First Family trip to Europe - start with Italy?

Jump to last reply

Our family of four has concentrated its travel thus far in the US with several fabulous trips to our national parks (as well as some Caribbean, Florida, Northeast travel). We think it's time to show the kids (now ages 10 and 12) other cultures. Leading contenders for the first trip (either April 2007 or august 2007) are: Italy, London/Scotland or Spain. Italy is the top contender.

I'm interested in some Fodorite reactions to our plans. If we do Italy in April 2007, what do you think of this itinerary:

Rome - 3 nights
Positano/Pompeii - 2 nights
Venice - 2 nights

Could add 2 nights to this itinerary. Have avoided Florence (I know you will all question this) as my husband and I don't think the kids will appreciate the art and we also don't want to do too much. Husband really wants Rome and Pompeii. I'd like Positano and the kids want Venice.

I'm a bit concerned that it will be too cool in April but I know how incredibly hot it can be in August (I've been to Rome in August).

Or would you do London/Scotland first?
