Italy Itinerary - Round Two

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all of you who replied to my previous post on this topic.

Our party of two has increased to a party of 4 - and the timing is now late March/early April of 2016.

My son and his GF are joining us and I'm really so excited and thrilled! My son's GF is a teacher and so they will be limited to only one week in Italy with us -- my DH and I will continue on for another week as we have no restrictions on time.

Here are my questions:
I recently researched American Airlines FF award chart and found that I can book an open jaw ticket from Philly (into Rome and out of Venice) - does it make sense to spend the week my son and GF are there by splitting it between the two cities? I was thinking 3 days in Rome (Sun/Mon/Tue) and then Venice (Wed/Thu/Fri) where my son and his GF would then fly home and DH and I would continue on....probably to the AC or Cinque Terre.

I've considered flipping it around (fly into Venice/out of Rome) but the outbound Rome/Philly flights on the back end are triple the miles, and I'd like to be able to fly the 4 of us out using FF miles only.

Or is it too much moving around? My son would love to see more than just Rome and the flights work out well for his GF's school schedule...we're OK taking a train to Venice, not really looking to rent a car.

We're not exactly road warriors, but DH and I visited 4 cities in Spain in 2 weeks' time and found it so much fun seeing it all! The youngsters (son and GF) are certainly game to hit the road after just a few days in Rome.

This is all just preliminary, but would appreciate the advice of my fellow Fodorites....you've never steered me wrong and I've planned my France and Spain trips with your advice and both of those trips were perfect.
