Midway between Rome and Venice for three-generation family vacation?

Jump to last reply

My daughter & son-in-law have been "invited" to a trip to Italy summer 2017 by his parents, who will also include their own daughter & son-in-law. The four kids will be 7, 10, 14 and 18. Two older boys with one family, and two younger girls with the other. They asked for my assistance, as we travel to Europe regularly and have been to Italy 3-4 times and like to do our own research and plans. The parents never travel but have taken a few tours; everything will have to be set out for them clearly. My daughter and son-i-l want to rent a villa for everyone midway between Rome & Venice or thereabouts. A car or two will be rented, but train travel would also be preferred for day trips for some of the group. It will be for a short time, 7-10 days max, so visiting these two cities will be plenty. It seemed more cohesive to base out of a villa in a pretty village rather than hotel rooms for a few nights here and there. We have been to Tuscany (based in Montecatini), Venice (based there as well as in Padua), Como, Rome and south to the Amalfi Coast (daughter and son-in-law will save that for a couples vacation another time). Is there a town that jumps out at you, my favorite Fodorites that fills the bill? There is plenty of time to tweak itineraries or for them to leave everything to a travel agent, but I find this Forum much more informed frankly. Thanks, all.
