Italy with my 18 year old daughter

Jump to last reply

My daughter and i are planning a trip to Europe right after her high school graduation. So we will be there the last two weeks in May and into June. She will be 18 at the time. For most of the time it will just be the two of us. My husband might be able to join us for about a week in the middle of the trip. We have up to a month to stay and she is thinking that she would like for the first 2 - 3 weeks of that to be in Italy. I've been to Europe twice - once when I was her age to Germany, Switzerland, Austria - and about 5 years ago with my husband to Italy. This is really *her* trip and she is making most of the decisions about where to go and what to see. However, we both feel that we need a little advice!!

In order of importance she wants to see: Tuscan hill towns, Rome, Cinque Terre, Venice, Florence. As far as travel order - we were thinking about flying into and starting in Rome and making our way north ending in Venice. She is quite mature for her age and will enjoy museums and art and history, but even more I think she is a "soak up the atmosphere" kind of girl. Shopping and food will be also be important.

We have researched by the way. We have both read travel books and looked extensively online...even so, we are struggling with finding a balance between seeing as much as we can without it being too much switching hotels, knowing how long to stay where, what to leave out, etc.

Oh and we plan to use trains to get from major city to major city as well as rent a car for the Tuscany portion of the trip.

So, got any itinerary suggestions for a mother daughter duo who have about 18ish days on the ground in Italy and who mostly get along and enjoy the same types of things?

Thanks!
