We are taking a family holiday - first time (for kids) to Europe for a month. Flying into London and heading to Germany where we will base ourselves for a week (near Frankfurt ) including 2-3 days in Paris. We then plan to head down to Italy by train and base ourselves somewhere in Tuscany and do day trips to Florence, Rome, Sienna and get a feel for the village life in Italy. Prior to this we will go to Venice for a couple of days. Looking at travelling beginning of October. We are thinking of hiring a car to travel around Tuscany. We would rather spend time in one place and get a good look rather than rush and see too much Any ideas on where to stay, I was thinking of a villa with a swimming pool - will it be too cold at that time of the year? What are the essentials to see - kids are 12 and 14 and not into museums.
