Tuscany or Sicily for Family Travel?

Jump to last reply

Our family including 9 yr old b/g twins are planning a summer trip to Italy. Including flight times, we will be traveling for 16-17 days with Rome & Venice on our "must" lists. Given the ages of our kids, we'd like to have some "down time" from the museums and cultural sites and are considering Tuscany or Sicily. Ideally, we'd like to rent a home/cottage/apartment with a kitchen, a swimming pool or beach nearby and simply relax with perhaps some minor sight-seeing mixed in.

We have been to Tuscany prior to kids and have never been to Sicily. Kids have never been to Italy.

Would appreciate honest feedback or pros/cons of both areas for a family.

Thanks!
