Jump to last reply

After much research and sleepless nights, I have taken all the feedback I have been given and noted on others posts so here goes... (there has to be a side trip to Sicily to go to husbands faimlies Island of Stromboli which is awkward but needs to be done. Youll see where)
Family of four, we have two teens aged 19 & 17. Total of 4.5 weeks.
Leave Australia 13th Sept travel to Rome 5 nights - stay Governo Vecchio apartment, pick up car from Peugeot through the leasing program
Sorrento 5 nights - Stay Best Western two rooms - Day trips to Capri, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii etc
Leave car at Naples airport (this is the tricky part) and fly to Catania, stay in Taormina stay 3 nights - do day trip by ferry from Messina to Stromboli and have short visit here. (Next time we will do his area in detail but not now)
Back to Naples pick up car and go straight to Greve 4 nights - stay at Old Pasta Making Factory in apartment- explore Siena, Florence and surrounds
To Levanto - accomodation not yet finaised - stay 3 nights explore CT area
Off to Venice - 3 nights - Ca' San Sebastiano apartment after 2 nights kids fly home!! YAY :)
Husband and I wont be booking anything from here as we plan to drive to Paris, we have 8 days and see where we end up. We will be flying out of Paris to home but the in between days will be an adventure. Drive through Switzerland.
We plan to drop the car at Paris airport before we stay in Paris. Dont want the car here. We think we will have 2-3 nights in Paris.
We plan on going back here on our own on another trip. but want a taste.
We love to drive as you can tell.
Let me know what this looks like to the Fodorite community, if you know the accomodation I have planned, let me know what you think.
This is the first trip to Europe, I know its busy but its a taster and we plan on many more trips on our own after this one and concentrate on the parts we loved later
Thanks in advance....
