We are traveling to Italy this summer and will be in Italy for 12 nights. We are a family of 3 (our son is 20) and we're traveling with another family who has two sons (16 & 19) so basically 7 adults.
We are feeling a little overwhelmed with how to plan this and I'm hoping for a few itinerary tips. We don't want it to feel too rushed like we're hopping from place to place with one night here and one night there but we're also realizing that 12 nights isn't as much as you think it is when you are looking at covering some ground.
We know want to see Rome, Florence/Tuscany, and Cinque Terre. Then some of us were thinking we would like to see Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast, as well as Venice. But then others are like, Amalfi/Pomepii too out of the way, leave it for another trip.
I realize we are all over the map! LOL but we're just not sure where to fly into and out of...what makes the most sense? To travel up or down the country? Any tips will be greatly appreciated!
We're also thinking of using Airbnb because in most cases a large apt or house is less expensive than multiple hotel rooms. Is there another service aside from Airbnb that we should check out?
Thanks in advance!!!
