My family of 5 ( 3 kids: 9, 12, 14) will be doing to Italy during the first 2 wks of June. This will be our first time there and we wanted to do a general overview/sampling of the country. Obviously 10 days is not a lot of time, however I wanted to run by our tentative itinerary by the more seasoned travelers to see if what we are planning is doable. Thank you in advance for any advice, suggestions, commentaries, etc! We are super excited about this trips and understand we cannot do everything. Our hope is to go back in the future and stay longer in just 1-2 places.
