Suggestions about Italy Vacation

We are a Canadian family (with 2 teenage daughters)who are planning a summer vacation in Italy. We are really excited -can't wait to see the sights and taste the great food. We would like to spend part of our time on a nice beach, relaxing and taking in the sun. Has anyone got any suggestions where to go? Any help would be appreciated.

bringing your message back up to the top

and hoping that this does not require further explanation on what the term "topping" means.

Anne, I would have to know more to answer well. When, how long, car or trains, arrival/departure location ????
Lots of good options, but it will need to fit your overall plan.

Depending on how much time you have, a few days in rome would be nice, then head down to the Amalfi Coast (3 hours by train to Salerno, rent a car in Salerno and drive to Amalfi). The coast is gorgeous, with dramatic high cliffs plunging into the blue blue waters of the Mediterranean, and along the way, picturesque Italian towns to sleep, eat and visit. The beaches are very nice, but don't miss all there is to see. I recommend chartering a boat to allow you to see the coast from the sea. It's amazing! There is a service La Dolce Vita ( that has a 47' yacht with bathrooms, bedrooms, showers, refrig, tv, everything you can imagine! We took the trip leaving from Amalfi, travelling down the coast to go for a swim in the Li Galli islands off of Positano, then continued onto Nerano for lunch. We then went with the boat around Capri, had another swim and then into the grotta azzurra before getting off onto Capri for an afternoon of shopping and visiting the island. It was our favorite day of the whole vacation.
