomplished via a train ride. Venice would be a nice stop as well but not for long. I know I do not want to spend the entire time in cities (just not my thing). Would love to do a wine tour but I think that can be accomplished on the bike tour. I do not want to cram too much into the trip so no 2 days in all locations and 6 locations kind of itinerary! Does anyone have a suggestion on route?

Oh and BTW we are flying in and out of Rome. Although I know this is not optimal, the flights are free so that makes that part non negotiable. We could however take a plane directly North from Rome when we arrive or take trains North and then fly back to Rome to depart. We actually have 13 nights arriving lunch time on a Sunday and departing dinner time on a Saturday (not sure if this will play into the plane ride in either direction).

Thanks for suggestions. This is a college graduation trip/gift for the kids (young adults).
