Itinerary help 2

Jump to last reply

I am back now that I have my airline tickets and could use help.

We are a family of four and we don't like luxury (maybe we would but we can't afford luxury). We don't like Youth Hostels. We just want comfortable and away from loud crowds of tourists.

We are landing in Venice and staying two nights. Trying to book an apartment there for those nights.

From there? ___________________where do we go? By Train. And as I mentioned, this trip is to honor my mom who just passed away... so I am thinking 1-2 nights somewhere quiet and peaceful. A small Tuscan town? Maybe Siena? I am feeling sad. I love Assisi but have been there multiple times. Ideas between Venice and Rome (probably not Florence although?? maybe... I just want to avoid crowds staring at art through someone's armpit).

We end our 12 days in Rome (where we fly out) but we have this middle part to plan. My kids will enjoy some art and some history but also just walking and being outside and looking. But this age can be moody and get tired.

I am booking apartments to stay in Venice and Rome. I was thinking Piazza Navone (too loud??) and for Venice... just off the beaten path.
thank you
