Rome, Florence, and Venice in 7 days--Is It Doable?

Jump to last reply

My parents and I are going to Italy in May for a family vacation and want to see Rome, Florence, and Venice, but we're only going to have a little less than 7 days on the ground (it's technically 8 days including air travel). I want to try to fit in Rome, Florence, and Venice in that amount of time.

A little bit more about us:
-I'm a college student, and my parents are in their late 50s (and they're not the most active people), so we'll most likely not be able to actually do all that I want to pack in, which I'm anticipating.
-We love history and art, so the more museums and churches, the better.
-We've been to Europe before--Paris for 3 days a few years ago--but this is our first time in Italy. None of us speak Italian, but I'm always up for trying to speak as much of the native language as possible while I'm there.

As of now, I'm thinking of flying into Rome, spending three days there, taking the train to Florence, spending 2 days there, and then spending a day in Venice (flying out either from Venice or back in Rome). Does this sound feasible? What are your must-see places in these cities? I would love to hear your recommendations!
