June Trip to Italy -- Looking for Suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. This is convoluted, so please bear with me. It's a "What would you do in these circumstances?" question.

My sister and brother-in-law have asked me to join them (and my niece, 10) on an Italy trip this summer. I have been to Italy several times but they have never been. Well, my sister and I went to Rome when she was pregnant with my niece. She loved it and has been wanting to return ever since. We have two/three weeks.

Rome is a given. Five or six days. Can be on arrival or departure.

For three days my sister and brother-in-law will go to Venice to celebrate their anniversary. My niece and I will get to have some quality time together--but where? I thought I might want to take her somewhere that is not a big city and stay at a hotel/apartment/agriturismo with a pool so she can get a break from city touring. It would be nice if this place were near somewhere that it might be easy for sister and her husband to train back to so that I could pick them up without too much trouble. I plan to rent a car for this time.

After my sister and bro-in-law rejoin us we will have another 5-8 days or so.

I've been to Umbria (Orvieto, Assisi and Gubbio). Tuscany (Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Montepulciano). Emilia Romagna (only Bologna and Ravenna). Liguria. I would be happy to visit any of these places again, but might like to see something new too. For myself, for a non-summer, non-family trip I had been thinking Le Marche, Napoli, Puglia/Basilicata.

Where would you go and why? They like art, architecture, food (though they are not "foodies"). My niece is fairly active/athletic, so I think she will want some run around time.
