Italy trip at Christmas

Jump to last reply

Wow, what an amazing forum! I'm looking for some advice!

Spending Christmas in Italy with my 3 teenaged children. The plan is to fly into Rome and also travel to Florence and Venice. As I've read the forum I think we were spending too many days in Rome so I've decided to arrive in Rome and then take a train to Naples for a overnight. Then 3 days in Rome, leaving on Christmas, Florence for 3 days and Venice for 2. It is our first visit but hopefully first of many.

Here are my questions:

Great hotel/area in Naples?
Thinking about Sofitel Villa Borghese in Rome near Spanish steps, feedback?
In Florence Lungarno Apartments which is next to the hotel, feedback on location/apartments?
Best spot to stay in Venice? I want to be close to the canals but mindful of flooding and overly busy spots.
It looks like the trains cannot be booked yet because of the fare change the second week of December, is that true?
Restaurant rec in ghetto in Rome...

I appreciate any other tidbits/advice/thoughts/restaurants/must sees! I have gone and read much of the forum!
