Itinerary help Italy

Jump to last reply

I am trying to plan a trip end of April with my husband and 12 year old twins in honor of my mom who passed away recently. I have been to Italy a few times but it has been a while. For this trip we only have 11 days. Help. This is what we were thinking: Venice, Cinque Terre, Rome and day trip to Pompeii.
What makes sense? Fly in and out of say Rome and take the train up to Venice and back? Or does it make sense to fly into Rome and out of Venice? (yes, money is an issue).

With 12 year old boys we thought a combination of ruins, the beauty of Venice, and some hiking along in CInque Terre might be a good mix. I just want to have some time outside of a city and get away from crowds.

Finally, would a travel agent be a good way to book plane tickets and train tickets? Or am I better on Kayak? Do I need to get a train pass for the week?
Thank you
