Questions for Franco! about Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi Franco, you seem to be the Italy expert here on Fodors. I am in the beginning stages of planning a family trip with DH and two daugthers 20 and 19 to Italy. A first time to Italy for all of us. 20 year old daughter is taking Italian next semester in college.

Planning on a trip in May for about two weeks. I think we need to spend 5-6 nights in Rome to really see the sights, possibly then Florence and Venice. I don't want to do a rush through Italy seeing it all in two weeks, but enjoying our time there. I think staying in an apartment in Rome would be ideal since the kids are adults and having the space would be great for a more reasonably priced trip.

I have looked at your thread that is over 440 responses on where to stay and I thought I would throw out some new requests since reading it all is overwhelming. Where to stay? Would like a two bedroom apartment with a/c in a good central location where we can sleep at night, but walk to everything or a lot of stuff and easy access to transportation. People seem to recommend the campo de fiore and trastevere (not spelling right). Found one in the Piazza del popolo which is near the Pantheon and Spanish Steps. SleepinItaly seems to be a reputable company to rent from from recent Fodors posting.

This is the apartment I was looking at.
So much to read about to find a good spot, safe and centrally located for a decent price!

Do you recommend visiting Florence and Venice or would you recommend another part of Italy instead, perhaps the Italian Riviera?
