Italy with my mom

Jump to last reply

My mom and I will be in Italy for 10 days (June 10-21). I'll be meeting her in Venice (coming from Croatia) and then we'll eventually fly out of Rome (on 6/21).

While I've been to Italy before (mostly Florence and Venice), my mom has never been. I'm excited to see Venice and Florence again, and through her eyes, but I'm also excited to explore Rome and hopefully do a couple other day trips (Cinque Terre, Naples).

One thing that I need to keep in mind is age difference. While I live in a city and am used to walking all day/everyday, my mom's not. Moreover, she broke her leg a couple of summers ago and while she's healed, she has a fear of falling/hurting it again.

Any tips for traveling with a parent? Would she have enough to do in Cinque Terre (even if I went off and explored/hiked on my own)?

Right now we're thinking 2 nights in Venice, 5 nights in Florence (with day trips here and there), and 3 nights in Rome.

Would love/appreciate any tips/suggestions for day trips and places to stay! Many thanks in advance!
