Italy with Teens

Jump to last reply

I am hoping I get as much help this time as I did last year in planning our family trip to the Dordogne- which was FANTASTIC! This
June 1, we plan to go to Italy with our sons-ages 17, 13, and 13. They are all good travelers, but they are typical male teens with typical interests. I prefer to stay in as few places as possible and do day trips rather than repack every night. Based on what I read on this site, I am thinking of a 14 day trip (including travel to/from Miami) to Rome, Sorrento (as a base for the coast, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri) and then Venice (which I guess we should fly to). My only other possibility is Florence, because my husband has a close cousin who married and settled there 25 years ago. However, Florence, itself, doesn't seem like it would be great for my boys. My questions are:
o What are the opinions re the overall itinerary? And the number of nights in each place?
o How do we get from Sorrento to Venice? I've read various postings re overnight trains and planes.
o Are we making a mistake by skipping Florence with the kids?
(By the way, my husband and I have been to all these places alone 25 years ago.)
Thanks!
