Italy with 2 kids in July

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am planning a possible trip to Italy this summer because I want to take my children (5 and 7 years old) there. I have a few questions and will be grateful if you can give me a hint.

First, I want to mention that we want to go to Pienza (for a week) and Venice. Anything else can be negotiated. We are willing to drive in the countryside but do not want to drive from Pienza to Venice (or vice versa) straight. And we want to go in July (school holidays) for 2 weeks.

1. Should we start from Pienza or from Venice?
2. Is there anywhere interesting and child-friendly as a base in between the two destinations that we can spend some days?
3. Am I thinking right to skip Rome and Florence altogether? I just guess that they are going to be too crowded and hot for the kids who cannot really enjoy the cities/sites at that time of the year.

Some background: my husband and I have been to Italy two/three times. And we have been to the Amalfi Coast, Rome, Southern Tuscany, Florence and Venice. This trip, we are not looking for anything specific except to relax and have fun with the kids and to show them Pienza (where we got married). We like to wander around, take our time, eat and drink.

Do you have any suggestions to help us to make this family trip?
