seeking ideas on travel schedule for Christmas 2014

Jump to last reply

This is my second post regarding our future trip - thank you to those who previously commented regarding Rome or Siena for Christmas!

This is a very bare-bones schedule. I am looking for comments regarding the days allocated to the various places. We parents are returning to Rome for our third time, but have never been to Naples - our children have never been to Naples, Rome or Tuscany. We are a family of 4 - 2 adults, 2 teen children. I am planning very early so we can get accommodations asap as we will be going over the Christmas holidays.

Once I have the schedule set - I will fill it in with an actual itinerary activities for later comments too.

In the meantime, here's the plan:

December 20, 2014 Arrive Rome (stay Rome 12/20 - 12/27)

December 27 - leave Rome Arrive Naples (stay Naples 12/27 - 12/30)
while in Naples we plan to day trip to Paestum and see Pompeii and the museum.

December 30 - leave Naples car travel to Siena (stay Siena 12/30 - 1/3)
While in Siena we plan to day trip to Florence and Assisi and perhaps visit Etruscan sites.

January 4 - Leave for home from Rome

does this make sense? Is there any reason to change out any of the days for somewhere else? Should we stay in Florence rather than Siena? I chose Siena for the ease of seeing other towns - and because I really like Siena. We have rented cars twice in Italy and had no trouble driving around.

thanks in advance for any input
