We will be in Italy for 8 days in the 2nd week of of April with our 8 and 10 year old. We will be flying in and out of Rome from NYC. This trip is to celebrate my son's birthday so we want to do things that would interest a child- he is studying about Roman history and Julius Ceasar, so we definitely want to spend a few days in Rome and see the sights. Probably 3 days. Looking for suggestions of other places we can go/visit in April that will be interesting to the kids.
My husband and I spent 3 weeks in Italy for our honeymoon (and loved every minute of it) and have been to Milan, Venice, Florence and Rome, and ideally would love to see something new in addition to Rome during this trip.
We'd be open to going north or south (not sure whether the Amalfi coast will be recommended in early April though), so would love to hear some ideas and suggestions for the other 4-5 days. Open to touristy or off the beaten path suggestions.
Thanks so much!
