Need advice - Italy & parents

Jump to last reply

Hi! We could really use advice in planning a 17-day trip to Italy in late September/early October. My brother and I are taking my parents to Italy as sort of a last hurrah. My parents are in their late sixties and not quite as mobile as they used to be, though they would never say that! They have always dreamed of going to Italy and we’re finally able to make it happen for them. This will be the first time in Italy for all of us.

Our goal is to show my parents many of the major sites without (hopefully) wearing them out. Our tentative itinerary is as follows:

Thursday depart for Italy
1 Friday arrive Venice
2 Saturday Venice
3 Sunday Venice
4 Monday Venice/Vernazza (car)
5 Tuesday Vernazza (car)
6 Wednesday Vernazza/Tuscancy (car)
7 Thursday Tuscany (car)
8 Friday Tuscany (car)
9 Saturday Tuscany (car)
10 Sunday Tuscany/Rome (car/drop car)
11 Monday Rome
12 Tuesday Rome
13 Wednesday Rome
14 Thursday Rome
15 Friday Rome/Amalfi (car)
16 Saturday Amalfi/Pompei (car)
17 Sunday Amalfi/Rome (drop car)
18 Monday Rome/depart

We’ll have a car outside of our Venice and Rome stops. A couple of questions…

- Is this itinerary realistic? Are we trying to do too much?
- What’s a good base area for the Tuscany portion?
- We want to rent an apartment in Rome. What’s the best location if we plan on seeing the main attractions?

Any help, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
