Last few days in Italy -- North of Tuscany -- ideas?

Jump to last reply

My family (myself, husband, kids ages 11, 9, and 5.5) are going to Italy this July with my husband's family. We will spend a few days in Rome and then a week in Tuscany. Following that, I'd like for just the 5 of us to take a few days for a third destination. But where?

My first inclination was the Cinque Terres, though I've since heard it may not be a good fit for younger kids. Mine are good to hike a couple miles in the California canyons but that is not constant up-and-down.

Now I am wondering if there are other destinations on the Ligurian coast we should be considering. I've heard Portofino is very expensive. Would Genoa be a city worth visiting for 3 days? Or should we consider the lakes region? The kids are interested in Venice but have been warned that July is quite possibly the worst time to visit and perhaps would be easier with somewhat older children.

Your experience and suggestions would be most welcome!

Amy
