Trying to figure out what to do with two free nights/days following Venice?

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow Fodorites! I'm travelling with my wife and kids (boys 10 and 8) for a little over two weeks on our first Italy trip - we fly into and out of Rome. We have already programmed 5 nights in Rome followed by 5 nights in Lucca (using that as a base to explore Florence plus surrounding area) and then head to Venice for 3 nights. Unfortunately these first 13 nights are no longer flexible. So...I then have two more days/nights remaining before heading back to Rome for our last night prior to a late morning flight. I'm struggling on a great way to end the trip that would be fun and relaxing for my wife and I and also engage the boys.

Some options I'm considering:

1) Go to Lake Garda for a couple of days and relax by the lake, go see a couple of lake towns, hang at the pool, do a day trip to Verona (i know that's not enough time) - relatively doable from Venice through Verona.

2) Use Verona as a base and spend a couple of days exploring that town ora day driving to Lake Garda. Wondering if my kids will be tiring of towns and sites by this time and will yearn for outdoor activities.

3) Head to an agriturismo place near Florence...or Siena?

4) Rimini? Dolomites? Stay in Venice for another two nights and use that as a base for some day trips? My wife has been to Venice and she isn't keen on staying more than three nights there but maybe that's the best option.

Would love to hear from others that have done some of the things above and/or folks that traveled with kids and had great experiences.

Thank you so much!
