Northern Italy with Kids?

Jump to last reply

We could use some help with our itenerary in Northern Italy. My wife and I have two boys, who will be 5 and turning 7 on the trip. The only destination that is set is a week with friends and family on Lake Como (Varenna).

We are looking for advice on the other week. We are tenatively planning to fly into Venice (3 days), drive to Lake Como (we'll have the "community car", 7 days), drive to Dolomites (Bolzano?, Cortina?, 2 Days), drive to Florence (2 days) -fly home from Florence.

I've never been to Italy and we haven't visited Europe with the kids, although they have traveled quite a bit. Any suggestions on upgrading our intenerary? Any suggestions on places to stay with a family? Should we visit other places in Tuscany, rather than Florence? We like outdoors stuff and the boys are, shall we say, "active".

Thanks.
