My wife (who will be 7 months pregnant) and our three young children will be flying into Rome after Christmas and staying through New Year for a total of about a week. We plan to sightsee in Rome for a maximum of 1-2 days but want to get out and see other parts of Italy. We thought about going north to see the Leaning Tower for our kids and then get a house in Tuscany. Or going south and getting a house on the Amalfi Coast as a base for exploring that area. Just trying to get a sense of where services might be more available (I've heard a lot of restaurants, etc may be closed during that time) and differences in weather, etc. Also trying to keep it family-friendly and more on the low-key side given my wife's pregnancy. Any help would be appreciated!
