Need help planning a trip to Italy - thanks

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

We will be traveling to Italy next summer starting around June 15th. We are hoping to have about 15 full days there + 3 days of travel time from west coast.

My early plan has about 6-7 days allocated for Tuscany area and 3-4 days for Rome. That means I have just 4-5 days for other places (but hopefully we will make another trip to Italy sometime in future).

We have two kids ages 6 and 10 - and they are happy travelers. They like wandering around in cities, little bit of museums, parks, small hikes, ocean....and just learning about different cultures. While we do want the trip to be kids friendly, we don't have hard limitations in terms of walking or activities.

What would you recommend for us? I am open to make changes to Tuscany and Rome part as well.

Also, I saw that Milan and Rome seem to be the best options for flying in/out. Should we add Milan to our itinerary just because of convenience and ticket prices?

thanks,
Meg
