Rome - Pompeii - Florence Vacation - Help! (Especially the Pompeii part)

Jump to last reply

I am trying to coordinate our family's first trip through Europe this summer. We only have 4 1/2 days in Italy and want to make the most of it. We have two active boys (ages 8 & 11). We arrive at 8:30am on a Monday morning into Rome from a direct flight from the USA. We have to fly out of Florence on Friday @ 2:55pm. Here are our thoughts so far:

Monday - Get settled, walk around a bit, take in a 3.5 hour Coliseum, Roman Forum, & Palatine Hill on a Tour @ 3pm.

Tuesday - Rent a car and drive down to Pompeii to do a private tour (2.5 hours) at 2 pm.

Wednesday - Take in the Vatican (St. Peter Basilica, Sistine Chapel, and Vatican Museum) 3.5 hour tour @ 1pm.

Thursday - Take the Train to Florence around 10am or 11am. Visit the Duomo and walk around a bit.

Friday morning - Go to see Statue of David @ Accedemia. Then fly out @ 2:55pm

My biggest question is on Tuesday (Pompeii trip), should we make this a day trip returning to Rome late that evening (and thus keep the same hotel in Rome for 3 nights), or should we spend more time in the Pompeii region (eg. Amalfi, Sorrento, Naples)??? My wife LOVES the ocean so I think I'd like to stay somewhere in the region for Tuesday Night and return to Rome on Wednesday morning. I just don't know where? Need some help please.

Also if you see any problems with my vision of a trip so far, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!!!
