Italy - Taking my parents as a gift

Jump to last reply

Graduating my masters program and want to try to pay my parents back for everything they've done for me for the past 29 years by taking them to Italy. I'll be taking them in about a year, thinking October 2015, with my girlfriend as well. We all get along really well. My parents are about 55 and we're 29. Thinking of going for about two weeks but not sure what itinerary to take across Italy and/or Italy/Croatia for two weeks. They don't have much money and have always wanted to got to Italy and I really want to make this the best trip for them. My gf and I have traveled quite extensively across the world. Just trying to give you all of the details I can. I have been to Hvar/Split Croatia and LOVED Hvar but my parents really haven't been outside the U.S. and really dream of Italy. Any Italian itineraries you can recommend for two weeks just after/before tourist season (May or October 2015) would be extremely helpful. I see airfares are about $1,500 per person which is a lot but I'm ready to do it for the four of us anyway. Thanks in advance for any input!
