I will be traveling to Italy for about 14-15 days in August 2020 with my wife and two kids (ages 4 & 9). For the first week, we will be staying in a villa in Tuscany with a few other families about 35 minutes outside of Florence. I think I have a decent idea of what I want to do for day trips during that time.
However once we leave the villa, my family and I plan to spend another 6-7 leisurely days somewhere in Italy. Ideally we would like to be on the coast somewhere with a water view and a decent beach for us to get some sun, and for the kids to play, but with some interesting town(s) nearby as well. I went to Cinque Terra in 2000 and I loved it, but I know it's a lot different these days compared to when I was there. I also don't know if we will get much hiking done since my kids are probably too small to tackle most of those trails. Amalfi Coast seems like a long drive and probably way too crowded.
Does anyone have any good recommendations for a few days or more?
We do not have flights booked yet, I plan to fly into Florence, and I could plan to fly home from another airport to avoid backtracking if necessary.
