london itinery for first time family

Jump to last reply

Hi after much research on this wonderful Fodor's forum and trip advisor, I have come up with a first draft itinery for our italian leg of our Europe holiday. We are a family of 4 (2 daughters aged 11 and 8) and plan to be in Italy 9 days.Kids are very good travellers and happy to walk.

Our itinery so far:
Day 1 - Fly to Venice from Paris
Day 2 - Venice - Doge's Palace secret itineraries tour, St Mark's Basilica and sightseeing of Venice
Day 3 - Day trip by train to Verona - self guided tour using Rick Steeves book
Day 4 - Fast Train to Florence in morning.Walk through Piazza della signoria, Uffizi Museum, walk over Ponte Vecchio bridge and walk to Piazza Michaelangelo. ?doable
Day 5 - Florence -Accademia, Mercato San Lorenzo, Duomo late afternoon. Pizza and gelato making class 6pm
Day 6 - Full day tour to Sienna, San Gimignano and leaning tower of Pisa
Day 7 - Train to Rome in morning.Spanish steps, trevi fountain, piazza navona, piazza del popolo
Day 8 - Private walking tour of ancient Rome in morning. In afternoon visit the Pantheon and surrounding area.
Day 9 - Private tour of Vatican
Day 10 - fly home

I am wondering if we may need an extra day in Venice and in particular am unsure if we should stay near the train station in view of our plans or if you can recommend somewhere else that we can stay that will be good for our plans. As we will be away a total of one month, we will have luggage but will try to restrict to 2 medium cases and 2 hand luggage if possible - bit nervous about transporting luggage in Venice ??

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
