Italy with kids - Venice / Rome / Florence: Itinerary and Suggestions

Jump to last reply

We're traveling to Italy in late October with my parents and two kids (11 and 6). I'm trying not to run everyone all over the place. Our flights in/out of Milan are set as we used miles to fly in/out Heathrow and the times didn't work any other way (Didn't want to overnight at Heathrow either way).

Day 1: arrive late at night into Milan-Linate, stay near Central Station
Day 2: See Last Supper (booked) and Duomo, lunch in Milan, train to Venice, water taxi to hotel, overnight Venice Hilton
Day 3: Wander around Venice, bookmarked a treasure hunt for kids from this site, Venice Hilton
Day 4: train to Rome, cab to apartment near Piazza Navona, get settled
Day 5: Colosseum etc. tour with Walks of Italy (booked). They are not able to book underground portion until a couple of days before. Should I book separately online and do that after the Walks of Italy tour?
Day 6 (Wednesday): Papal Audience (booked), Appian Way bike tour with Red Bicycle
Day 7: possible day trip to Tivoli, Ostia Antica, Orvieto. Any other suggestions?
Day 8: St. Peter's, Vatican Museums at Night (booked) - do audioguide
Day 9: train to Florence, possible Symbols and Legends tour with Context Travel. Hotel suggestions?
Day 10: day trip to Pisa / Lucca
Day 11: spend day in Florence, late night train to Milan, stay near Central Station
Day 12: cab to LIN early AM flight to LHR

Any reason not to go ahead and book train trips (except for Pisa/Lucca)?

I tried to leave unscheduled time in each city. Anything else I should reserve/book? Did not get Scavi tour as we just booked our flights last week. :=)

We'll probably do one semi-nice meal in Venice, a couple in Rome, and one in Florence. I'm researching restaurant ideas next.

Getting excited!
