Two adults, two kids 9 and 6. With a car. First time to these parts of Italy.
Would love advice!
Here's the plan, order is adjustable:
Arrive Pisa airport 11am (no jet lag, we live in Europe so off we go)
Drive to agriturismo rental near Volterra and settle in
Volterra, Monteriggioni, Siena
Montepulciano (La Foce?), Pienza, San Quirico
Bagno Vignono, Abbey Sant' Antimo, Montalcino
San Gimignano, Greve, more this day?
Out of time in Tuscany, would love to see Elba Island and Cortona but not sure how to prioritize.
Drive to Varenna via Tellaro or Parma or ???
Settle into apartment near Varenna
Day 7 - 10:
-Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna, Lenno.
-Vezio Castle, Villa Balbianello.
-Lunch at Rifugio Martina in San Primo above Bellagio
-Is Isola Comacina worth the visit if you don't eat at the restaurant (I could just see my kids faced with 65 euros worth of fish and veggies!)
-Possible alpine driving tour from Menaggio?
-Possibly kayak out of Menaggio?
-Boat tour of the lake?
-Considering trip into Switzerland but not sure it's worth the time away from Lake Como.
Depart Bergamo airport on day 11.
Thank you so much for your opions/advice!
