Where to spend 2nd week in Italy

Jump to last reply

We are in the very early stages of planning an Italy trip for next summer. Due to our family's schedule, the only time we can go is August which is less than ideal (HOT and CROWDED) but what we have. Our plan is to do a one week bike trip in Tuscany starting and ending in Florence. We will have another week to spend and I am not sure where to go. We are traveling with our three sons (14,13,13) and want to keep them interested. They are active guys who can certainly enjoy a museum and church but perhaps not more than one a day. One thought is to go to Venice and then on to Dubrovnik for a couple days. I haven't been there in 20 years and the boys have never been. Another thought is to go down to Rome and then end with several days on the Amalfi Coast. Maybe leave Italy altogether and end with a week in Greece on a beach there. I am definitely thinking that ending with some time at the beach makes a good deal of sense for this group.

I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions for anyone familiar with this region or who has done a similar trip.

Thank you
